CaptureSpring is here and Summer is just around the corner.

During winter we enjoy filling our hungry bellies with heavy, warm foods that will help to keep the chill away. However, during the hotter months of the year, those foods aren’t as appetizing. We prefer foods that are both light and filling.

Kettleman’s Bagel Company in Ottawa has the ultimate summer menu, filled with foods that meet the criteria of filling us up, without sending us to bed.

Summertime Foods

  1. Bill Salad

A salad of any kind is almost always a great option for warmer weather. Fresh vegetables, fruits, chicken, a perfect combination of ingredients to fill you up without being too much.

Our absolute summertime favorite, is the Bill Salad. With plenty of fresh ingredients, and just the right amount of oven roasted chicken breast, this is the picture of a summer snack.


Crisp lettuce, oven roasted chicken breast cutlet, garden fresh tomatoes, cucumber, black olives, marinated spicy eggplant, sweet red peppers & onions. House dressing served on the side.

  1. BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato)

Everyone knows about the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. The combination of flavorful bacon and fresh vegetables makes this a sandwich to love.

Although this is a sandwich loved by the millions around the world, it’s actually quite hard to come across. Many restaurants have overlooked this simplistic, yet perfect, food masterpiece. Kettleman’s Bagel Company is one of the only Ottawa restaurants that still serves it!

This is a Kettleman’s Bagel Company specialty. The bagel with lox is one of the most refreshing snacks or meals you could ever have.

The thing that makes Kettleman’s so differerent, is the freshness. All bagels are made fresh everyday and all ingredients are fresh. You never have to worry about getting an inferior meal when you’re dining at Kettleman’s.

If you’re looking for something really fresh, the TLC sandwich might be exactly what you need. Made with no meat, just refreshing vegetables, this is a wonderful choice for hot days.

Have this sandwich as a snack before you embark on a shopping trip, and you won’t have to worry about feeling overly full or tired. It really doesn’t get any more fresh than this!
