Meet Steven, driver-partner, father, and bagel shop owner

August 23, 2017 / Montreal

If you’re looking for a recommendation of where to eat in Montreal, Steven is your man. Not only is he a self-proclaimed foodie, Steven has been the proud owner of Dizz’s Bagel & Deli for over 22 years. A family owned and operated business, Dizz’s Bagel & Deli produces approximately 75 dozen bagels every day. Hungry? Us too.

Passionate about bagels, his favourite type depends on his mood. Most days he’ll stick to a pumpernickel or all-dressed bagels. But if he’s feeling like a classic, he’ll devour a sesame bagel. As a creative and innovative business owner, he’s regularly turning to social media to look for new flavor ideas. If you decide you need a snack immediately after reading this, we recommend the cannoli bagel, a favourite among his regulars.

When Steven isn’t lovingly crafting some of the best bagels Montreal has to offer, you can find him helping the fine people of Montreal get around the city. His favorite thing about driving is getting to meet new people, talk about the city he loves, and share stories that’ll make his riders laugh. Steven enjoys playing tour guide and will jump at the occasion to show off his favorite spots to visitors.

And because the early bird gets the worm, Steven is known to sign on to drive as early as 2am to get those riders heading home after a night out on the town or pick up newly arrived guests at the airport. Having traveled around the world, Steven has decided that there’s no place quite as hip and easy going as Montreal.
