Bagel Heaven!

I've been having too New York bagels my whole life and I can say without a doubt that these compete with the best. Hot out of the oven, crunchy exterior, very chewy and dense and a little sweet. They are different from New York but just as good as the very best and well worth a special stop.

Bagels are delicious, large and affordable. We bought 2 dozens of large fresh bagels for $18. On the minus side, the line up is disorganized inside and they only gave a small plastic bag that barely fit the 12 bagels that we purchased. Still remain a place that we visit each time we are in Montreal.

Montreal has some great places that are unique. I have an old friend who used to travel hundreds of miles to his barber who he said was the absolute best in the world. Occasionally he would return with some bagels from Saint viateur . Dropped in recently to see the place myself. Arrived early and there were no lines but... More

A must visit for anyone who visits Montreal. I recommend trying bagels with cream cheese or salmon cream cheese.

We were told by a waiter in a local restaurant that we had to try St. Viateur Bagels. He told us they were the best bagels and that they actually trucked them fresh to New York every day. I have no idea if that's true but they were definitely not the best bagels I've ever had and having had New... More

The sesame bagel is the best I have ever had. I loved watching them make the bagels and wish I had brought a big bag full of bagels to take home with me.

With our favorite pastry shop closed for a summer vacation, we had to resort to a back-up, and I'm gad we did. While this bagel shop won't win you over with deluxe sandwiches or decadent treats, they do basically define the style of a Montreal bagel. The bagels are hand-made, wood-fired, and flavorful. Don't waste your time on ordinary --... More

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.
