Great place to purchase bagels. They are all made on the spot and they are opened 24 hours. This is an in and out place, you go in (when you aren't waiting in line to get in) order the bagels you want and your out with the variety and quantity that you want. Inside where you order is relatively small,... More

These bagels have history and have made history. I believe they were the first bagels in outer space! There's trivia that won't show up anywhere. A few years back, I introduced Fairmount bagels to my wife on a trip in Montreal. Now, every business trip, I'm not allowed back into my house without two dozen All Dressed Fairmount bagels. It's...

Where we stayed in Montreal was closer to St. V's Bagels but we MUCH preferred the bagels at Fairmount. Grabbed a dozen on the way out of town to take home, too. Don't miss this place when you are in Montreal!

We went there around 9 p.m. since it was only a short walk from our bus stop coming down from Mont Royal. Even though it was late, there was still constant customers going in and you can see the bakers hand rolling the bagels at the back. The sesame bagels were still warm when we got them and they were... More

We stopped over for breakfast and picked up a few fresh bagels. They melt in your mouth. Highly recommended.

The best place in Montreal to buy fresh bagels - as with the real thing, you need to eat them as you walk out the door or within the next hour or so. I start with an onion entrée, have the pumpernickel as main course and finish up with blueberry - all this while driving home, aided by an expresso... More

Montreal has quite a few very good Bagel places but bar none I personnaly believe this one is the best, the regular affluence you find there sure supports this. It's been reported that people even have these bagels flown in to Toronto and New York.

One of the two iconic Montreal bagel bakeries. Watch the goods being baked with long, oar shaped paddles (funny, the staff look Korean) and munch the tasty results by the bagful!

If you are a tourist and wish to understand how Montrealers live, you must go to Faimount Bagel around 10PM, have your hot bagel on the bench just beside the shop, and listen to the people around you, real Montrealers, bilinguals and enjoying living in the most exiting city in North Amerca... There is something special in this city, especially... More

Arguably the best bagel place in Montreal, the smell and age of the wood fired oven will keep you entertained while you decide which flavor you want!
