Located inside St. Lawrence Market, St. Urbain Bagel is Toronto's favourite destination for the freshest authentic bagels
It all started when our ancestors brought the European Idea of a bagel (which is sweeter than a Toronto bagel) to North America in the early 1900’s after sailing for weeks from Europe towards Montreal his dream was to share the idea he grew up knowing and loving and sharing it with the people of Montreal. Some 30 years later one of the family members of the original Montreal bagel decided to bring the idea to the big city Toronto. He opened up the first Montreal bagel store in the city and it was a hit. We at St Urbain Bagel are continuing the tradition that started hundreds of years before us and hope to continue the same way for another hundred years. We are a family owned and operated business that commits the freshest and best products you can find on the market today with the freshest ingredients. Therefore that is why we are voted best Bagel in Toronto for many years running. We at St Urbain Bagel in St Lawrence Market are continuing the tradition that started hundreds of years before us and hope to continue the same way for another hundred years. We are family owned and operated for generations.
In the 16th and first half of the 17th centuries, the bajgiel became a staple of the Polish national diet, and a staple of the slavic diet generally. Its name derives from the Yiddish word 'beygal' meaning 'ring' or 'bracelet'. The bagel is enjoyed in all parts of the world from China who call their bagel a 'girdeh', to Turkey who call theirs an 'acma'. The bagel has travelled to all parts of the globe and has made an integral part in many cultures. That is why people love the BAGEL.
To this day the bagel has many variants such as the New York/Toronto style which is much saltier, larger, and doughier than the traditional Montreal bagel. Montreal bagels contain no salt and are boiled in water and honey to create a slight sweetness. They are baked in a wood fire oven to give them a more authentically distinct taste and texture.
