We arrived just as the Sesame Bagels were coming out of the oven. No topping/filling or butter. Delicious. Only take Cards if you spend $20 or more, ensure that you have cash if you only want a couple of Bagels. All the spreads are in...fridges if you wanted to buy some. Definitely worth jtMore

This was rated as one of the two places to go for bagels. We got there at 8am and it wasn’t busy yet. Had a blueberry and whole wheat. These were the best bagels I’ve had.

You can't go to Montreal and not hear about Montreal and their bagels. The next thing you'll hear is about the rivalry between two popular bagel shops. Having been brought up in NY with a bagel shop a block away, I knew I had to...try them. I walked into Fairmount Bagel and asked for whatever bagel was warm from the oven. Yum, the bagels here did not disappoint. They are hand rolled and shaped. They are smaller than the bagels I am used to, but very good. I thought the bagels here were fresh, and delicious. No tables here for sitting, just fresh warm bagels.More

Went to Fairmont Bagels that first opened in 1919 and moved to its current location in 1949. Place is very small that sells a variety of bagels however the toppings for the bagels are sold in large containers. Had a delicious warm sesame seed bagel...that had a hint of honey. Also had a strawberry chocolate bagel that was a bit on the hard side….it didn’t taste fresh. Best to bring cash for small orders.More

Best bagel I’ve ever had. Great coverage of seeds on each side. Right out of the wood fired oven. Outstanding.

I’m a tourist from New England in the US and researched this is the place to go for bagels in Montreal. Me and my mom got a sesame, blueberry and bozo. They were all good, fresher and lighter than the US bagels. They could use...some salt though. My favorite was the blueberry and we both liked the bozo. I wish they let you heat them up, would be better.More

The best bagels I’ve ever had! Soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and covered in toppings all around. I bought a dozen to bring home to Ontario because there is nothing like it around here.

We didn't realize that the location we went to (unsure about other locations) was a grab and go concept - no toasting, cutting, spreads, no sitting, etc. It was also cash only. Since we're visiting, we grabbed some bagels to go and bring home, which...were hard by the next day even after we put them in a ziploc. We didn't get to experience them fresh or day of so we cannot speak to that, but they were fine enough. Nothing different than any other bagel from the store. Worth a visit to see if you enjoy. :)More

I bought 3 bagels. When I tried to eat one, it tasted like plaster or cement. The way the young man behaved, I believe that he knew it.

I’m absolutely team Fairmount when it comes to the Montreal bagel wars. The sesame seed is my go to since you’re almost always going to get a hot one fresh out of the wood fired oven, as this is the type they make the most...frequently. The cranberry bagel was great too. The inside of the store is small, and there’s a line up sometimes as quite popular, definitely worth the wait though. Bagels themselves are the perfect amount of chewy and sweet. I don’t live in Montreal but I’ve visited three times now and I’m already looking forward to the next visit!More

Went to Fairmount Bagel during a self guided food crawl in the mile end area of Montreal. Went during the week early afternoon so no line up. It was cool to see them making the bagels right in front of me. Went with a sesame...bagel. It was fresh, perfect density and amount of sesame seeds. Had a bagel from St Viateur too, its a tight race between who makes the better bagel. I recommend trying both and judging for yourself.More

Smaller and sweeter than New York bagels, but still pretty good. They give you a small cream cheese as well. Tried the sesame seed bagel.

One of the most popular and famous bagel stores in Montreal. They serve us quite a few flavors of the classic Montreal bagel, and I think you have to try them and compare to those you like from home. What do you think?

Got an onion bagel. Very flavorful with medium level of doughiness and a touch of salt. Not too fluffy and not too rubbery - just the right texture and good flavor. I would rate this a tad better than St. Viateur for flavor.

Wanted to try Montreal bagels and this place came recommended. The line was fast moving and not long around 10am on a weekday. I wish I had looked up the place ahead of time to know that this place is *just* bagels. As far as...I could tell there was no option to get a bagel with cream cheese or lox etc on it, just a bag of bagels and then containers of spreads. This was fine, I just wasn’t prepared for it. I’m from New York and this was definitely a different kind of bagel - sweeter, less fluffy, almost like a baked pretzel consistency. Tasty, but next time I’ll plan ahead!More
