There is a great debate in Montreal as to whether St-Viateur or Fairmont makes the best bagels, and then whether those bagels are better than the ones found in New York City. Fairmont makes very good bagels and offers them in a no-frills, hurry up...More

It's been 30 years since I visited here last and the bagels are still wonderful: just enough crustiness, not doughy, slight hint of honey. So, so good! These are the real deals! If there's a lineup it just confirms how much people love these bagels....More

I didn’t really care for these bagels and didn’t understand what the hype was about. Their employee seemed irritated and annoyed when serving us as we asked a few questions.

As a New Yorker I had to find out what all this talk was about the Montreal Bagels. They are a delightful bagel. It wouldn't be fair to compare them to New York Bagels, they are different. They don't sell much other than bagels so...More

The original family of this bagel years ago re bought the building and fired up the ovens. The bagels are great but they do not take care and many of the bagels or all crooked or square.
