We love Great Canadian bagels -- the big soft bagels in a variety of flavours with a wide range of cream cheese options. Sadly, these stores have been disappearing across Ontario. So we were happy to find one in Ajax. We went in on Saturday morning to find hardly any selection left. The staff told us they had been very... More

I've been to many places and had bagels but these are by far the best! They make them fresh IN HOUSE! You can even see the bagel maker behind the glass wall. The moment you go in it smells incredible of freshly cooked bagels. I'd say all of the bagels are good as well as the cream cheese. I've never... More

We've been buying bagels and cream cheese here for many years and through several different franchisers. While the goods are fantastic, you have to be careful when you go for the best selection. Morning is the safest, but if you go past lunchtime, they are likely to be out of many of the varieties. My favourite is the Cheddar &... More

When visiting Ajax I try to have breakfast here at least once. I drink my coffee black, and the coffee they serve really hits the spot, as do the bagels. Always fresh, hot and tasty, plenty of choice, although I do miss the spicy cheese and tomato bagel they used to sell. The sign is there, but alas no bagel.... More

We've been buying bagels here for years. They are tremendous! Every bagel is baked fresh each day. There is a wide assortment of varieties of both bagels and cream cheese, enough to satisfy any palate.
