This morning I left a local election event in South Portland, Maine after several friendly locals told us to "be sure to go down the road to '158' for the best coffee in town." They were right! As out-of-towners, with a love of rich strong coffee, we had asked for a referral. 158 sits in an industrial zone near the... More

If you're in Portland, do yourself a favor and get yourself over to SOUTH Portland for a truly awesome, homemade bagel. A choice of cream cheeses: plain, herb or chili-garlic. Or hummus if you opt for the hippie bagel (delicious). The smoked salmon is delicious. The bagels come from the nearby Scratch Bakery (literally around the corner) and they are... More

If you are looking for a sit down place to have a Scratch bagel, the former partner created more of a restaurant setting. Great to know if Scratch is sold out!

We were there for breakfast. Homemade bagels make an incredible breakfast sandwich. I had egg and sausage with Maine Jack cheese. Eat inside or out, it's right next to a marina and very relaxed. The décor is very original and fun. Even the bathroom was decorated like a South Sea's Island Tiki hut. That's a first, we all had to... More

Went here on our last visit to Portland and were very impressed with the baked goods so made a special detour on our way home this time to pick up some food for the road. Unfortunately they had no chocolate chip cookies or brownies that day, but the muffins and bagels were terrific. And the guy who got our food... More

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
