I was disappointed that they only had sesame bagels (I went too early in the day for any of the other bagels to be made yet) but I was glad that I was able to get bagels fresh out of the oven. The paper bag they were put in literally got so hot (from the steam/heat of the freshly cooked... More

I was 5 years old (62 years ago) when I had my first bagel, It is still in the same location, and by far the best bagel in the city.That is all they do at this location, the original location, make bagels by hand in a wood burning oven, the bagels being placed on a wooden stick and carefully and...

He grew up in Montreal and said these bagels were the best ever. Even better than bagels from NYC. I travel to NYC often for business and think that bagels outside of NYC are just not as good. But I was wrong. These are the best bagels I've ever had. Especially when you get them right out of the oven.... More

What a fun stop! The neighborhood is cool, watching the bagels being cooked is fun, and the product is delicious. A hot bagel right off the line is a treat.

Montreal bagels are known for being thin, dense and sweet. St Viateur bagels are known for being so delicious you eat them plain, untoasted, out of the bag as you're leaving the shop. Add to the fact they're open 24/7 and situated in the excellent Mile End neighbourhood, and these bagels are a destination in themselves.

This place has literally not changed since I grew up in Montreal. I have tasted bagels all around the world, and sorry New York, Montreal is King at bagel making. Never will you walk in a place where 24/7 bagels are rolling down to you fresh and hot as they always should be! For anyone who has not experienced this,... More

Ask for a bagel hot. The sesame ones were just made when I was there. There are spreads in the cooler or eat them plain. I took flax bagels home. Spent some time watching the process and taking pictures as they were making them. I heard they are dipped in honey water. There was a steady stream of clients.

The sesame and the "fully dressed" everything were both delicious, and the whole grain was, too. The insides had plenty of heft and texture without being too chewy or dense. They were still warm, both times we tried them.

Every guide mentioned this place but then you have to wonder when some of the guides also mention Dunkin Donuts! The people at the counter were unbelievably rude when we ordered from the wrong register, like we would know the difference. The babels were nothing to write home about. We have great bagels in Chicago, the best bagels are from... More
