    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!

    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

    The menu is huge, but the line usually is too - so you should have time. If you are here for breakfast you want lox and a smear, or something from the breakfast menu above the kitchen.

    Amazing variety of breakfast, bagels, and spreads. The line goes out the door on weekends, but moves quickly! Grab a bagel and a bench at Tompkins square park to start your morning

    Cash only. A nice chewy bagel, they have a variety of cream cheese spreads. Defined get the lox, the salmon is fatty and goes well with the bagel. There is a nice seating area in the back.

    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.

    Delicious bagels with as many cream cheeses, meats, spreads, and vegetables as I can think of. Try the Nova Lox if you can. Truly phenomenal. The line can get up to 30 minutes, but it's worth it.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Biggest bagels, and almost the best in the city. Fluffy airy inside and crunchy outside. Get creative, but only after getting a classic everything with cc.

    I don't think I'd be satisfied with any other bagel after trying Tompkins. Had the best and most creative bagel here: a French toast bagel with birthday cake cream cheese. Bagel texture was on point.

    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 line...it helps to order

    Very very tasty and a lot of options. I thought the cream cheese ratio was a bit off tho

    Get here early on weekends to avoid long lines. Grab a bagel and iced coffee and go enjoy it in Tompkins Square Park.

    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.

    The bagel perfected. Somehow the blend of flavors on the everything bagel is absolutely ideal every time.

    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

    I almost always get a French toast or whole wheat everything bagel with sundried tomato or veggie cc and lox 😁

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Queues are long, but definitely worth it. Go classic with a toasted everything, scallion cream cheese, lox, and capers 👌

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

    Best bagels in Manhattan. I think they've banged up all but one of my delivery orders - but this guy is worth rolling out of bed over. Long lines are worth the wait.

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

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

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

    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.

    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
