  • Scratch Baking company has the best bagels in the North East. Im from NJ where a bagel is more then a piece of bread. Its a piece of heaven. And the sea salted bagel at Scratch is God's gift! Lol
  • Get here early, before its all gone. I highly recommend the plain croissants and all the bagel varieties. But warning: There's no seating, so grab your goodies and go.
  • Don't go in the afternoon for bagels, they will probably be gone :(
  • The bagels are extraordinary, especially the salt. Other favorites are the cinnamon buns and the shortbread.
  • Best bagel Ive ever had! Before I went a bagel was a bagel. Not here, its an experience! Try to get there early while warm and fresh. And try the herb cream cheese!
  • Homemade strawberry pop-tarts are my everything!
  • Known for their bagels but everything we tried was good. Enormous cinnamon rolls. Quiche. Breakfast sandwich. Cant go wrong.
  • Those bagels tho
  • Best bagels in the Portland Area without question.
  • I have family from NJ that come up all the time and rave about their bagels. The line should move faster this summer with the new baking location.
  • Bagels are wonderfully crispy on the outside and light, chewy on the inside.
  • If you are vegetarian the options are amazing and definitely try the Reuben if they still have it
  • Best bagel EVER!
  • Easily the best bagels I've ever consumed
  • If you want to get a bagel on the weekend, get here before 8:30am.
  • Bagels & muffins
  • Sea salt bagel with herb cream cheese.
  • Best bagel of my life (Maine sea salt with herb cream cheese). But everything is fantastic really. Raspberry muffin and maple scone
  • Best bakery in the world. Bagel madness!
  • Get there early for awesome bagels. If they're out, a pastry will do.
