I certainly don't understand any of the above questionable reviews. I ate Coffee Pots from this same kitchen for 30 years, and this sandwich was every bit as good!

Stopped to get 2 sandwiches. They had no problem making ithem my way. The bread tasted like it was baked an hour ago, fresh tasting. As well as the rest of the ingredients, it was just completely fresh. Great sandwich!

$7.50 usually gets you a sandwich with substance. There's good quality bread, lots of filling, etc. My namesake large Legacy had a single layer of cheap salami laid on top of (not inside of) a filling of bland American cheese, diced onions, and single lines of tomato and pepper. Bread was all air. Completely unsatisfying and not worthy of its... More

I have tried and tried again, finally have given up on this place, quality has gone down, they put 2 pieces of meat in a large sandwich, 1/2 a piece of meat on a bulky roll. Sad. Not even using solid white tuna. ask for extra pickles, no problem. there is an extra charge. they give you "6" pickles.. LOL.... More

I have been enjoying the Legacy Sandwich (formerly known as a "Coffee Pot" before that name was hijacked and trade marked by others) for over 30 years. The current owner is a natural and continues the friendly, neighborhood feel of the place.The sandwiches remain the same outrageously delicious subs they have always been. True, there is a high veggie to... More

Ok first I want to thank you for this! I walked in today my very first visit to this wonderful gem of Bangor! I drove up from Lewiston, I ordered 5 #1's, I must say I was NOT disappointed, as I was told by my sister that it was authentic to the coffee pot sandwich, I do have to say... More

This shop is on the site of a sandwich shop that was a Bangor institution and featured the Coffee Pot, a sub-type roll with meat, cheese, etc. I am 75 and I can remember picking up Coffee Pots beginning in the early 60's. They really hit the spot. A few years ago, the original place closed. Shortly, the Legacy shop... More
