this is an old fashioned Montreal-style open oven bagel joint - hot, inexpensive and tasty. Bagels literally out of the oven and into a bag! The line ups can be brutal and look out - they take ONLY cash, so bring some or expect to use the electronic teller conveniently located right there inside.

I usually stop by at Kettleman's on Bank St when I head over to Ottawa. I usually pick up a dozen sesame seed bagels (right out of their wood burning oven) along with a few toasted bagels and cream cheese for a snack on the ride back home. The place is a dump and the parking is terrible however it's... More

The place to buy bagels. Huge section of bagels as well as sandwiches. Their pretzels are delicious and come with a choice of mustard. If you love good quality bagels this is the place to go.

We have the pickiest eater daughter and there are only 2 places in town that she will eat at and one of them is Kettleman's. She loves the choice of bagels and cream cheese. It is also fun to see the staff making the bagels and the big machines behind the counter. It is great for adults too - there... More

I stopped here every morning around 6am before work and 4pm after work in Lansdowne Park... The bagels are baked to perfection in an open fire 'kiln' and not one ever disappointed. Good coffee too. And all for incredibly low prices. Highly recommended.

Every time I visit Ottawa my friends give me their lists so I can pick up bags of bagels and return home to Lindsay, ON with them. Honestly, they are so addictive. Seeing them cooking in the oven is exciting. Especially welcoming on a wet, rainy, or snowy day. I also pick up a Western bagel for take out. Hot,... More

The sesame bagels are good if you have them fresh or in a day or two. There was nothing outstanding about this business. It is cool to get to see bagels being made but these bagels are overpriced and not a great value. It may be convenient to drop in to pickup a meal or a single bagel or two.... More

Lots of fun to see the exposed production-line mechanical processes that cook, move, and produce the bagels. Always great tasting too! They will also make you a sandwich--they're not just a cool bakery. Sometimes there can be a big lineup though. Date attended is approximate (likely prior to options offered)

This is THE place to go for consistently yummy Montreal-style bagels in Ottawa! Fantastic selection of bagels done any way you like 'em with a terrific selection of cream cheeses & spreads to suit your fancy! The only complaint is the service...because it's such a great spot lots of other people often want to satisfy their bagel craving at the... More
