Montreal bagels are a thing. Unlike New York’s, they are hand-rolled, poached in honey water, and baked in a wood-burning oven. The result is a sweeter, denser ring.
Fairmont and St. Viateur are the city's bagel heavyweights, both commanding a devoted following in the Mile End neighborhood. I won't take sides, I'll just verify that you can't go wrong with Montreal's bagel game.
