Over 300 customers pass through Ottawa’s bagel institution, Ottawa Bagelshop and Deli, every day. Along with enjoying their quality products and family friendly atmosphere, bagel lovers will now be able to enjoy original Canadian art from the Canada Council Art Bank collection.
Inspired by the family related St-Viateur Bagel in Montreal, Ottawa Bagelshop and Deli in Wellington Village was the first in Ontario to offer a hand rolled and wood-burning bagel.
The Bagelshop is using original Canadian artwork to offer clientele a deeper sense of their business and values beyond gourmet food – those of family and community.
