I love them fresh and warm - or toasted if they're a day old - I love them with lox and cream cheese and onions and capers- I love them with swiss cheese - and if the only food in the joint were beets and pickles well I'd probably love them with that as well.
Fairmount Bagel is a Montreal-style bagel bakery in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is located on Fairmount Avenue in the Mile End neighbourhood of the Plateau-Mont-Royalborough.
Opened in 1919 by Russian immigrant Isadore Shlafman, his hand-rolled recipe quickly became a staple in the Mile End community. He later moved his bakery from a laneway address to a two-storey cottage on Fairmount Avenue, building a large woodfire oven on the first floor, while his family lived upstairs. Fairmount Bagel is often referred to as the original Montreal bagel bakery.
The bakery is still family owned and competes with nearby St-Viateur Bagel for the title of Montreal's best bagel.
Ok - so you know they have to be good when astronauts take them to outerspace with them lol
Often, on a Saturday morning, John will drive down and pick up bagels for breakfast - something I really look forward to.
Montreal makes the best bagels in North America. I know, I know, New Yorkers like to claim that title but they're wrong, I've had both and they are absolutely wrong in this case. Sorry, no humble polite Canadian here - you can't mess with my bagels, period. In fact, New York and Montreal used to have a friendly contest every year to see who made the best Smoked Meat or Pastrami as it's called in the States and although N.Y. usually won for the meat - Montreal usually won for our bagels.
AND NOW THIS? SAY IT AIN'T SO, JOE, PLEASE SAY IT AIN'T SO.

Get that smile off your face honey - you've single handedly scarred me for life - and I wouldn't walk around N.Y. or Montreal if I were you - somebody's liable to smear cream cheese and lox all over your forehead...........................
Feel like bacon and eggs for a change John?
And by the way I mentioned the word BAGEL 14 times in this post - but don't worry - as of today I'm no longer a fan of them - and will never utter the word again.
Bon Apetit everyone
