St-Viateur Bagel is a Montreal institution that opened in 1957 on St-Viateur street in Outremont. Open 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week, the original St-Viateur Bagel still stands, but the chain has also expanded with a food truck that roams the city during the warmer months, another St-Viateur Bagel just down the road from the original location and a few St-Viateur Bagel & Cafés, like the one we went to in DDO.
The original St-Viateur Bagel is just a bakery where you take your goods to go, the St-Viateur Bagel & Cafés, are both bakeries and cafés where you can enjoy various bagel inspired sandwiches and coffee. We discovered one of these spots in the West Island, very close to the office and perfect for a quick delicious Montreal-esque lunch. You can buy a dozen bagels to take home, as well as cream cheese, smoked salmon and the usual trimmings to enjoy with bagels.
We opted for the traditional, which is a smoked salmon bagel sandwich with cream cheese, tomatoes, onions and capers. It was delicious, packed full of ingredients and all part of that quintessential Montreal experience. Their bagel sandwiches come with the choice of soup or salad, but we opted for the salad. Other bagel sandwiches include a smoked meat bagel sandwich, a ham and swiss cheese sandwich, spicy eggplant with goat cheese sandwich, etc.
Our love of St-Viateur Bagel knows no bounds! In 2013, we were on the Food Network’s Eat St. where we were filmed at the St-Viateur Bagel food truck getting down and dirty with their bagel sandwiches. If you want to watch the episode that we were in go HERE. If you’re in the West Island and craving Montreal bagels, you don’t need to make the trek to Outremont, St Viateur Bage & Café in DDO has just what you need!
