Established on May 21, 1957 by Myer Lewkowicz, the bakery takes its name from its street, St-Viateur Street. The bagel shop operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and serves over 12,000 bagels a day. A The New York Times Montreal Travel guide explains that "the bagels are boiled in honey water before a stint in a wood-fired oven, which gives the dense, chewy rings a slightly sweet flavor."
In addition to the flagship location, there are six other locations, three of which are "bagel cafés."
