Established in 1995, Rocky Mountain Bagel Co has become synonymous with delicious, quality food, which is all made from scratch. “It’s not the most economical way to do things,” says owner, Darren Fischer, “But it’s nice to be the place that still makes everything from scratch.”
The difference is in the quality. Every night, skilled bakers make bagels for the following day. They make New York style bagels, which are baked in a specialty oven, rather than fried. It creates a lighter, crispier bagel that doesn’t leave you with that heavy too-full feeling afterwards.
These bagels are sold at the restaurant’s two locations in addition to homemade soup-of-the-day and house-made cream cheese flavours. The options are seemingly endless: from a bagel with peanut butter and jam to delicious bagelwiches, made with specialty cut meats from Valbella’s. They also serve local coffee from Mountain Blends Coffee Roasters or tea from Naturel Tea Co in Banff.
