st viateur ~ famous bagels of montreal

st viateur bagels

I was recently introduced to a taste sensation ~ Montreal bagels.  But not just any Montreal bagel, the St. Viateur Bagel.

A different breed than their New York cousin, the St. Viateur bagel is boiled in honey water and cooked in a woodfire oven.  From their website:

Each bagel is hand rolled, boiled in honey water, and cooked in a wood fired oven that was designed to both cook and flavour the bagel. What comes out of this process is a chewy, slightly sweet bagel that is incomparable to any other bagel being made today. We have never compromised quality for quantity, and because of this we have a limited amount of bagels that can be produced each day.

A family business and bonafide landmark, their flagship bakery is open 24/7 and makes 1,000 hand rolled bagels per day.  They offer sesame, poppy and plain and ~ yes ~ they ship to the states.

Online ordering is easy, but the minimum is 4 dozen so it’s important to know how to store your delicious bagels.

Toasted up and topped with butter and jam, or cream cheese and lox ~ or whatever your heart desires ~ these are definitely worth shipping to your door.  They freeze well and have a sweet, nutty flavor and chewy texture that is truly unique.  Délicieux!
