Located on the outskirts of downtown Bangor, Wicked Brew Cafe is an art-filled coffee shop complete with eclectic furniture and a relaxed ambiance, perfect for anyone looking to drink a cup of coffee or have a bite to eat while doing work or jumpstarting your day.

Upon walking into Wicked Brew Cafe for the first time you can expect to be greeted with a creative interior design that emanates a peaceful vibe. The dark but colorful scheme of the cafe is tied together with a balance of local paintings and art covering the walls, as well as tall dark ceilings that are enhanced with fairy lights. The seating in the cafe is made of antique-style couches and chairs in addition to a few traditional tables. The atmosphere is tied together with quiet music making it an ideal place to focus by yourself or catch up with friends.

People of various ages seemed to enjoy spending time here, making it a good spot for anyone looking to escape some of the college hot spots that can sometimes be overwhelming. The cafe seems to draw in a more quiet crowd rather than families or small children due to the quiet nature of the cafe.

Wicked Brew Cafe has a wide selection of food to choose from, ranging from pastries and breakfast sandwiches to several lunch options. Their portion sizes are generous and they have a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, including a vegan breakfast sandwich that is completed with red hummus and avocado.

Proving themselves to be a great place to go for coffee lovers who like to have options, Wicked Brew Cafe also has a variety of both unique and common flavors to add to any coffee of your choice.
