Bangor to August: Sunday Brunch or Lunch Options

Hey all,

We'll be in the Bangor -> August area on Sunday, are are looking for a great/interesting lunch spot. House-made bread, locavore ingredients are all qualities.

It looks like some of the cool institutions - Montes International Catering and Friar's Bakehouse - seem closed on Sundays. Sadly, Montes looks like it's closing for good soon.

And... we're not looking for enormous portions -- portion size is less important that cool, interesting and local concoctions. Average price (6-12pp) is good - not looking for high-end places.

From the locals -- what are the other options?

  1. If you're looking for somewhere between the two points (Bangor-Augusta)...
    consider Riverside Market in Oakland (just off I-95 Waterville).

    Just a few minutes further south of Augusta is Slates in Hallowell.

        Yep, I saw that thread... which prompted me to ask -- most of those places (Frair's, etc) are closed on Sunday :o(


      2. You could always go to Bagel Central on Central St in downtown Bangor - a perennial favorite for Sunday morning breakfast/brunch/lunch. They're open til 3, and they do have homemade bread, bagels and other treats. It's definitely a Bangor institution.

        1. Big G's in Winslow, route 201. All homemade breads and pastries.
          Big G's was featured in the November 2005 issue of Down East Magazine as one of "150 Reasons to Give Thanks We Live in Maine".
