June 2023: Glenn Spence, owner of MTL Bagel and MTL Yardie
For the Côte Saint-Luc Local Commerce Committee, the Spotlight on Local Merchants for June 2023 is on Glenn Spence. He owns Mtl Bagel, and now Mtl Yardie, located at 5452/5450 Westminster Avenue.
A native of Jamaica, Glenn learned the trade working at Fairmount Bagel. Ten years ago, he opened Mtl Bagel which immediately became a favorite spot in the community. Here they offer 15 different flavors of bagels, as well as a variety of sandwiches, sides, drinks and snacks. Always fresh, they are cooked in a wood oven. There are breakfast and lunch specials. Mtl Bagel also has a wholesale division. More recently, Glenn rented the storefront next door and immediately doubled his space in size. On May 2, 2023, Mtl Yardie opened as a mainly take-out spot for traditional Jamaican cuisine
Mtl Bagel is open from 6:30 am to 7 pm Monday to Friday and 7 am to 7 pm on weekends. Mtl Yardie is open daily from 11 am to 9 pm.
