James, AKA JJ, who is the best known AND the best baker in the business, started out at the Fairmount Bakery in Montreal's east end more than 30 years ago.
There is no need to go back to Montreal to get a delicious traditional Montreal-style bagel; you only have to go as far east as Orleans.
JJ has brought that Montreal taste, texture and quality that our customers (many, former Montrealers) grew up enjoying.
He has modified the recipe to make it a healthier product; even Weight Watchers recommend his bagels...so you can enjoy one of his bagels "guilt free".
Come in and watch him do it... he never (well, almost never) drops one when "flipping" the bagels off the sheba and into the shute.
