Best bagel ever! And soo much more.

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 !

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.

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

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
