Meet the owner

Bagel Etc is a unique Montreal establishment that emerged out of a combination of a post-war antiques shop and a classic diner called “Cookies” in 1982. “We try to maintain that classic feeling,” …“We do everything we can homemade and from scratch—the hollandaise sauce, varieties of eggs Benedict and dill salad dressing are fan favourites—we put on golden oldies and classic novelty songs, and we try to keep as many antiques as possible on the premises to give it that feeling of comfort and hominess.”

The restaurant is never short of devotees, and Simon is a prime example: “I was a customer here for about 10 years before I started to cook, and eventually took over the operation of the restaurant as the couple who used to own it retired. In fact, everybody who works here starts out as a customer, and can’t help but stick around.”

Montreal's best brunch spots

Bagel ETC offers a comfy and casual yet eclectic vibe in a classic-diner setting. The restaurant serves all of the breakfast classics: eggs, pancakes, waffles, bagels, etc. (no pun intended). The huevos rancheros are well worth the Sunday brunch line-up.

Brunch picks on Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal

The food and décor at this Montreal institution located in front of the Parc du Portugal is reminiscent of an old-school diner. On the menu: bagels, of course! But not only bagels with cream cheese. Bagel Etc. also offers pancakes and eggs. Don’t be surprised if you see Leonard Cohen here, as he is apparently a regular.
