BANGOR - Come the end of November, Whoopie Pie Cafe will be open for business at 347 Wilson Street across from the Brewer City Pool with a full menu featuring salads, soups, pasta and signature massive sandwiches, along with a tremendous list of whoopie pie flavors.

"When first starting the cafe in 2012, I didn't realize how popular my whoopie pies would be," said James Gallagher, 27, owner of Whoopie Pie Cafe on Hammond Street in Bangor, "but now three years later we have over 30 flavors of the official Maine State Treat (whoopie pies) and [are] getting ready to open our second location.'

The new location in Brewer will have the same retro feel but allow for more seated guests and features a fireplace and larger dining area. At age 24, Gallagher established the storefront at 621 Hammond St. in Bangor. Whipping up only four flavors and experimenting with flavor combinations, the menu has grown to over 30 flavors.

Whoopie Pie Cafe specializes in the official Maine State Treat according to Gallagher's family recipe.

"The chocolate cake with almond filling (Black Tie) was passed down from my Great Grandmother," said Gallagher.

The list of whoopie pie flavors includes award-winning Dark Seas (dark chocolate cake with caramel sea salt filling), Luscious Lemon (vanilla cake with lemon filling) and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake with cream cheese filling.

"Our most popular is the Plain Jane (chocolate cake with vanilla filling)," said Gallagher. "People just love the original."

His favorite is the Blazin' Britt, which is melted cheddar, buffalo chicken and jalapenos, grilled on the panini press.

"You won't find the same old sandwiches," said Gallagher. "The full sandwiches are about the size of a dinner plate."

Whoopie Pie Cafe hit the road this summer. You may have seen them at various events around Maine. They started the summer at the annual Maine Whoopie Pie Festival, Bangor State Fair, American Folk Festival and the Blue Hill Fair.

"It was great meeting so many lovers of the whoopie [pie]," said Gallagher.

Young and enthusiastic, Gallagher is a Bangor native and attended high school and United Technology Center's Culinary Arts program. "UTC's program kept me interested in high school and looking back taught me so much," he said.

The Whoopie Pie Cafe is open now at 621 Hammond St. in Bangor, Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. -7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and soon to be Wilson Street in Brewer. To keep up with Whoopie Pie Cafe, visit or call (207) 947-6222.
