A family affair: St-Viateur Bagel celebrates 60 years

"'Bagel!' chimed the voice at the other end of the phone line, by way of greeting. I had called St-Viateur Bagel on Monday morning looking for owner Joe Morena, but even before I found him I had found my lede. I mean, what else is there to say?

That’s a lot of years, and a lot of bagels — a lot of bagels made, and a lot of bagels eaten, by you, me and everyone we know. ..."
