always great service - lovely fresh bagels - every time we're in ottawa, this is a MUST place to go - small parking, but well worth the effort

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....

This place is awful. Service is slow and lackluster, the choices look.good on the board for breakfast, but in the end nothing has flavor except the bagels. Do not bother eating in its a waste of.money. if you buy bagels to ho that's great, DO NOT eat in...it's a rip off. The place is dirty and chairs wobbly and the... More

My favourite go-to for a quick snack. Small Montreal-style bagel shop where they make the bagels right in front of you. To guarantee freshness, ask for "those bagels" and point to the stuff that's steaming hot- usually works. Great variety of cream cheeses with various flavours (hot pepper is my fave). If the food wasn't so good I would give... More

OK so I'm not the type to complain but when I see a rip off rubbed in my face with a smile, it just make me boil from the inside, apparently to add tomatoes at KittLeman's bagels which are two small slices of tomatoes cost a $1.00 add to that a 0.50 cent and you could get a meat pie... More

The sweet, smoky aroma of Montreal-style bagels baked in a wood-burning fire has infused Ottawa’s Glebe neighborhood for more than 20 years. Poached in honey water and covered in sesame or poppy seeds, then smeared with a selection of cream cheeses (including a non-dairy option), or holding together delicious smoked salmon, chopped liver or Reuben sandwiches, Kettleman’s bagels always deliver...

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.
