Ambience: In-and-out, bakery, pick-up
Why: A passed down recipe and contender of the NYC title for best bagles
Must-have: Sesame bagel with an à côté
Tip: Always ask for the next fresh batch

Montreal is known for its amazing bagels. Some might even say they’re arguably the best. New-Yorkers on the other hand wouldn’t agree. The truth is that they’re simply different. Montreal has a history of bagel making that is very unique: our bagels are crispier, sweeter, hand-rolled, and wood-fire baked. St-Viateur is your best chance at experiencing that difference. Using an eastern-European recipe brought forth 50 years ago, St-Viateur’s delightful freshly baked bagels are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in a very pleasant and lively neighbourhood called Mile End. St-Viateur Bagel Shop also holds a variety of bagels from sesame to poppy seed, to plain. Even if their special delight is more than sufficient to eat on its own, the shop has several accompaniments to help complement the experience. A wide variety of dips, cream cheeses, and smoked salmon are offered along with other appropriate items. Whether its for a late snack after a long night of going out, an appetizer for a nice stroll in the neighborhood, or a pickup for a surprise breakfast for the family, nothing screams fresh baked goodies more than St-Viateur Bagel Shop.
