Bagel Time is a bagel shop on Danforth Avenue and as the name rightly suggests – bagel is the primary offering. They specialise in Montreal-style bagels that are made right in front of you in a wood-fired oven.
Their Montreal style bagels are made in the traditional method. The history of these bagels can be traced to a Polish lady who came to Canada and the recipe for these bagels was brought with her. She established her bagel shop in Montreal and Bagel Time is being operated by an employee from that original shop. Bagel Time is in Toronto and they use the traditional polish recipes to create perfect Montreal style bagels. These are handcrafted and artisanal, making it more special as compared to machine cut bagels.
