“Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Fairmount Bagels are hyped by nearly everyone in Montreal. Usually when something is over-hyped it is a disappointment. Not here. These bagels are the bomb. Fresh, amazing, unique, you have to try these if you are in town you will love them. I usually start eating them plain right out of the bag, fresh from the oven, yum yum.

“Best Bagels in Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Every time my family and I are in the area, we cannot help but stop at Fairmont. Bagels are extremely fresh and new ones are made directly behind the cashier. It is an EXTREMELY TINY store (as in only 5 people can fit lol) but that's what gives it its charm. Just be careful because last time I was there, they didn't take credit cards, so make sure you have cash on you!

“Ah man!!!! Gimme those hot bagels any day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I buy a dozen and start chomping on them on my way out. Then I find a bench along the street and "we eat" our heart's delight. No need for cream cheese, these bagels are delicious!!!! I take all my visitors there for a sidewalk treat.

“Good things don't change”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I've always preferred Fairmount to other bagel places in Montreal. This is not to say that the other places are bad, I just prefer Fairmount. When I lived close by I would frequent the shop at least once a week, whether to get a bagel or several. I bring my sister a bag when I visit her in Toronto and they'll be gone in a couple of days. It freezes well and overall consistent in the texture and taste, it really hasn't changed over the years which is a good thing. I like it very much.
