Having been in existence for over 16 years, What a Bagel is a family-owned restaurant franchise that prides itself on freshly baked goods and exceptional tasting dishes. The unique aspect of our business is that What a Bagel is the only establishment of its kind that offers hot, right out of the oven bagels directly to the customer. This means that the customer is literally able to take a pair of tongs and pick up a bagel right off the end of the conveyor belt. The melt in your mouth bagels are always soft and warm – can’t get any fresher than that!

What a Bagel is not only just a bakery anymore. The creation of downtown Toronto’s first What a Bagel is a full on eatery where customers are able to sit down and enjoy a delicious breakfast and/or lunch. Restaurant goers can select from an array of extraordinary tasting menu items coupled with the usage of the finest ingredients.

From the moment you enter into the inviting surroundings of What a Bagel’s contemporary design and stylishly trendy decor, the mouth-watering scent of onsite freshly baked goods will let you know that you’ve come to the right place! Rendering in the ultimate customer palate satisfaction with each and every bite!

Located in the heart of the city’s rapidly booming fashion district, our location is unique for an additional reason. Illustrations of hand drawn architectural drawings of the famous architect, Benjamin Brown, the original designer of the Fashion building, adorn the walls within our establishment. This particular building has been designated by the city of Toronto as a Heritage Building. Paying homage to the architect provides our customers with a little bit of history and ambiance while indulging in our delectable dishes.

What a way to start off your birthday! Visit our location on your birthday with photo identification and you will find yourself the proud new owner of a dozen free bagels! This is our way of showing our appreciation and gratitude to the customers who continuously frequent our establishment.
