“But why .... ?”
Review of Montreal Bagels

Montreal Bagels
Ranked #14 of 36 Bakeries in Calgary
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 April 2018

Hi Folks,

I hit Montreal last week on Tuesday after the dentist, grabbed a half doz.
(two sesame and the rest plain)

Got them home and after reading all the reviews on line about how great they are I'm left wondering why? Yep, they are all handmade and wood fired, I'll give you that and it also will explain the sorta lame rise in them and some of the burnt marks on them.

What was really odd was they way they made the kitchen cupboard smell after I put them in there for more the next day. Maybe because a few were burnt a bit in a couple of places ..... it was just odd tho .......

They were OK, but yep they make em sweet .... but to be honest I've had better looking and tasting bagels from the Safeway downtown by MEC.

Not great but OK.

Cheers'
Dave

Yes, these are the best!! Places in Fernie could learn how to make a proper bagel like these folks do. And, get over it, you do need good cold hard cash here to buy your bagels.. Always fun to talk to the owners...

I ordered the lox smoked salmon bagel and it was the best I've had to date. Husband had the Montreal smoked meat and it was loaded with delicious-ness.

Don't expect a cafe as it is more a bakery, there js no coffee. They only make the two types of bagels but they are amazing. Good for a grab and go or if you want to purchase a dozen of these amazing bagels to take home.

I try and go here every time I am in Calgary and buy at least a dozen bagels to take home. There is, quite simply, nothing like them. Having lived in Ottawa for years, these are the bagels I grew up with. The smell alone is heavenly and it is easy to eat a fresh, warm bagel, in the car, on the way home, with no toppings whatsoever.

The place itself is small and very unassuming, and only takes cash, but it is well known and going there in the afternoon, you can risk not getting what you want as they are very popular.

A must-try!!

Cash only. A dozen for 10 bucks is a steal. Six white - sesame - and six black - poppy seed - and away I go reminiscing about growing up in Montreal and the St. Viateur street bagel heaven.
