Hand rolled , kettle boiled bagels in the heart of the East Village. We batch our dough fresh daily. Everything at TSB is made to order and cooked on the spot in our open kitchen.
Order this: sausage, egg, and cheese on a toasted everything bagel with hot sauce. You're welcome.
This place is CASH ONLY (their cash only signs are very easy to miss). The food here is delicious though and they have a large selection of bagels, cream cheese, and drinks.
I love their jalapeño cream cheese on an onion/garlic bagel
The vegan cookie looks nice, but does not taste like it
You can also create your own bagel by just naming the ingredients you'd like to have on. The price rises faster though...
amazing bacon egg and cheese! cash only
My favorite bagel in NYC. Great smear options and very friendly staff. Cash Only.
So worth the line
Any bagel you get is great. It's not worth coming late on weekend mornings though... The line is too long. Come later in the day or on a weekday
Bacon egg and cheese on everything bagel. Game over.
Delicious bagels, but double-check that they gave you the right order. On busy weekends, it's pretty common to get handed the wrong bagel.
Alan Cumming comes here! Life is a gluten-filled cabaret, old chum.
Cash only - won't be back
Get coffee at 9th St Espresso or OST to help you endure the line. It's gross here anyway.
This place is my spot. Egg bagel!
The bagel perfected. Somehow the blend of flavors on the everything bagel is absolutely ideal every time.
We've tried many a bagel, but Tompkins is our favourite (so far). Skip all the specialty sandwich offerings (which are a bit stingy in servings) and go for walnut raisin cream cheese or roast beef.
try a bagel with Birthday cake cream cheese or Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cream cheese $3.85
Crowded but worth it. And the line moves fast. Service is very friendly too. Sesame bagel with scallion cream cheese, lox and cucumber is a staple order.
the "everything pumpernickel" is not always listed but you def want to give it a try. Pairing well with tuna salad or Chittle if you're hungry!
Try the jalapeño cheddar cream cheese-- perfect balance of salty and spicy.
the weezer - bacon, chorizo, egg, cheddar, & bacon scallion cream cheese
Nice fluffy bagels. Cash only. Avoid on weekend mornings when all the yuppies converge. The line is much shorter on weekdays.
Really nice vegan tofu cream cheese (olive tofu spread, woo!)
I still think the bagels could do with a little toasting, but that's just me.
Our favorite spot to get bagels. This place is consistently a shit show though. Super busy. Expect to wait, but it's worth it.
NSFW: whole wheat, eggs, bacon, avocado (+$1.50)
Huge variety of bagels. The service could improve a lot.
Before 10am on the weekend this place is amazing. Otherwise the line probably isn't worth it
This place makes such great bagels. Get there early on the weekends to beet the crowd
One of the best additions to the neighborhood in years.
Whole Wheat Everything with veggie cream cheese
Lots of crazy options, but I stick to the basics - everything bagel with plain CC. Line is insane on weekends
Get the chipotle chicken salad, the best in the city
Every bagel lovers wet dream.
One of the best bagel spots downtown. If you want something other than a schmear, try the Grieve.
Long line. So worth the wait. The bacon egg and cheese bagels are the best bargain, as the sandwiches are kind of pricey.This place is extremely fresh.
Great bagels, horrible salads (tuna, whitefish, etc.)
Shitty service and the gluten free bagels are not good at all.
Banana and Nutella bagel is great!
WASABI CREAM CHEESE
Out of everything bagels at 8:45 am on a Wednesday...wtf? Ess-A-Bagel's sausage egg and cheese tasted way better. I'm hoping it was a fluke because other reviews are raving. I'll try it one more time.
Excellent bagels, expect to wait in line for a while.
Love their gluten free bagels!!! Worth the line
They have a vast array of bagels in this establishment 😍
Wasabi Cream Cheese
The worse carrot cake that i've ever ate. How can it be this much bad? And also coffees are bad, too.
Slowest fucking place ever
