Smith’s Bagelry

I’m always on the lookout for good Turkish food. We decided to check out Smith’s Balgery for a light lunch. They’re across the street from MEC.

Outside, they have simits and some pastries to entice you in.

We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 1:00pm) and it was busy. There’s about 6 tables inside along with two outside for people watch.

The menu is split into bagels, pogaca, bourek, sweets, bagel sandwiches and desserts.

There’s also a drink menu; coffee, teas and beverages.

Turkish coffee ($3.75)
DSC06268Very strong and aromatic. It’s a small cup and gets very sludgy at the end.

It comes with a small piece of Turkish delight.

Feta spinach bourek ($2.49 small)
DSC06261Good flaky texture and nice balance of feta to spinach.

Stuffed bagel ($4.99)
DSC06262This was tasty. I have no idea how they get the bagel to be so soft when you bite into it. The cheese and olives stuffed inside were warm and gooey.

Cappadocia ($8.49)
DSC06267Montreal smoked meat, cheddar, tomato and lettuce. The simit bagel is solid but I wish they warmed and/or toasted it slightly. Smoked meat was good but you don’t get much portion wise.

San Sebastien cheesecake ($4.99)
DSC06276We bought a slice for home. Excellent; fluffy, jiggly and not too sweet. I’m generally not a big cheesecake fan but I’d get this again.

You might not leave fully sated but SB has tasty simits and pastries.
