    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.

    You can also create your own bagel by just naming the ingredients you'd like to have on. The price rises faster though...

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Nice fluffy bagels. Cash only. Avoid on weekend mornings when all the yuppies converge. The line is much shorter on weekdays.

    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.
