The Best Bagels in Toronto

When it comes to the best bagels in Toronto, there are so many delicious options to choose from, ranging in flavour profile, style and place of origin. No matter the time of day, nothing hits quite the same, like biting into a fresh bagel with, quite honestly, anything sandwiched in between.

From New York to Montreal, to Turkish, here is a guide showcasing the best bagels in Toronto so that you can try a new spot every time the craving hits.

8 Pardee Ave

Brodflour

Brodflour

Founded in 2017, this Liberty Village bakery serves up rotating baked goods and bread, but their Jerusalem bagels stand out. Typically, this is a yeasted, crusty bagel that is shaped into an oblong ring and covered in sesame seeds.

Sherm's Bagels

Sherm's Bagels

Established in December of 2020 by best friends Jesse Labovitz and Adam Fujiki, this not-so-secret small-batch bagel operation has seen quite the success story, pumping out around 500 mouthwatering bagels daily. For those who have a tough time deciding what to order, be sure to try the half sesame, half poppyseed to satisfy all your bagel cravings in one.

53 Roncesvalles Ave

AM Bagel

AM Bagel

A quaint nook located in Roncesvalles, with chalkboard menus offering bagel sandwiches plus house-baked treats and coffee. All bagels are imported fresh daily from Gryfe's bagels, which is a big win for those unable to travel up to North York for a savoury treat.

240 Augusta Ave

Nu Bügel

Nu Bügel

Located in Toronto's Kensington Market, this modern, cozy bakery offers wood-fired bagels, bagel sandwiches (with Venezuelan toppings) and coffee, plus outdoor seating. It is located in Toronto's Kensington Market.

10 Disera Dr

Bagel World - Thornhill

Bagel World - Thornhill

With three locations (Thornhill, North York and Newmarket), Bagel World is famous for their twisters, flat bagels, breads, and sinfully delicious sweets baked fresh daily. Be sure to try out the Bagelini, a pressed panini-style bagel sandwich with an array of topping options.

2248 Queen St E

Bagels on Fire

Bagels on Fire

This bagel spot has two Toronto locations (one in the Beaches and one near Queen and Spadina) and is famous for its Montreal-style bagels. Husband and wife duo Hazel and Julio Penullar make the bagels themselves from scratch. They also make pretzels and giant twisty bagels with signature flavours like pumpernickel and coconut.

1438 Yonge St

The Bagel House - Deer Park

The Bagel House - Deer Park

Since 1999, the Bagel House has been serving Torontonians delicious Montreal-style bagels with an extensive list to choose from. For those craving a bagel any time of day, each location is open 24/7, so feel free to stop by in the wee hours of the evening for great bagels, lox, cream cheese and other great deli food.

1278 Queen St W

Rustic Cosmo Cafe

Rustic Cosmo Cafe

This hidden gem in Parkdale is equipped with a cozy back patio and is known for its delicious and inventive breakfast bagel sandwiches, loaded with all kinds of different ingredients. Try the Rustic Bagel with Swiss cheese, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts and garlic aioli.

847 Brown's Line

Kettleman's Bagel Co.

Kettleman's Bagel Co.

This Montreal bagel staple from Ottawa has finally opened a location in Etobicoke, serving up some of the best bagel sandwiches in the city. When walking into the shop, the first thing you'll see is a Kettleman's Bagel Roller working and rolling fresh bagels, cutting the dough with a knife, and boiling the bagels in honey water to seal the moisture. Pro tip: if you can't make it out to Etobicoke to pick up a dozen bagels, most Farm Boy locations across the city are now carrying Kettleman's bagels in bags of 6.

323 Roncesvalles Ave

Mabel's Bakery

Mabel's Bakery

If you're craving an authentic Montreal-style bagel, this Toronto bakery, with many locations, is a must-try. Their bagels are boiled in water with honey, and as a result, are slightly sweeter than your average bagel. They are cooked in wood-fired ovens, giving them a crunchier crust and a deeper, richer crust flavour.

130 Spadina Ave

What A Bagel - Spadina

What A Bagel - Spadina

A Toronto staple, this New York-style chain has taken over the bagel scene by storm, having opened 12 successful locations across the city. For three generations, What a Bagel has been mixing, boiling, dressing and baking bagels the same way since 1997. Everything is made from scratch with natural ingredients and served fresh straight from the oven.
