Our Story is Aba's Story

It all started in 2005, when Aba (you also know him as Arie) opened a What-A-Bagel franchise right in the heart of the upper village. At last, the neighbourhood had all the quality bagels, breads, schmear, and conversation they’d been waiting for. Before long, Aba and his baked delights had become a staple in the neighbourhood.

Over the next 15 years, Aba took his humble bakery and expanded into catering and wholesale to better serve his community. From breakfast to dinner, from joyous occasions to solemn ones, Aba’s catered it. He often proudly reminds us that he served his bagels at the bris and bar mitzvah of the same young man. 

Now is the next chapter for Aba… Aba’s Bagel Company! Along with his son, Daniel, they’re dishing out the same delicious taste, same unparalleled service, and same great conversation you know and love at two locations! 

Dig into beautiful, fresh salads, sandwiches, and Mama’s rotating menu of home cooking at 884a Eglinton Ave West (Just across the road. We see you North side). 

Or, come by our current location, “Aba’s Bagel Factory” (973 Eglinton Ave West), for your favourite freshly baked pastries, breads, bagels, and sandwiches. 

We can’t tell you how excited we are for this next chapter of our journey together. Follow along on Instagram @Abas.Bagels to see what Aba and Mama are cookin’ up today.
