La Maison de L'Original Fairmount Bagel

La Maison is on Fairmont Avenue West. The bagels are rolled by hand and baked in a wood oven. There's a bunch of bagels offered. We stuck to the original with sesame and poppy seed. The biggest difference between NYC and Montreal bagels, other than size, is the dough is salted much less here. Subtle, and by no means a bad thing.

The culprit, pretzel-like exterior with a soft and dense inside. Gotta eat 'em while they're still warm. They're a bit smaller than New York bagels so you might find yourself eating two or five.

The smoked salmon spread.  You can get it with or without mayo. Go without. There's no reason you should ever muddle the flavors inside that container.
