Leonard (& Adam) Cohen And The Bagel – Montreal

quoteup2
Leonard Cohen was and always will be a great friend of the Bagel, but unfortunately Leonard doesn’t hang out in Montreal anymore. When he was here, you’d always find Leonard sitting at the bar having his allongé. The nicest, sweetest guy, and again, part of the family. He never wanted to talk about himself. He would want to talk about you: ‘How are you my friend?’ Adam [Cohen, Leonard’s son] also comes in when he’s in town, with his band. He hangs out, is very quiet, but if you ask him for a little favour, an autograph, he’s always happy to oblige as Leonard is 

[What does Leonard Cohen get for breakfast?] Leonard is a very simple man. A couple of eggs, some bacon, a bagel, an allongé. But usually just his coffee, a couple of coffees he likes. Very sweet man, very cool. We don’t make a big, deal, he doesn’t make a big deal. Again, it’s a variety of people who come in here.. quotedown2
