How long have we been open for?
We opened our doors on Feb 16, 2016. It still feels like yesterday.
Why is it called Mile End?
Mile End is the name of the suburb in Montreal where the two original and famous wood-fired bagel shops are located (St. Viateur and Fairmount).
Who are the owners/founders?
Mile End is owned by its two founders Ben Vaughan & Michael Fee. They keep a low profile, however, they'd be thrilled to receive invitations to events & opportunities (specifically Reality TV & Morning Breakfast shows) around town where they can spread the good word relating to wood fired bagels and the hospitality industry.

I'm a little bit allergic to xxxx ingredient. Can you make sure there's none of xxxx ingredient in my bagel?
