This is a great spot for bagels and sandwiches. The service staff is friendly but given they are always busy the wait in store can be a little long. When we went we ordered a dozen bagels and a couple of sandwiches. Both were excellent and the bagels were so fresh. Highly recommend this spot if you're in the neighbourhood.... More

Two of us easily shared a single bagel and salad. We got the chicken and avocado, and it was delicious. Try the horseradish jelly! It's not too hot. The bagels are crispy on the outside, like a real Montreal bagel.

Nice staff, awesome secret dressing on the side salads and delicious bagels in many variations. Tried Lox&Cream Cheese, honestly the best bagel I tasted so far.

Montreal bagels are a little too sweet and a tad wimpy on the tooth. NY bagels can be a tad too hard and chewy on the tooth. Now, Nu Bagel's Toronto version seems to fit right between the two. Excellent bagels.

The overwhelming swarm of small flies ruined our appetites. The dirty table edges and walls made my clothes dirty. Therefore it is hard to judge the food itself when my overall reaction is one of queasiness. I doubt that we will ever eat here again. I see an older review here also mentions the fly infestation therefore today's experience was... More

Bagels were fantastic. Had a coconut bagel with goat cheese and cranberry jam. Delicious! Beer was out of this world! The gentleman working with a strong accent was very cool. (9/16/2016 afternoon).

Yummy bagel sandwiches, lots of variety to choose from, smoked meats were delicious, over priced though. If you haven't been, should go at least once

The service at this shop was terrible. The young ladies behind the counter seemed to be put out that customers were interrupting their social hour. The food was decent - the bagels were definitely tasty, but the restaurant was swarming with gnats/flies that you had to swat away from your plate non-stop.

Almost as good as any Montreal bagel deli. Comfortable eating space. Delicious and interesting fillings all freshly made.

Located in Kensington Market district, this is a small and rustic restaurant. The staff aren't overly friendly and a bit disorganised, but the breakfast bagels are exceptional. I have never had such a flavorful bagel before. The coffee is also very good and I highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
