When most people think about Montreal bagels, two key players and their decade’s old rivalry come to mind: Fairmount and St-Viateur.

From Côte Saint-Luc to La Petite-Patrie and everywhere in between, there are no shortage of bagels to be found and devoured in an around this city.

QC H2T 2M2, Canada
(514) 272-0667

The older of the two rival bagelries, Fairmount opened in Mile End in 1919 and has been pumping out bagels ever since. Fans of Fairmount bagels attest to their slightly sweeter nature as giving them the edge over St-Viateur (though St-Viateur fans say the same thing, so it’s really anyone’s game).

Since 1957, they’ve since expanded to include locations on Mont-Royal Avenue, as well as a couple of other spots off-island. Its flagship location is open 24-7 (as is Fairmount’s, in fairness) so it’s a great place to stop for a late-night snack, served hot and fresh out of the oven.
