Yum!

A regular stop for us. The fresh bagels are so good that it's spoiled us for many other kinds. The Reubens are delicious! Heads up: it's cash only. There's an ATM but it charges a $$$ fee.

By far the best bagels in town. Well worth the drive from any part of the city. Baked fresh all day long. Bring home a dozen as you'll have half of them eaten by the time you get home :-)

We always get our bagels here - they are on par with the best in Montreal. It's all done the way they are supposed to be, and right in front of your eyes. Always open, it seems no matter when we stop in, our bagels are still toasty warm and fragrant. For us, it's sesame seed all the way, but... More

a lot of people line up to buy bagel, they are very fresh, make it right there. I got the combo with a potato latke, but sound like the oil it use has problem, when I show to them, look like they just buy it and just reheat it in oven. They said that normally they will not taste it... More

My absolute favourite bagel on earth and I am a bagel connoisseur. A little bit obsessed - never disappoints! Try their bagel sandwiches and the unique cream cheeses!

I work in the area and eat here on my lunch break often. It's the best quick service option in the area by far. I've tried many of the bagel sandwich options and all are tasty and fresh. Service is quick and efficient and they keep the store very clean. My only negative comment is that for the price it's... More

If you are early or lucky enough to get the Lemon Cranberry bagels - You are one happy foodie! These bagels, hand rolled and made from scratch are simply the best and do rival any that I've enjoyed in Montreal or NYC for that matter. If there are bagel competitions Kettleman'a should enter! They're winners.

Access to Montreal Bagels in Ontario! This is a great and quaint location for 24-hours food. You can sit and grab a bite to eat. Watching how bagels are made is always fun. They are so successful, construction is underway for their expansion. Meals aren't only bagels and cream cheese. There are locks and a variety of meats available as... More

If you want to see how bagels are made, this is the place to go. Located in the Glebe, this place won't jump out at you, but you should walk in anyway. They've recently renovated the building and it looks great. It really is a gem. Honestly, if I were to write only about the bagels it would take me... More
