I am pretty darn clear about my love of Montreal style bagels. I actually don’t eat any other kind. I can’t be bothered. If it is not the chewy sesame goodness of a Montreal style bagel it isn’t worth the carb guilt. I have had people smuggle them in to the US for me to keep in my freezer and ration out like toilet paper in Mother Russia – do you deserve a bagel today, hmmmm….
Imagine my delight when we discovered a Montreal style bagel shop in Port Credit in Mississauga – Are you imagining it? Well it was like that, only involving circle claps and a little jig.
This place isn’t fancy, a pokey little spot with bagel bins, a sandwich making counter, a couple of coolers for drinks and maybe some other stuff. I’m not totally sure because I was fixated on the bagels…and they didn’t disappoint. Toasted, buttered, a little pepper- and I was transported back to may favorite bagel shop in Montreal (Le Faubourg which is sadly now defunct, le sigh).
The dine in option is rather spartan and I would just as soon take my bagels to go and nibble them while I wander down by the lake. In addition to the big bag I am carrying back home with me for my personal hoard of course.
