My first visit to this popular Bagel joint. Recently renovated with cool decor, and a clear view of the hand made bagel process. From twisting the dough, t baking in the wood fired oven, the place has a cool vibe and delicious bagels. Bring cash as this is the only payment method accepted.

Went to check out Kettleman's last Sat.July 2nd a little after 2pm. A group of 4 of us ordered various items. We were all pretty satisfied with our food. I had a poppyseed bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese...it was delicious! (found it a little strange how the poppyseeds were all accumulated just on the edge of the bagel). I... More

We lived in Montreal for many years, and know their best bagel places well. So it was a very pleasant surprise to find out that you can get equally good bagels here in Ottawa

I've been buying bagels here for years and years. Not as often as I would like, since I don't live near either of the two locations that I know (Bank St downtown near Landsdowne) or Woodroffe at Richmond. I dropped in the Woodroffe store this week to get a turkey on the new jalapeno cheddar bagel for lunch. Awesome. Picked... More

Amazing bagels. An impressive range of flavors. Watching them flip the bagels out of the oven while you wait in line is always a treat.

Kettleman's bagels are by far the best in Ottawa, and can be bought either as sandwiches or for you to make later. There is lots of variety, and options for everyone! It is also open 24h pretty much every day of the year, which is great and very convenient.

We went to Kettleman's for breakfast during our visit to Ottawa and got a bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese filling and it was amazing! The price is a little high but the bagels are fresh and they put alot of filling in each bagel. The new dine in area is very nice. They have a few parking spots available... More

Best bagels you will ever eat. This cafe is open 24hper day every day of the year. There are so many to choose from, I never realized. Also there are other bakery items as well and would recommend the chocolate twist which apparently is a Jewish treat. The restaurant only takes cash but there is a cash machine on site.... More
