A NY Bagel Fan Until Now....

I grew up in NY though I have not lived there since I was 18. I have always been a huge fan of NY bagels though, always considered them the very best. Until today, maybe.... Came here to St. Viateur Bagels where they roll them by hand, boil them in honey and then bake them in a wood fired... read more

Really, this is supposedly the best Montreal can do? If you like your bagels tough, neither crispy nor doughy, and lacking much flavor, these are great. They're okay when hot like any bread tends to be, but they don't make Montreal a bagel Mecca.

Having lived in Montreal for 3 years, I did my fair share of dining out, exploring, and experiencing the city... St-Viateur bagels are one of those "only in Montreal" things that I still miss... the bagels are less dense than your stereotypical bagel... and are AMAZING warm, right off the line, even without any butter/cream cheese... They freeze well (I... More

Despite the reputation of the shop, I was not fond of their bagels, way too dry for me. Cinnamon and raisins is good though. It's worth giving a try if you add salmon tarama or tzatziki on top.

As a lifelong New Yorker, I never thought it would happen. A better bagel than New York City. But, yes, its true, A little sweeter and less doughy and a bit smaller. But about 2/3 the cost. I could stop eating them and unlike NYB's they were just as tasty the next day. And I brought home a dozen and... More

Great bagels. Authentic wooden oven baked right in front of your eyes. Whether you order one or a dozen, they are always served hot and fresh. Great tasting and worth the try!

It was a rainy day on montreal. We decided to try the famous montreal style bagel on this small shop. There's no chair or table and you just grab the things you want on your bagel. We took them to eat later. They're taste amazing.

It's not really about just the bagels - although my son who lives in San Jose will make pilgrimages here every time he visits - it's about the smell of fresh baked bagels - and the delight of taking one hot out of the oven and popping it in your mouth. I'd consider a visit to Montreal that didn't include... More

Whether you want lazy weekend day's brunch or busy week day's breakfast, St-Viateur Bagel won't let you down. I love having its bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese for brunch after busy week!

If you like bagels, you must come to the mecca. This is the home of the original Montreal bagel. It is so different from "the" things we call bagels outside of New York or Montreal, that shouldn't carry the same name.

Staying in Outremont

Neighborhood Profile
Outremont
Outremont, a quaint residential district just north of Downtown, is a peaceful, low-key setting known for its mod cafes and bistros, and some of the best walking territory Montreal has to offer. Visitors can explore the flowering parks and manor estates of Maplewood Street, then window-shop the popular bakeries and coffeehouses on main arteries of Chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine and Rue Van Horne. The modern granola feel is complemented by contemporary art exhibitions, rotating theater productions, and a welcoming public library. Also a nexus for the city's Hasidic Jewish culture, Outremont's diversity resounds in its cuisine and in its architecture. Visit the colorful neighborhood to take advantage of boutique shopping on Avenue Laurier, or to test the artisanal flavors of Avenue Bernard, braving a salmon burger on a squid-ink bun or accommodating your sweet tooth with a provincial chômeur pudding. A visit to Outremont is a relaxing day.
