Montreal Bagels: The One Thing You Can't Bagelieve You Haven't Tried

As a student living in Montreal, finding affordable and comfortable student housing in Montreal is a top priority. Luckily, Montreal is home to several student-friendly neighborhoods with plenty of options for student housing. If you're looking for a fun and tasty way to explore the city, then you have to try Montreal bagels. They're a local institution, and there's no better way to get a taste of Montreal than by sinking your teeth into a fresh, warm bagel.

I don't care if you're Team St-Viateur or Team Fairmount, because either way, you're in for a treat.

Montreal bagels have been a staple in the city for over a century, and for good reason. They're hand-made into rings, dipped in honey water, and baked in a wood-fired oven. Even Nike made a shoe to pay homage to these golden dough circles. That's some serious street cred.

Bagels? Who wants bagels?

If you're a student living in student housing in Montreal, then you should definitely try some Montreal bagels. You can ask the locals for their top-notch list of the best bagels in town. And if you're not sure which one to choose, good luck. Even die-hard Montrealers can’t seem to decide.

And if you really want to show off your love for Montreal bagels, you can rock a pair of sesame-coated kicks from Nike or cream cheese socks (yes, they exist). I mean, why not? These bagels are a freakin' institution.

But let's be real, no matter which one you choose, you're in for a mouth-watering experience. These bagels are so flavourful that they hardly need toppings, but I won't judge you if you pile on the gravlax and cream cheese. 🧀🤤

If you're a student looking for affordable student housing in Montreal, then you should definitely check out the neighborhoods near these bagel shops. Not only will you be able to enjoy some of the best bagels in the city, but you'll also be living in some of the most vibrant and student-friendly neighborhoods in Montreal.

Drooling bagel sandwich

And if you're feeling extra adventurous, check out Bagel Etc. on rue St-Laurent. They've got nearly a dozen variations of bagel-based sandwiches, including one with goat cheese, spinach, red pepper, cucumber, and tomato. They even have a sandwich called the 'Croque-thon' with tuna, tomato, and melted cheddar salad. Now that's what I call a bagel bonanza.

But, if you're not feeling up for a sandwich, no worries. St-Viateur Bagel & Café in the Plateau has perfected the bagel sandwich, and Jewish deli Arthur's Nosh Bar in St-Henri serves up popular Montreal-style bagels with gravlax and cream cheese. And if you're in the mood for breakfast, head to Beauty's retro Jewish diner for the 'Beauty's Bonjour,' a bagel stuffed with egg, bacon, and cheese.

Living in student housing in Montreal can be a fantastic experience, especially when you're surrounded by the city's vibrant culture and delicious food scene. Montreal bagels are a must-try for any student living in Montreal. And if you're not convinced yet, just remember, these bagels have been around for over a century, and they've only gotten better with time. So, what are you waiting for? Go get yourself a warm, fragrant ring and join the bagel revolution.
