St-Viateur Bagel Montreal

St-Viateur Bagel MontrealMontreal is known around the world for making the best tasting bagels. St-Viateur Bagel, Montreal’s longest-running bagel bakery has perfected the art of bagels since they first opened in 1957.

Back in the 50’s when bagels first emerged in Montreal they were just another option, but by the 70’s, as the city culture diversified, people were discovering the taste of the bagel, increasing it’s popularity. Throughout the 90’s, bagels became mainstream with franchise and imitations popping up, but were no comparison to the authentic Montreal bagel.

For over 50 years the family owned St-Viateur Bagel has been pumping out bagel and bagel, and through the course of the years, nothing has changed. They have stuck to their tried and true recipe and traditions, which has been the key to their success.

Traditional Montreal bagels, like those from St-Viateur, are made with malt, hand-rolled, and boiled in a honey-water mix. This gives them the distinctive golden brown colour when they are baked in the wood-fired oven. The wood fired oven both cooks the bagel and adds flavour. The result is a sweet, chewy bagel unlike any other.

Visiting St-Viateur Bagel is a must-do for anyone visiting Montreal. They have seven bakery locations, including three cafes. The most popular location is at 263 Saint Viateur W.

If you aren’t heading to Montreal but still want to experience an authentic Montreal bagel, you can order online and receive fresh bagels, shipped out each day.
