Best bagels and Danishes Around!

Delicious bagels and Danishes! We love to stop in for breakfast. We love all the specialty cream cheeses too! I only wish they would bring back the maple walnut cream cheese!

It is nice to travel outside of NYC and find good bagels. They are doughy but not exactly as doughy as a NYC bagel. A little more bread like but very good. Large dining area with window seats and tables of various sizes. Good variety of bagels, freshly made breads and cream cheese spread. Great lox too. Open when many... More

All through college I was obsessed with these bagels...toasted plain because they are that amazing. The blueberry and apple cinnamon are my favorites and every time I am home this is one of my stops to stick my freezer in texas up!

My friends suggested I go here since its gotten rave reviews. I tried it for the first time and was blown away. The bagels are delicious, soft, and fresh. The prices are quite reasonable too. They also offer vegetarian and gluten free options.

Have been going to bagel shop for years along with everyone else in Greater Bangor. Best bagels, great breakfasts, plenty of seating and super low prices make this a do not miss destination when you are in town. Eat where us locals eat!!

The food for a Jewish deli is very Americanized, but tasty and generous. It's one of my teenage son's favorites

I would like to say first that Bagel Central is very clean and spacious...great natural lighting too with ample seating. Unfortunately it takes forever for them to prepare a couple toasted bagels...let alone a mixed order for a couple people. On my last visit...and in just one example... I waited 17 minutes for 3 breakfast sandwiches (Bagelwiches) to go. The... More

I had breakfast here two days in a row. I liked it enough after one try that I went back. They had a great selection of food, it was clean, airy with lots of room. It took a while to get the order up, especially the first day. That's the only negative I had.

Nice food in a nice space... I particularly like the art for sale on the walls. Bagels are always fresh. Best advice I can give is to get there early before your favorite kind sells out! Kid friendly.
