Great food - every single time.

Every experience I have had at Bagel Central has been a great one. From bagels to omelets to spinach pie and the best vegan cheesecake ever - they have never disappointed me.

Bagel Central, originally The Bagel Shop, has maintained the quality bakery/deli of its original owners. Everything in the bakery is outstanding and the Bagels cannot be surpassed. You place and pick up your own order and sit in a cafeteria type atmosphere. Its relaxed, sunny atmosphere but can be a little loud. The down side, is the use of Styrofoam,... More

My son recommended this place and we went every day for a bagel with herb garlic cream cheese. This was the best bagel I hav ever had. Light and delicious. I will make it my fav bagel place in Bangor!

I first discovered this place towards the end of my time in college just north of Bangor. I am a sucker for a good bagel, and immediately fell in love upon tasting these. They are the kind that are meant to be toasty on the outside and soft in the middle. I have yet to find something I don't like... More

The Standpipe is our favorite sandwich! Good for two to share with on extra side of potato salad (that they finally learned how to make correctly!) The bagels are the best in town with a variety of yummy toppings Don't bother with the potato pancakes though... I think they pre make then freeze them...yuck

If you like bagels and cream cheese you will love Bagel Central. Both are the best you can get anywhere. Bagel Central serves the best breakfast in town and there is a large selection to choose from for lunch. The bakery case is so inviting you just cannot resist getting something from it. Regardless of whether you just want to... More

The bagels here are the best you'll find in the Bangor area, which is evidenced by the line that often forms at the counter. It's especially busy on Sunday mornings or at lunch time during the week. It is worth the wait. The in-house cream cheese is yummy and the lox always seems fresh. My only critique is that the... More

If a person just wants to stop for a cup of coffee (or any cup of hot brew), take a break from a humdrum day or even a trying situation, having one of these homemade bagels is such a treat! They are delicious, and there is no skimping on the cream cheese (which is served on the side). Whether for... More

I have been to Bagel Central a few times now and the food us really amazing. Usually I just get a plain bagel but you can't go wrong. Ive also tried the pastrami sandwich and that was also was really great. A great place for breakfast and lunch. Also should be mentioned that they are NOT open on saturdays for... More
