Mile End Bagels Hawthorn
Mile End has developed a loyal following for its dense, sweet, wood-fired bagels. At the bagel brand’s fourth spot, in a food truck in a repurposed car park, you can get a taste of its perfect Montreal-style rings.
The menu is the same as at its other locations across Fitzroy, Brunswick and Richmond. That means made-to-order sandwiches, including the bestsellers – smoked salmon, dill and caper cream cheese, tomato and red onion, chicken salad and brisket pastrami. There are six Montreal-style bagel options: everything, sesame, poppy, cinnamon and raisin, honey oat or rye.
Montreal-style bagels are boiled, then woodfired. They have a denser and sweeter dough than New York-style bagels. On a busy day, the Mile End team make 2000 bagels in their Fitzroy kitchen, then distribute them across the brand’s locations. The bagel joint is named for the Montreal neighbourhood of the same name, where two of the city’s best-known bagel shops, St-Viateur Bagel and Fairmount Bagel, are located.
