Fresh bagels with different flavors and reasonable prices. Good try and eat when they are still fresh! I'm not a bagel person but can feel the difference of having the bagels boiled in honey water then stone baked. Taste better than conventional ones - much better than the mass production ones at supermarkets and more flavorful than those at Tim... More

While in Montreal I had to check out Fairmount bagels, after all it was the first bagel in space. The bagels are good, have a bit of a sweet taste. The sesame ones were fresh from the oven and still hot which was nice. I was disappointed you couldn't get some cream cheese or smoked salmon with the bagel, there... More

Absolutely delicious bagels. Definitely worth the trip to get some. Just be warned that they don't take credit cards.

The absolute best. Nothing beats walking down the street eating from a bag a fresh "just out of the oven " warm bagels under your arm.

I went here based on the recommendation of a friend. I'm from NY so I like to check out other bagel recommendations. I'm usually disappointed, but not this time. I like the smaller nature of the bagel and the crispy outside. I had the blueberry which was good, but the everything was clearly the better choice and fresher. Glad I... More

Pale imitations of New York's H&H bagels, these are sort of sweet, sort of chewy, but nothing extraordinary. Huge disappointment, but at least they had some substance, the St. Viateur bagels are even less impressive because they have no flavor or texture.

We'd heard of the great rivalry between Fairmount and St. Viateur bagel fans in Montreal. Having tried the latter on the last trip, we now went looking for the Fairmounts. Alas, this location is just a bakery: no toppings, no shmears, no coffee. We bought a few anyway, and ate them plain and cold. We were not impressed by these... More

I literally created this account to leave this review. I came to fairmount bagels two years ago and it was spectacular. People said this was the best bagel around and I said "ha! I am from New York! Unlikely!" And yet it was. The most beautiful everything bagel with fresh cream cheese and perfect smoked salmon. My friends and I... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
