You have to taste this. It's amazing. I've had the traditional with salmon and cream cheese, tomatoes and capers. You can also add a salad of your choice. Fairly cheap and in a relaxing atmosphere. Probably the best place for a bagel.

This place makes excellent bagels. not just any bagels but brick oven bagels. I got one of the batch that just got out of the oven. It was sesame and soft and warm. The owner was very engaging and tried to be funny. This place is worth going to. It is nicely priced at 70 cents compared to fairmount bagels... More

I like St.Viateur bagel, but it's not as good as Fairmount Bagels. The bagels are thin, not thick. There weren't many kinds of bagels to choose from.

Québécois friends told us not to miss these bagels, so we didn't - but we don't understand the passion these bagels inspire in some. They are small & somewhat dry. You can taste a hint of the honey water, but that doesn't overcome the unappealing texture & taste. After trying a disappointing toasted bagel from St. Viateur's food truck near... More

We always make it a point to stop at St-Vateur Bagel on the way home from Montreal. On this trip we bought 4 dozen bagels. Some for us and some for our mothers back home. Not only are the bagels the best bagels anywhere, cooked fresh, but the people at St-Viateur Bagel are the friendliest people you will ever meet.... More

My Quebecois friend enjoyed her bagels. It was just average for me. Although I appreciate good bread, the bagel experience didn't have the wow factor for me. I didn't grow up eating bagels so I didn't eat it with nostalgia. ;) The bagels were lukewarm and a tad heavy on the texture for me.

The smell overcomes you when stepping into this petit shop, leaving you eagerly anticipating the taste. And wow, just wow. The freshness and warmth of the sesame seed-covered bagels means that you'll keep wanting to eat more. Good stuff.

We went to St. Viateur after dinner and grabbed some bagels for breakfast. They were great bagels which were still soft the next morning. I'd definitely recommend grabbing a few if you're in the area.

We spent a week for a family vacation in Montreal and this was a great find. So great we ate there twice. The patio was a nice place to enjoy the first meal of the day. The wait staff was friendly and welcoming. We were delighted to see that they served creton which was a tradition of my Quebecois grandmother.... More

I brought home 4 dozens of the sesame seed bagel. It is the best bagel I ever had. I crave it now. I was checking the web site to see if any store would sell these bagel in Miami or in Ft. Lauderdade. If anybody knows where, please let me know. If I have to drive 3 hours to get... More
