well worth the trip

Better than any Toronto bagels and the equal of Montreal's best.You can get a nice sandwich there as well but it is the bagels that make them so good.

The place is currently under renovation and a bit messy, but the bagels are still coming out delicious and in multiple varieties. I tried and a Kettleman's special with salmon tomato cucumber and some small olives and was very satisfied. I

These are simply the best bagels in the city. It's a classic bagel shop .... Busy and great for watching the bagels being rolled, placed in the wood oven and then brought out. Definitely worth a visit if you're hungry and on the go. Stock up while you're there!

This Kettleman's Bagel Shop is conveniently located on Bank Street, near TD Place. The place is small, has average aesthetics, and a paltry parking lot...yet is often full of patrons. The reason

Kettleman's is a must-do in Ottawa. They make Montreal style bagels right in front of you with a huge wood fired oven. Watch them cut, roll and bake a large variety of bagels. They also make their own cream cheese and pastries. Their bagel sandwiches are amazing. I don't think I've had one I did not like. Their breakfast sandwich... More

I like this place because the service is really speedy and the environment very comfortable. It's nice to be able to pay and instead of waiting standing up for your order, you take a numbered sign to your table and they bring your order out to you. They have lounge type chairs. The place is big enough so there's always... More

If you're looking for great bagels & spreads, this is your place. Just don't come in for the atmosphere! Get your delicious treats and leave. It's a mish-mash of customers here, and it looks like a bagel sweat shop, but talk about great tasting bagels! Watching the bagels being prepared is one of the best parts of visiting this place....
