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

Was really excited to eat a bagel from here but they didn’t live up to expectation. Yes it was a good bagel, but it wasn’t the best I’ve ever eaten, average at best sadly.

This place was highly recommended. We got there around 10 on a Sat morning and there was no line. However in just the short time while we were ordering, the line was out the door. You walk up to the small counter and place your...order which they bag for you and you pay and leave. There is no seating. The person who took our order was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, we found the bagels to be so-so. It seemed they were missing salt and so were a a bit blah. I don’t know if this is normal or just a miss on that day.More

There are two Montreal institutions for getting bagels – Fairmount and Saint Viateur. Since we had already visited Saint Viateur earlier, our host took us to Fairmount in Miles End. The bagels just came out of the oven so they were fresh and hot. Tasted so...yummy: chewy and slightly sweet. The sesame gave it a nice mouth feel. It’d not fair to compare them to Saint Viateur for we bought these fresher. We can, however, proudly boast that we have tried both of Montreal’s finest.More

Everyone said to try it...we did but be aware, only bagels, no coffee/juice. The Bozo is sesame seed on one side and poppy on the other. Definitely tastes different than a NY bagel, it's sweeter. You can get little individual cream cheeses or they have...a cooler of salmon and other kinds of cream cheese.More

My co worker recommended this bagel institution. 100 years in business says it all. The old world ambience and the fresh bagels are memorable. Plus the bagels are amazing. 4 dozen to go!

Excellent, fresh wood-fired bagels at a very good price. What’s not to like? Always wonderful to visit the culturally/historically significant location on Fairmount. I try to stop here every time I visit Montreal.

So on the recommendation of out Hotel receptionist we stopped at the Fairmount Bagel shop which happened to be near by as well. Small store with a line up...out the door. the bagels are different , the taste is unique but a some flavors did not work too well with me. Worth a try .More

Fairmount or St.V for bagels?? That is the million dollar Montreal question. The easy answer is... they both make great bagels and you won't be disappointed! But for my latest trip, I chose Fairmount and I wasn't disappointed. If you can't wait to get home...(or back to your hotel), to sample the bagels, then you'll have to buy a tub of cream cheese and eat them on the sidewalk out front with the rest of the tourists. This is, after all, just a (great) bakery and nothing else. No seating, no fancy overpriced coffee, just traditional bread based greatness. As if you needed another excuse to visit the Mile End neighbourhood, this is it.More

Long lines, while people wait their turn to enter bagel bakery. People buy their out of the oven warm bagels to go and can also purchase various cream cheeses. There are 18 plus varieties of bagels. They are amazing bagels - light, soft on the...inside, crunchy on the outside, hand rolled and baked in a wood oven, supposedly honey addition to batter gives them the slightly sweet taste. Montreal bagels are the best ! There is no place to sit down and eat.More
