Kettleman's on Bank St. has some of the best "montreal style" bagles anywhere on the planet! Fired in a wood oven, these can't be beat if they are steaming hot with deli cream cheese. Mmmm. They also make a decent sandwich here if you are so inclined. Smoked Meat or Rubin are two of my favourites. Did I mention they... More

These bagels are absolutely delicious and they have just about whatever you are craving. Good selection of drinks as well and other snacks but the best are the sandwiches, BLT's with a sesame bagel are amazing. All the dough is right there in front of you and you can watch the staff make the bagels fresh. It's crazy to go... More

Open 24 hours. The best bagels I have ever had and they have so many different kinds. Good cream cheeses too. You can get your bagels as sandwiches as well. Cash only but they have an ATM on site. There is always a line up on the weekends, so get there early! You can also watch them make the bagels... More

I had not been in for years & years - I stopped by for a coffee and the wonderful smell of those wood fired bagels was too much to resist. The Manager / Cashier was spot on with making me feel at home & welcoming me back after an admittedly 10 year absence-- He showed me a freshly toasted sesame... More

Kettleman's has it going on. When you walk in the door you will witness the enticing smell and view the huge variety of freshly baked bagels emerging from the custom made ovens. Their selection of bagels is impressive! My daughter is Vegan and she loves their vegetarian bagel as it's served with spicy eggplant, swiss cheese and pesto sauce. She... More

What a cool place. Bagels are amazing! So fresh - made in front of you. Chicken and tuna salad are excellent. Also have a variety of other foods besides bagels. You need to eat here while visiting Ottawa! Awesome location in the Glebe!

I love this place! I used to go to the Glebe location 2-3 times per week but since moving, I only get there when I can. The atmosphere is great. Seems like an old fashion deli, with a newly renovated interior. The bagels are made fresh right in front of you. Try the combo 1. It's a Breakfast bagel (egg,... More

I ate at Kettleman's on Carling yesterday for lunch. The food was fine. My daughter had the Italian bagel which was good and I had the breakfast bagel. The restaurant was very dirty on the floors and walls etc. We were there when it was not busy, so I was surprised Kettleman's management didn't have a staff member sweeping. This... More

Montreal style bagels opposite Landsdowne Park. Nice and chewy and you can get them toasted. Eat with cream cheese!
