This is the place to go to for bagels in Ottawa! The bagels are Montreal -style - a little different than the type we regularly eat in Toronto, but equally as tasty. The place looks so much nicer since the renovations have been completed. If you haven't been to Kettleman's, you definitely have to go and check them out!

My go to bagel shop. They also use Uber Eats so I get them delivered too. The roast beef bagel is the best ever.

the server coughed in her hand then grabbed some bagels. The bathroom has no paper towels so you know you are dirtying your hands on the door knob or taps, after they hopefully have been washed. The place has been renovated/expanded but but they lack in cleanliness.. most of the servers look like they are on passes from prison too....... More

The bagels are surreal! All freshly baked in the wooden fire oven, with different options like whole wheat, poppyseed, plain, etc... You can add cream cheese and jam or whatever you like. It is everything good! Fresh! Hot and melts in your mouth!!! For breakfast, lunch or dinner... this Place is awesome! Family, friends, couples, kids... all welcome!

I forgot the name of what I ordered but it was a pastry filled with chocolate and my friend got an apple turnover. They were both amazing and I will probably go there again soon.

Kettleman's has hands down the best bagels I've ever eaten. I love that I can watch the staff bake the bagels in the wood burning oven. The bagels are super fresh, a little chewy and paired with delicious, home made cream cheese. At our table we had: -Muesli bagel with blueberry spread. A little sweet and really good for breakfast...

A great bakery with a 24/7 service, wi-fi, charging station and it's own parking for about 8 cars - the latter being a rarity on the Glebe. The only thing I wish is that they accepted credit cards for payment - it's the 21st century, after all. Raise you price by 1.5% if you must but make it convenient for... More

Kettleman's bagels are the only bagels I'll eat: Montreal-style and delicious, especially when still warm. I've also been for lunch many many times and they have a number of tasty sandwich options, including a veggie one with spicy eggplant. The CBC (chicken, bacon, swiss cheese) and the Rueben (smoked meat with swiss and sauerkraut) are excellent, and I've also enjoyed... More

Anytime I am in the Ottawa area, I always make sure I stop at Kettleman's Bagels and get a couple of dozen of freshly baked bagles right from the wood burning oven! Montreal style in the heart of Ottawa! Always a treat !!

This place is the best, great bagels and sandwiches! It's even better now that they have expanded...the only downfall is that it often gets too busy!
