I've been to Bagel Central a couple of times, and each time the food has been fresh and the service was great. The last time I went, I had the chicken salad sandwich on a plain bagel (I wasn't feeling adventurous that day). Nonetheless, it was delicious. I've also had a grilled cheese on a bagel and it was great... More

I've started making a stop here part of my Sunday morning routine. The bagels are always very fresh and taste great. The lox spread is some of the best bagel topping ever. They have new specialty cream cheese topping each time we go in. Our most recent visit my wife had the blueberry topping which was excellent. The service is... More

We actually didn't eat a bagel here - but stopped in for lunch and had some very tasty sandwiches. The bread and meats all tasted fresh and my roast beef was extremely tender.

Tucked in Downtown Bangor, Bagel Central is great place to grab a bite to eat for many of us who live and work in the Downtown area. You've got to try to the raisin bagels, and my favorite dish, a water bagel with Nova Salmon and cream cheese. Prices are lower than other eating establishments in the Downtown area, and... More

Liked the cinnamon raisin. We come back here almost every other day for the cinnamon raisin with honey butter. Love it.

Best place to get a quick bite to eat. It is not far from the Charles Inn...just walk down Central Street and it just past the Fryer's Bake house.

My wife and I have eaten here a couple of times, usually with friends or family because it has ample seating and moderately quick service. I have, on numerous occasions, encountered what I believe to be "less than fresh" menu items and bagels. Just one look into the glass case near the entry and you can't help but ask "How... More

Our first time here in about 3 years. We went in for a breakfast, which isn't your ordinary ham & eggs style. Service was fast & food excellent. Large open, almost cafeteria style, eating area. Seemed like it is a gathering place for the artsy, Democratic, Obama crowd & if one can concentrate on the quality of the bagels, you... More

The line was literally out the door on Sunday morning and I know why: the awesome bagels and the atmosphere. The order taker was friendly and knowledgable. There was a large selection of bagels and creme cheese to choose from and everyone in our group loved their bagel they ordered. I liked that there are community tables as well smaller... More

We eat here at least every two weeks. Everything is made from scratch without preservatives. I like taking home a loaf of marble/rye. Be sure to try their soup of the day.
