Montrealers swear by their bagels—and for good reason. Smaller, denser and a tad sweeter than their New York cousins, Montreal bagels are so delicious you’ll be ordering them by the dozen. What makes them so special? They’re all hand-rolled, poached in honey-infused water and served hot right out of a wood fired oven! We all know Fairmount and St-Viateur are the city’s top two contenders for the title of Montreal’s best bagels, but here are some other bagel shops that are oozing with mouth-watering scents of freshly baked treats.

Hinnawi Bros Bagel & Café

Although other bagel joints do offer the option of making a sandwich, Hinnawi Bros Bagel & Café is Montreal’s very first bagel sandwich shop. A great spot to grab a coffee and enjoy one of their many tasty bagel sandwiches prepared with the freshest ingredients. Opt for a sweeter treat and try their scrumptious Nutella bagel.
