Fun little spot-- don't be deceived by the outside, and be sure to eat out back in the quiet, shaded garden! Food is good, with some nice touches-- had a bacon, egg, cheese & onion omelet-- the grilled Bermuda onions were a perfect touch to blend with the other flavors. Bagels are huge, ask to have butter in the side-... More

My gripe is two-fold. One: I have definitely noticed a change - and not a good one at that - in all the bagels. They are not the same as they were (and like I say, not nearly as good as they used to be). Two: I usually get the open-faced bagel and lox for breakfast and while it's usually... More

Love 158 PSC. Very friendly staff, good service (you will have to wait a little longer for grub than at fast food places) and funky urban atmosphere. Awesome food. Grab a bagel and Joe to go and take it to Bug Light Park and hang out...or stay in their small dining area. One of my favorite breakfast bakeries in PWM... More

First off this is a small out of the way spot...with poor parking and a small dinning area and yet I am rather addicted to Cafe 158. I find myself driving there time and time again. Josh the owner is an artisan bread baker to start with an eye for detail. The place is small, artsy, eclectic and comfortable. If... More

Bagels are similar to Scratch bagels, but have been not as puffy as the Scratch variety lately. Service takes a while. Good cold, fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juices at the ready. Sandwiches are pretty good, but again, take a while. This is a nice, cozy spot to grab a coffee and bagel or something else tasty if you're in... More

My wife and I went to the Portland Head Light today and were famished after our visit. I used an app on my phone to find a breakfast place nearby and stumbled on 158 Pickett Street Cafe. We walked in and the place was pretty chaotic with several students from a local community college hanging out, drinking coffee or grabbing... More

This place is great I've had almost everything on the menu and almost every bagel (can't speak for their drinks other than chai, which is great) very cozy atmosphere with great people and tasty food!

While visiting Portland, our local friends took us here for breakfast. We arrived during the "crunch" time and waited to place our orders, while some of us scouted for seats in the back yard. The back is very cool, with tables and chairs under the trees. I ordered the "Hog Zilla" which is a triple-pork bagel sandwich, and the bagels... More

We stopped into 158 to have breakfast. It's a cozy little place with indoor and outdoor seating. It was crowded when we got them but we put our order in and were served quickly. Breakfast sandwiches on bagels that are really good. Not quite as good as NY but a nice surprise. We had really awesome iced mochas. They also... More
