If you're from the NYC/PHL/DC area then you've had a good boiled bagel. But you've also waited in a horrendous line with rude people and bad service. Here, you'll get none of the nonsense but a baked (not boiled) bagel. They are very nice bagels and everything else they serve is excellent, but just know that going in, you aren't... More

Coffee is good, omlettes are OK. But the bagels are essentialyl chewy white bread in a circe. Maybe good by Maine standards, I couldn't say

I have eaten the bagels here since I was a little girl- literally, my mom used to bring them to me. The garlic bagels are absolutely delicious.

They have a unique Taste in choices. Anything from an average bagel, to decked out. My wife likes the Olive oil cream cheese the best!

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. This weekend I got an onion bagel--that actually had little diced onions falling off of the top of it. I also got the olive cream cheese,... More

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!

Then this is the place for you. Fresh and excellent variety. They are very generous with cream cheese and their sandwiches are yummy.

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
