Jack and Joseph Chami, two of seven Lebanese siblings, opened JC’s Hot Bagels on March 13, 1995. Working 16-hour days and 7 days a week, the brothers didn’t have clue what to expect, but with the tremendous help of their family and their own determination, they continued to work hard and move forward. Against all odds, and with God’s grace, they not only accomplished their dream, but they’ve also captured the hearts (and taste buds) of all those in Burlington and the GTA.
I love JC’s! Staff is friendly, bagels are hefty and flavourful. They always taste fresh no matter what time of day and the selection is nice. (Their chocolate chip is my favourite, definitely a must try)
It also feels great to support a local family run shop!
My wife and I stumbled upon this place while out for a Sunday drive. Lucky us! It was awesome. The smells, the rustic decor, the friendly chaos of a busy restaurant - oh and the bagels! So good! I had the bagel and lox. My wife had a bagel and cream cheese. The bagels were perfect; hot, flavourful, almost overstuffed. We absolutely loved it! It's an hour's drive from home....and worth it. Can't wait to go back!
Best bagels I’ve ever had! My husband and I tried this place recently for the first time and we were amazed. Just be prepared to wait in a bit of a line if you go on weekend. But the staff were very friendly, fast moving and made delicious food. We will definitely be back!
100% recommended!! BEST bagels I’ve ever had my entire life. It is a very popular restaurant in Burlington, all the locals know this place, it’s been around for so many years and it never let us down. There are so many options, you can buy sandwiches, or just dozens of bagels. Clean environment, delicious food, super friendly staff, look no further!!!!! Everything here screams quality.
