A Mile End institution since 1919, Fairmount Bagel’s been crafting bagels using century-old recipes, maintaining tradition through three generations. Now owned by Irwin and Rhonda Shlafman, the bakery boasts an array of handcrafted favourites including classic sesame and poppy seed bagels alongside newer additions like multigrain and cinnamon raisin. Eschewing artificial ingredients, the bakery's commitment to tradition is evident in its manual production process. Can’t find the spot?
