New Coffee Pot - Bangor

Will be taking a quick road trip to Bangor tomorrow. A friend mentioned all the "hoopla" in the paper about the Coffee Pot. I read some of the articles on line but was wondering if there is one specific "Coffee Pot" sandwich or whether all of their sandwiches are good. Is the sandwich called a "coffee pot"?
I don't get there very often and want to make my trip to the New Coffee Pot worthwhile.
Thanks for your help.

  1. get a regular super deluxe. the tuna, roast beef and turkey aren't the traditional coffee pot - the real one has salami and ham.

    1. I'm sorry, but I never liked the old Coffee Pot sandwiches and don't understand the fuss. I just don't like Maine "Italians". I'm just a recovering New Jersey boy, home of the true Italian sub.

        Have to agree, Keg but then again there are some Jersey roots in this transplant. I think it comes down to the roll.

          Agred, mushy roll and the crummy pickle slices and lunch meats.
          Google The Wicked Good Band's song "Eye-talian". A good laugh.

            Well we tried. We had such high hopes...but alas...they weren't that good. (The ride up was beautiful though. A gorgeous Maine day).
            I just don't understand why these places can't use a better quality of meat/cheese and roll? The only place I have found since moving to ME for a decent sub is Full Court Deli in Winthrop. They use Boar's Head meats and their rolls have a nice "crunch" to them when they are heated. Good quality products make all the difference in the world.

                  Well actually we tried to find the Finelli's that I thought was also in Bangor. It wasn't there. We do plan on taking a trip to Ellsworth though to try that pizza. We are DYING for decent pizza.

                  1. re: Buttercupmaine

                    The best pizza I've had in maine--and I kid you not--are the pier slices on Old Orchard Beach. Thin, foldable, a little crispy, and greasy...just like an NYC slice.

                The key is EXTRA BACON. It overcomes the other deficiencies, which you have described quite well. Trust me. 8>D

                Or you could get a Dagwood (at least in the Waterville area). Same ingredients, but in a pita. And remember, EXTRA BACON.
