Best bagels!

The best bagels I have ever had! They were hot and fresh, not to doughy. I was able to eat 2! On one sitting. I got the sesame bagel- toasted to perfection , and the blue berry.

I was skeptical, as I heard everyone saying Fairmount Bagels were better then New York bagels. I have always grown up to know that NYC has the best bagels...anywhere! All of that to say, fairmount Bagel lived up to their reputation. It was hands down the best bagel I have EVER had. They are opened 24hours/day, and ALWAYS have hot... More

Not a big & tasty NYC bagel but these have a good taste and you can easily have 2-3 in a sitting. The place is unassuming and probably looks the same way it did in the 1970's and it is open 24hrs. One word of caution, they only take cash but will gladly accept us$ on par! Of course they... More

Montreal is known for it's great bagels. A few doors away from the best ice cream (Kem Coba see other review) is this Montreal institution. Opened since 1919 and opened 24 hours a day, so anytime you are in the neighbourhood stop in for a hot, fresh bagel.

Open 24 hours a day, this is one of my favorite places to crash in after a night out with friends. The bagels are always nice and warm, and quality above all competition.

In the middle of the afternoon we went to this amazing bagel shop. Its a small shop and there's no tables or chairs. You just buy the bagels and the fillings (cream cheese, etc). We ate outside. We get bagels and pretzels. Both delicious.

Just down the street from Wilensky's is this other Montreal institution. Took home half a dozen various bagels. They did not disappoint, especially the everything bagel. Topped off with some fresh goat cheese this made an excellent breakfast meal. Wished I had a branch down the street from my place.

This is a tiny place off the beaten path which was a nice change. Worth the visit since we are from New York and we know good bagels. The currency change issue was exasperated here, as they did not recalculate for American money, but our fault for not changing our money ahead of time. The options are great, the different... More

I stumbled upon this bustling bagel shop after a 2 hour tour. The famous sesame bagels were small but delicious. Although, most people will need two to fill them up. There is no seating in the shop itself, there are many benches nearby which are good for the nice weather. The reason I took a star off was the cream... More

Get the bagels straight out of the wood burning oven, different flavors and don't forget the cream cheese and smoked salmon

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.
