We already wrote once about cheap lunches in Bangor, but with a dining scene as dynamic and ever-changing as Bangor’s most of that old list is now totally out of date. We thought it was time for an update — so here’s a new list of affordable places to eat, for you and your friends and family to enjoy on your next lunch date.
Frank’s Bake Shop, 199 State St.
About five blocks past Broadway on State Street is Frank’s, which longtime Bangor residents are probably already familiar with, but which newcomers might not know is a great spot to grab lunch. While it’s justifiably best known for its cakes, doughnuts, cookies and other baked goods, Frank’s also has a sandwich menu with items ranging from a $3.49 grilled cheese to a $7.95 turkey club wrap. The majority of lunch items are in the $5-$7 range, and there’s also a cooler full of packaged quiche slices, salads, entrees and other goodies. Frank’s recently added pizza on Fridays and Saturdays, with slices priced between $3.50 and $4.50. There’s a reason Frank’s has been around for more than 70 years: quality food at affordable prices.
