    One of our favorite bagel places in the city - we love to order an everything bagel with lox spread. The gluten free bagels here are not to be missed, along with their creative cream cheese flavors.

    Whenever I need an excellent bagel in the East Village, this is the first place I go. Everything they make is outstanding – especially the Lox and Whitefish. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Their egg sandwiches are out of this world. And of course, don't leave without trying the birthday cake cream cheese! They also had pumpkin on the menu, but sadly were sold out!

    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.

    Lactose intolerant? There's a condiment for that: TOFU! Always check for the new amazing cream cheese mixes in the case as you walk in prior to getting to the end of the long helps to order

    Everything's good, folks. There's a soup and bagel deal. We got 2 cinnamon raisin bagels w cream cheese & jelly, 2 chicken & vege soups, a sweet potato pie & a Boylan black cherry soda for $21. Bliss

    Worth the wait in line.. The Koch bagel was a bit too creamy but very tasty, with crunchy onions and pastrami. The bagels themselves are of astounding quality!

    Don't be scared off by the line -- these bagels are worth the wait! Plus, awesome customer service. When they forgot part of my order, they offered free pastry and coffee with sincere apologies.

    Don't be fooled if there's no one in line ahead of you- it will still take absurdly long to get your order and it will most likely be wrong. The food is good but they need to get their act together.

    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.

    Best bagels in the village, let alone probably manhattan! They say they recommend not toasting, but I happen to like the extra crunch it provides. Get anything and you won't be sorry

    Even with 4+ people behind the counter and fewer than 3 customers they still manage to take over 15min to get a bagel and some cold cuts. No end in sight. I'm sure they'll get it wrong too.

    Great open-air patio out back, friendly service, good food, cool artwork. Surprisingly big inside & not overly packed w/ppl. Good for studying or getting some work done.

    Great atmosphere, delicious bagels, and stumptown coffee. This place dethroned ess-a as the best in the hood. Try the wasabi cream cheese. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    There will always be a line, just accept it. Wait on it, order your food and after the first bite you realize it was worth every second.Open for breakfast and lunch.

    This overhyped shop I've tried three times now. Always I feel like they throw all the food together. If you have any allergies stay away unless you want to pay ten bucks for something inedible.

    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.

    Good service, they move the line along quickly. Can get crowded in the late morning so come around 9 AM on the wknd.

    This is a bagel Mecca. Just get one of their special cream cheese spreads if it's your first time. The baked salmon spread is also a great choice.

    Come in late morning-ish, take a seat at the bar in front of the kitchen, and watch as they hand make delicious bagels the size of oversize guinea pigs.

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

    This place is cash only but hot dang!! No more trekking past 14th street for a legit bagel. Get the everything bagel, toasted with lox spread. You're welcome.

    This weekend at TSB the Spicy Tuna Bagel will be unleashed! Sushi grade yellowfin with fresh wasabi cream cheese. No, we ain't playin' games over here!

    the absolute best whole-wheat-everything bagel with scallion cream cheese. Use seamless if you don't want to wait in the RIDICULOUS morning 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

    French toast bagel with egg and cheese?!?!!!??!!!!!! I would say the only way to go but anything here would be AMAZING

    Every bagel is amazing, you can't go wrong. I usually try the special in order to always get something new and have never been disappointed.

    Almost daily breakfast during the time in NYC. Not just the bagels are great, also the coffee is nice! Miss it!

    The Chittle on Whole Wheat Everything bagel on Sunday mornings. Tip: get there before 9am to avoid the line

    bagels are fantastic and they serve Stumptown Coffee - so happy to have this in the neighborhood! UPDATE - Now serving La Colombe. Still awesome.

    Literally the best bagel I've eaten ever. Also amazing breakfast burrito! They have a decent selection of tofu cream cheese flavors as well.

    Best bagels in the neighborhood, but not in the city. Lines can be long, but move swiftly. FYI: they only toast bagels if you ask.

    Their everything bagel has everything on it (including but not limited to: French fries, A-1 Steak Sauce, that shitty Halloween candy you never eat, vintage Star Wars toys).

    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.

    Breakfast bagels are delicious! Large variety of bagels that are made fresh daily with lots of different options from their homemade cream cheese to a classic bacon egg and cheese.

    **SPRING 2016 UPDATE** If you were thinking one of your favorite special bagels on the WE, don't show up before 1pm, they only serve egg, lox or cc before. total disappointment :/

    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!

    Best kept off-menu secret: the "something…anything!" bagel, similar to the everything bagel but they just put something, anything in it.

    Lines can be long but the bagels are worth it. Try their bacon and herb House made cream cheese.

    It's not a good idea to order from this place (talking about Seamless or phone orders), better come get your bagels in person to avoid constant mix-ups and more than 2 hours wait.

    French Toast Bagel quite good. But of crunch on the outside and nice and soft on the inside

    Out of everything bagels at 8:45 am on a 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.

    Our favorite spot to get bagels. This place is consistently a shit show though. Super busy. Expect to wait, but it's worth it.

    Never get the bagels toasted. They're always fresh and hot off the belt. Bacon, egg and cheese on a whole wheat everything wins. Every. Single. Time.

    The bagels have now been perfected. Deep brown, perfect crust , chewy doughy inside. Try one with wasabi cream cheese and fresh Nova!

    Line is intimidating but moves fast. Portions huge. Wholewheat everything is an excellent option.

    Anytime of day is bagel time when you're close to TSB. Cash only, and you'll want to bring lots of it. Fave ABC bagels.
