I usually stop by Bagel Central when I am in the Bangor Area. They have a ton of different, unique flavors of bagels, along with the classics. They also have delicious cream cheese flavors.

First stumbled upon this gem on my honeymoon over 30 years ago and fell in love with the place. It's greatly expanded over the years and appears to be better than ever. Outstanding everything here! Bagels are amazing. Great menu and sweets to die for! Love the enthusiasm of the staff! Can't wait to come back!

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
