I stumbled upon this place over the weekend while trying to find a place for breakfast. I arrived at 7:30AM and the place was busy. We stood in line for around 10 minutes to place our order. This place has several breakfast items to choose and pastries and bagels. The breakfast was nothing special. I must say the bagels tasted... More

Very good omelet and bagels not the norm. Saw some reviews complaining that Bagel Central's bagels weren't like NYC bagels, so we tried it. True, they're not NYC bagels...but everybody has thick, chewy bagels. These are more bread-like, lighter and softer than traditional. Was there on a Sunday morning, and the place had a nice vibe of families, couples and... More

A great place to stop for breakfast and catch up with what's going on in Bangor. The bagels are the best (try out the lox spread, yumm...) and the crowds are great.

I adore this place. It's a perfect hang out for any day of the week (except closed on Sat!). Cafe food is very filling and yummy. Prices are low. Coffee is not my favorite (I prefer Giacomos), but you can't beat the fresh made bagels, cookies, and oh ... the spinach pie is to die for.

These bagels are just wonderful - a different texture than most - not quite as dense. Wonderful choices - I had the apple cinnamon and brought it home to toast later - that cinnamon sugar topping crusted over perfectly in the toaster - softer inside than many bagels - I LOVED it ! Our party also ordered bagel/egg choices, veggie... More

Long a Kosher restaurant, the owners withdrew that designation several years ago. What has not changed is the excellence of the soups, egg dishes, sandwiches and pastries. I especially love the black and white cookies, which are as good as anywhere else I've ever been.

Great bagels with their own cream cheeses, sandwiches, brutal eclairs (HUGE) and other deserts. You can't miss at Bagel Central.

I ALWAYS time my drives through New England and into New Brunswick so I can stay overnight in Bangor and leave with a Bagel Central bun in my mouth the next morning. The BEST onion bagels slathered with LOX SPREAD which was better than the same thing I had in New York City the previous morning! They are so generous... More

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.
