A gourmet burger takeout joint is opening in a former garage on Broadway in Bangor


A former automotive garage on Broadway in Bangor will soon be the home of a new takeout restaurant specializing in gourmet burgers and milkshakes.

Shakes & Bakes Takeout, set to open later this month at 599 Broadway, will offer smash-style burgers with an array of both classic and nontraditional toppings, alongside fresh fries, hot dogs and other diner-style favorites.

Owner Rob Baker formerly owned Broadway Citgo, a gas station and garage at 599 Broadway.

He closed the Broadway garage a few years ago, moved his business to Brewer and renovated his Bangor building into two commercial spaces, one of which now houses Broadway Cannabis, a medical marijuana dispensary that opened last fall. The other space houses Shakes & Bakes.

Baker’s niece, Nicole Dow, will run Shakes & Bakes. An Old Town native, Dow most recently worked at one of her family’s other businesses, Dow’s General Store in Albion, where she started its popular breakfast and lunch counter, offering everything from cold salads and baked goods to daily specials like mac and cheese, pulled pork, chowders and chilis.

Dow said she loves to cook and learned a lot from the experience of running a lunch counter that she will bring to Shakes & Bakes.
