Bagels started it all. Now it is a large eclectic food shop with hot out of the wood oven bagels. It also is a restaurant for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. There is take out so you can enjoy the fresh food anywhere. I love it. Everyone loves it.

You can't beat bagels that are handmade before your very eyes that are also boiled in honey water and backed in a wood fired oven. Its the only way bagel should be made. Bought 3 dozen poppy seed bagels and made a BBLT. Bagels were still chewy even when toasted and held up to all the mayo and juice of... More

This is a busy place at lunch. We were quite a big group, however, arriving at around 1 pm we managed to find a table for eleven. You put in your order, you are given a number and your meal is delivered to your table. We found the bagel sandwich to be very good! It is served with a few... More

If your looking for a bona fide Bagel made the old school way then make this your stop. We added smoked salmon, cream cheese for a wonderful sandwich. Coffee was good and eating area clean. Cafe was part of a delicatessen which was also a treat to visit.

I often have breakfast here and the menu is quite extensive. The food is great and it is served in a casual setting. Great place for families and large groups of friends meeting up together. Super spot.

We had lunch today at Ottawa Bagelshop. They have the best bagels in Ottawa! We each had a different bagel sandwich (smoked salmon, breakfast bagel and bagel club) with coffee. The food was fresh, the service was prompt and the prices are right! There are lots of tables and it has a very informal environment.

I was told that I absolutely needed to eat bagels while I was visiting Ottawa. I was able to try both the Bagelshop and Kettlemans for a duo bagel comparison (and multiple bagel meals). The breakfast plate I ordered was very tasty and the bagel was amazing! It was fresh and toasty. Worth the walk to the shop for sure!... More

First, they have a full deli below the ramp leading up to the restaurant itself. They are open from 6:30 am-5:30 pm every day. They are known for their bagels and deli products. The good sized restaurant has a reading nook with comfy chairs, free newspapers left by patrons (or you can get one in the deli). The tables range... More

I have eaten billions and billions of bagels in my life (okay I exaggerate but you get the idea) However, the Ottawa Bagel Shop is the home of the best and true bagel! They also have unique items throughout the shop (Birch syrup!) and desserts that make you want to jump through the display glass and eat them all. The... More
