We had been shopping downtown and stopped in for lunch. You order at 1 counter and pick up at another. It was fast. We had a ruben sandwich and a pastrami melt. Came with a side. We had pasta salad. Servings were generous. Seating is at large tables. Make new friends. Would eat there again.

Passing through Bangor: happened along the shop while looking for something else. Good food & service. Was open, despite Fbook & Trip Advisor thinking it closed on a Saturday.

Saturday ritual usually starts with a trip to Bagel Central to get breakfast bagels to go. This is another place in town where I can satisfy my gluten free belly with delicious food. They have gluten free bagels in a variety of flavors; the 'everything' bagel is my favorite. The line moves quickly and the staff is very friendly. I... More

We went here for breakfast on the recommendation of the Comfort Inn front desk staff. Excellent choice. Many items to choose from including vegan and soy products. Great way to start the day.

Bagel Central is the local downtown hang out for breakfast. Great bagels, various types of cream cheese, great coffee, lox and eggs ..etc. Also they have free wifi and a meeting room next door. You walk in, place your order and they call out your number... no table service.

I like Bagel Central for its location. Many locals are familiar with its location, so it makes for a good place to meet. Parking usually isn't too much of an issue. Bagels are great and selections of sandwiches are very good

We stopped by for breakfast. There is a huge eating area and getting a table was not difficult even though they were fairly busy. The oatmeal 'pancakes' were more box-shaped but moist and tasty. I also had a bagel with cream cheese, two fried eggs and OJ. The price was quite reasonable. A short walk from the wonderful Charles Inn,... More

Went there today for lunch with husband and son after UMaine orientation, before heading back to Boston. Ordered whitefish salad on whole wheat bagel, they gave me tuna. I went up to the counter and they told me they didn't have whitefish so decided to give me tuna. I returned it because it was dark tuna and made me gag.... More
