Continental Bagel – Ottawa

Are Ottawa bagels on par with  Montreal bagels? Before we left Ottawa, we had brunch at Continental Bagel in ByWard Market. The bagel shop is located in the central building that is surrounded by the market.

From top and clockwise: vegetarian on sesame, Montreal smoked meat on poppy seed, breakfast bagel on sesame and a plain herb & cheese.

The bagel shop is busy on that Sunday morning and nonstop bagels were in the making. Don’t expect much service and keep an eye on your order. The shop lacks communication between staff and the service can be quite slow. Luckly, we came early and didn’t have to wait much.

The bagel shop also has pastries, hot drinks and bagels by the dozen.

Hey, I can spot my dad watching the bagel man do his job. The below photo was taken on the second level, where the washrooms are located.

Which is better? They both have pros and cons, but I’d have to go with Montreal bagels. There’s just something about the smell, people lining up and walking out with a freshly baked bagel smeared with butter that screams Montreal!
