Description: Friars' Bakehouse is a small bakery smack in the downtown of Bangor, Maine. It is operated by the Franciscan Brothers of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. The baking brother is a master at his craft. Due to the fact that the establishment has only one baker and all of the baked goods are artisan, you will not find the variety that is available at larger thaw and bake bakeries. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 8:30 a. m. until 2:00 p. m. When the shop is closed, Friars' breads are available at the Fairmount Market on Hammond St.Friars' Brewhouse is a adjunct to but, separate from the bakery. The baker has branched out and is now creating artisan beers in the same manner that he creates breads and pastries. The actual Brewhouse is located on the 34 acre grounds of St. Elizabeth Monastery perched on the side of Orcutt Mountain in lovely Bucksport, Maine. NO BEER IS SOLD OUT OF THE FRIARS' BAKEHOUSE! We have teamed up with Bangor Wine and Cheese Co. on Hammond Street. All of our fine brews are available there on a regular basis. Stop in at the Bangor Wine and Cheese an say, "Hello!" to Eric and Christine.

Perfect scones and good coffee, a gem in Bangor. The soup smelled good. Simple, hearty food, made just right. Loved the creepy-beautiful religious décor.

You must try Friar's Bakehouse! Great food, good atmosphere and friendly people! They make their food, fresh daily from what I can see. I went at lunch time with a friend, a very busy place and small but worth the time. I enjoyed talking to Brother Ken. I had a really good and well portioned lobster roll. For desert I enjoyed another fresh made product the whoopie pie, (Maine thing). In conjunction with fellow reviewer’s my thanks as well to the Brother's for their great food and what they bring to the Bangor community.

Friars Bakehouse is one of my favorite stops while visiting Bangor. The brothers are warm and friendly and the food is heavenly-macaroons are gluten free and are delicious with a cup of coffee. I have never had a bad meal and it is first on my list when in Maine!
