“This is a simple review...”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Buy half a dozen fresh steaming hot sesame bagels. Take one.
Tear it apart and pop a piece in your mouth. Savour it...
Crisp on the outside, moist and steaming on the inside.
Food shouldn't taste this good.
Eating this will make you happy you're alive.

“THE best bagels in the world”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

If you go to Montreal, there are two things you must get: bagels and smoked meat.
Fairmount bagels is where to get bagels. Period. Not St. Viateur... Fairmount. Go in line (earlier in the morning there is no line really) and get yourself at least a dozen of their delicious and affordable sesame bagels.

You'll know where it is if you are walking or driving with the windows down... it's where the fire smell is coming from. This is the real deal!

“Not to be missed! Best bagels ever!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

I travel to Montréal frequently and have eaten these bagels for the last 15 years!
They are hands down, the absolute best bagels ever!

They're made in front of you, fresh and hot in many different flavours. My personal favorites are the sesame, everything and caraway. So delicious with some liberté cream cheese and smoked salmon!
Def not to be missed.
Take out only as this is not a café, be sure to take home several dozen *they freeze well! You'll thank me later! :)

“Disappointed at first”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

they make their bagels fresh the old fashion way and you can taste the smokey flavor in each bite however the bagel is better enjoyed at home. I walked in and they have all these ingredients for sale but you can't get them on your bagel they also don't toast your bagel for you either and they didn't have butter. My main problem is that you can't walk in and get a bagel to eat on the way you need to pick it up take it home to really enjoy them. So bagels themselves are real good when toasted with butter or cream cheese salmon at home

“Montreal bagels? Oi!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

A small bagel shop, no seating, but lived up to its reputation as the place to go for good Montreal bagels. The hot out of the oven sesame bagels are the best choice - melt in your mouth goodness! Pair with some cream cheese or even with some tasty smoked salmon... yum!
