St Viateur Bagel
Judge "Montréal's best bagels" for yourself
Noteworthy for: This famous bagel shop serves up the good stuff round-the-clock.
Talk of the town: The debate between whether St Viateur or Fairmount Bagels makes better bagels still rages today. Obviously, the best thing to do is to try both and deduce your own verdict.
Don't leave Montréal without tasting one of its famous bagels, which rival New York's for being the world's best. The Montréal-style bagel differs from the US-style in that it is smaller and denser, with a sweeter taste from the use of egg and honey.
St Viateur is one of two famous bagel shops located in Mile End, the city's principal Jewish settlement until the 1950s. The other is Fairmount Bagels, at 74 Ave Fairmount Ouest. Grab your bagel to go from St Viateur's Mile End bakery, where fresh treats are piled high beside the oven, or enjoy a leisurely, specialty-bagel brunch at the bakery's cafe at 1127 Mont-Royal Ouest.
