If you’re hungry and happen to be in the Glebe, follow your nose to Kettleman’s Bagel Company, where its wood-oven-baked bagels earned it the title of best bagels in Ottawa eight years in a row.

Culinary options abound in that area, but whether they’re eaten with cream cheese or as part of a Reuben, turkey, tuna or roast pork sandwich, they’re a fast and relatively healthy meal or snack.

For less than a dollar apiece, bagels include cinnamon raisin, cranberry lemon, chocolate, blueberry, pumpernickel, whole wheat, onion, garlic, all-dressed, sun dried tomato, and garlic and muslix.
