St. Urbain Bagels
Lately, much to my dismay, I've been so busy I've had to buy snacks and meals out. For a broke vegetarian, this is not so easy. (I try to brown-bag it, but I don't even have time to buy groceries).
St. Urbain at the St. Lawrence market to the rescue. Fresh bagels - warm, delicious, and they smell fantastic. You can buy a dozen for a mere 5.25, or you can get a slathering of cream cheese on a fresh one of your choice for 1.75.
May be the cheapest meal on offer at the market. (Though the Chinese joint downstairs ain't bad).
I went all out and did both - I've got half my dozen in the freezer and the other half means hearty sandwiches for me for the rest of the week.
