What is a Montreal bagel?


Montreal bagels date back to the 17th century and are unique for their crispy outside and chewy inside. Kettlemans Montreal bagels are hand-rolled to press out any air and create a distinct texture, boiled in honey water, and wood fired in order to give them their signature taste. Our recipe has remained unchanged since 1993, and we have pledged to never change it. Every Kettlemans bagel made has been hand-rolled, in store, in front of our guests.

Did you know that the recipe we used can be dated back to Krakow, Poland in 1610? And we honour this tradition to this very day.

What’s the best way to enjoy my bagel at home?


In order to maintain your bagel’s freshness, we recommend slicing and freezing them in your store provided freezer bag once they’ve cooled. When ready to eat, simply toast from frozen and enjoy!

Why are your bagels “perfectly imperfect?”


As each bagel is hand rolled, no two Kettlemans bagel are identical.

Do we sell vegan bagels?


As all of our bagels are boiled in honey water prior to baking, our bagels are not vegan.

However, for those vegans who do eat honey, our whole wheat bagel does not contain any other animal byproducts such as eggs or dairy.

Do you have Dairy Free cream cheese?


Kettlemans offers a delicious dairy-free spread that pairs perfectly with any Kettlemans bagel.

Do your bagels contain dairy?
