I was greeted by a friendly face and placed my order waited a few minutes and the breakfast sandwich I ordered was ready in no time. I have been here several times in the past and enjoyed pastries, especially... 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

We stumbled upon this place while wandering around downtown, and I'm so happy we went in for a quick bite! The prices are very reasonable and the choice of bagels is just amazing. It's self-service, you order at the counter and they'll call out your order number for you to pick up once it's ready. The place is big and... More

One of my favorite breakfast spots. Can get crowded on the weekends, making service slow. However, it's well worth any wait! You have to try the vegetable cream cheese!
