Bagels on the go

The bagels here were very good, as are any wood oven Montreal bagels! However, this is a takeaway only location. We ordered bagels and ate them as we walked back to the metro. If you're looking for a sit down place with coffee, I recommend St Viateur. If you want bagels on the go, or if you want to... read more

They say Montreal bagels are some of the best in the world, and I personally prefer MTL bagels to NYC bagels... Fairmount and St-Viateur bagels are the best of the best. It's a toss up as to who makes the better bagel; ask any Montrealer and they'll definitely have a preference, but not know why. For me, a fresh Fairmount... More

Best bagels in town. Love the variety they offer. If you want "doughier" bagels, go to the other place. But I like these ones. Open 24/7

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 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.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
