So Fairmount isnt a sit down place like some of the other local bagel shops, you can only do takeaway. That being said, the experience of walking home with a sack of still steaming and delicious smelling bagels is a challenge. You want to find a curb to sit on so you can munch on a few.

I come here often for the past 10 years and I have to say that they make the world's greatest bagels ! Always hot and fresh. We always eat a bunch of them in the car on our way back home !

I always bring out of towners here. I love the fact their fireplace has been burning non stop for decades. It's a little slice/hole of history.

I realized that I haven't had a bagel before until I came here. Be prepared to be crammed into the front room shoulder to shoulder next to pallets of bagels. SMOKED SALMON, PLAIN CREAM CHEESE. SESAME BAGEL. Simple. Delicious. Love. I should've brought an empty suitcase with me and filled it up to bring some home. Till next time, Fairmount.

Bagels were good, got sesame and garlic with cream cheese and salmon (your only options for toppings). The bagels have a hint of a sweet taste to them and were a good texture. We weren't prepared for the fact it didn't have any seating and the ordering area was tiny and crammed very quickly (unpleasant since we went there in... More

These are truly the best bagels around. I remember going there when I was a child living in Montreal. My father would take us there for fresh bagels. It has not changed and is still fabulous. The bagels are always fresh and the staff are always friendly. Loved going back there. Go early as it gets very busy.
