“simply the best bagels period”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

this is an old store located in the outremount district in Montreal. I have been going to this place since I was a young kid and love it. No matter what time of day, you'll always find fresh hot bagels. Now if they could only bring back the 'old fashion cream cheese'

“Really, does it get any better than a fresh Montreal bagel?”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The variety is heavenly, so many choices, plain, sesame, cinnamon and raisin, all dressed and more.

A dozen is a must because you will never make it home with the original 12. The fresh from the oven smell of bagels could tempt anyone! Lock that scent in a car and everyone is tasting bagels. Montreal Bagels are chewy and delicious and pure heaven.

This is a landmark for a reason!! Enjoy, 5 mmm's out of 5

“Tasty hand rolled bagels”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Although these bagels were a bit smaller than what I'm used to back in NY they had great flavor. It was really cool walking into the place and being able to see the bagels being hand rolled then placed in the oven in a unique manner (a strait line of 20 bagels placed next to a flame). Would definitely recommend going here if you are in
Montreal.

“Best Bagels, just as good as Fairmont.”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Both St Viater and Fairmont makes best bagels in Montreal.

Assuming, you are buying them directly, (they both are open 24/7) you will always get them hot, and right out the oven.

Enjoy your bagel with smoked salmon, tomato, and capers.

“Best bagels in Montreal”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

St-Viateur is a great place for both foodies and common tourists since it represents the self-made Montreal style bagels excellently. The food is simply good but the service definitely calls for improvements. Really crowded during weekends and you can often see people waiting outside.
