BANGOR, Maine — Geaghan’s Pub has been known for serving hearty breakfasts over the years.

Come the end of September, that will no longer be the case, as the Queen City pub and brewery has made the decision to stop serving breakfast, effective Oct. 1, owners announced Monday.

“A tradition that started 40 years ago will come to an end the last day of September,” read a statement from owner Larry Geaghan.

Geaghan noted it was not an easy decision to stop serving breakfast at the pub.

“We have always striven to provide a homemade experience, with my brothers Peter, Pat and I rotating coming in at 3 a.m. every morning to prep for the day and make fresh breads and breakfast pastries,” Geaghan said. “Unfortunately, the breakfast culture has changed; people want fast food on the go, and we are not getting any younger.”

“Moving forward, the decision was a difficult one, as the company is changing how they’ve always done things,” Geaghan added.

Starting Oct. 1, the pub will open for business at 11 a.m. seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
