I was told that I absolutely needed to eat bagels while I was visiting Ottawa. I was able to try both the Bagelshop and Kettlemans for a duo bagel comparison (and multiple bagel meals). The breakfast plate I ordered was very tasty and the bagel was amazing! It was fresh and toasty. Worth the walk to the shop for sure!... More

First, they have a full deli below the ramp leading up to the restaurant itself. They are open from 6:30 am-5:30 pm every day. They are known for their bagels and deli products. The good sized restaurant has a reading nook with comfy chairs, free newspapers left by patrons (or you can get one in the deli). The tables range... More

I have eaten billions and billions of bagels in my life (okay I exaggerate but you get the idea) However, the Ottawa Bagel Shop is the home of the best and true bagel! They also have unique items throughout the shop (Birch syrup!) and desserts that make you want to jump through the display glass and eat them all. The... More

There's deli counter selling good cheese and pastries. There are a few displays selling good jams, sauces and sweets. But the real reason you come here is for the bagels. Buy them by the dozen and eat one on the way out while they're still warm. Or better yet, go to the back and order breakfast. Take a seat among... More

Just when I think I've seen it all, little gems show up to prove me wrong. Dropped by this place and was impressed with what I saw; it's a deli, a Cafe, it's licenced?! Yes to all the above. The 'bagelsub' comes in breakfast and lunch variation; I had the egg and Swiss cheese variant which was warm and tasted... More

I have enjoyed a couple of great breakfasts here. The breakfast bagel sandwich special hit the spot as did the eggs and bacon breakfast. The star is the delicious Montreal style bagel that arrives with your meal. Personally, I stick with sesame but all the flavours are great. The food is all good, hot, and served fresh. You order your... More

Real Montreal-style bagels in Ottawa at least as good as those from further east! And at least 2 hours fresher since they bake throughout the day in their wood-fired oven. Cold cuts? Lox? Cream cheese? They've got it all as well as a good selection of chocolates and sweets. Good coffee and breakfasts if you're not in the mood to... More

Not sure how one can screwed up a BLT, but I just had the worst one ever. Toasted bagel that wasn't buttered, lots of bacon but most of it was fatty so had to pick it off, then literally one flimsy piece of lettuce with the smallest slice of tomato that I wasn't even sure there was tomato on the...

Finding a good bagel in a new city is high on the list of food imperatives in my world. The Ottawa Bagelshop and Deli has excellent bagels - yaaahh! I just came to buy bagels. Famous last words. Gotta get a smoked meat bagel while we're here. And look - they have those olives I like. And those cheese -... More
