Went to Bagel Central on a Monday morning for late breakfast/early lunch around 11:30am. It was crowded but we were still served quickly. All staff we interacted with were super friendly. We had a couple of everything bagels with cream cheese (my husband gets lox and capers, etc. too). They were delicious though non-traditional. We're used to that chewy NY... More

I've been a bagel central regular for a couple years now. Today my takeout order was incorrect and I called and they had the corrected meal plus a bag of goodies as an apology gift ready for when I got there! They really went above and beyond. This is an excellent place to stop in for breakfast, get a delicious... More

I have traveled to NYC and Philadelphia on numerous occasions, which are both known for their fantastic bagels. .I was impressed with how good the bagels were at Bagel Central. The workers were very friendly and personable. They would get an excellent from me!

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

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
