24 hour bagels

We come to this bakery every time we visit Montreal. The bagels are awesome. At this location on St. Viateur they are open 24 hours. This is not a restaurant. You get in the line, tell them which bagels you want, pay and then leave. They do have a cafe on Mont-Royal East where you can sit and... read more

One of the two classic Montreal bagel establishments, the other being Fairmount Bagels, dueling it out only a few blocks apart. Both places consist mainly of the bagel making floor and ovens; clients line up to make their orders to take out. There is no sit-down eating at either place. You are there to buy classic, fresh, Montreal bagels, that... More

We didn't actually have a chance to stop in at the shop on our recent trip to Montreal, however, our Aunt was kind enough to go grab some for us. I have never tasted a bagel so good before! So good that I am guarding them from my kids! LOL! My next trip to Montreal will include a stop here... More

Only good for take out. No seating. They were out of almost all bagels, we went late. The main location wasn't that impressive. I love bagels, but this wasn't as extraordinary as everyone said. I think it's just a historical place that has a cult following. I wouldn't go out of the way to be there. If it's close or... More

We went to this location thinking that it was the cafe where they served the bagel sandwiches. This location is where you can buy bagels in bulk and see how they are made. After asking the very friendly staff where we could go to get actual bagel sandwiches, we stayed for a minute to see how the bagels are made... More

Took the metro and then a very long walk! Try to find a bus to get you close. Teenagers said not worth the trip. Small shop, no tables to sit at, bagels were good.

A Montreal tradition, open 24/7. The locals LOVE it. (or HATE it, if they're fans of the Fairmount bagel, the local competition) I love the history, not as crazy about the bagel. Not a bad product in and of itself, just not quite what I expected. It's smaller than a NY bagel, with a slightly sweet taste from being boiled... More

Came with friends who had to experience this Montreal gem. Highlights were smiling and laughing staff who were more than happy to entertain my "tourist" friends. Amazing bagels. A must visit when touring Montreal.

Be sure to stop in and try a bagel. Very different from a New York style bagel. We were happy to see that the restaurant was featured at the airport, and we were happy to pick up a package to take home and eat for breakfast the next day.

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.
