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

Those who know my reviews know that I rarely give 4 stares and almost never give 5. Kettleman's is a good workmanlike bagel shop that is based on the so called Montreal still known as St. Viature's Bagel Shop. These are less bread and crunchy than the standard bagel or bialy. New Yorkers hate them, Montrealers love them and Ottawans... More

Simply the best of the best. The bagels here are the best in the Glebe and possibly in Ottawa. Very very cheap and very very delicious. I recommend to everyone and anyone, all ages. I absolutely love this place! You can watch the chefs make the bagels in the front and while you're waiting for your bagel to be prepared.... More

I absolutely love this place! You can watch the chefs make the bagels in the front. Try the Kettleman's special for lunch (~$8) which has cream cheese and smoked salmon or the breakfast bagel for breakfast (~$3-4) which has bacon, eggs and cheese on your choice of delicious, Montreal-style bagel. If you want some to take home you can pay... More

Went there very early to get bagels for family breakfast. It was very well priced (pay by the half dozen). Picked the sesame and chocolate types; very good. We also tried their potato pastries, but they were average to our taste. The bagels lasted up to three days, which is very good compared to other fresh bagel places. The store... More
