This is by far the best bagels in New York they are plump they are fresh they are warm and delicious. A wide variety of bagels with a wide variety of fillings to fill those yummy bagels with. The owner Chris is a sweetheart and the people who work there are very attentive. Highly recommend this bagel store on 2nd Avenue off East12th St. in the East Village.

We were in search of trying bagels from our usual spot in the city. In doing research Tompkins Square rose to the top of the list! We factored stopping at this location during our walk throughout the day, and we are so glad we stopped. The line was long, yet it did move quickly. We only wanted one everything bagel with plain cream cheese, so pretty easy. And yes, even though they say their bagels shouldn't be toasted, we asked for it to be as we like just a tiny bit of crunch to our bagel. An amazing bagel! We love a lot of seasoning on our bagel and this was seasoned on both sides. Loved it; probably now the best bagel we have ever had. Will definitely return AND more than likely will have them shipped through Goldbelly even though that would be at a premium price, However, they store in the freezer perfectly, and sometimes it is just nice for that extra special treat while at home. PS - thanks to the employee who overheard me while standing in line that I was an Out of Order sign on the bathroom door. I really did need to go, and I appreciate him getting the key to unlock the door. Thank you! It made enjoying the bagel that much more enjoyable being comfortable.

This is a no brainer! Friendly, fast and forever remembered. The 5 of us entered Tompkins Square Bagels Avenue A for breakfast. My expectations were not high because I’m a pancake girl! To my surprise the selection of different types of bagels, spreads and choices of meats was overwhelming. Ahmed the manager and perfect leader of this hardworking organized team, assisted me with my order. What an excellent choice we made! My warm chewy soft bagel had great texture with fresh ingredients and seasonings that complimented my choice of sandwich. The portion size was more than ample. Despite the little glitch in the computer, the team remained focused on providing quick and courteous service. This was one of the highlights to my foodie experience while in N.Y. This is a stop in N.Y. I would not miss! 🫶🏽

There was a long line when we got there, but if I’ve learned anything about restaurants, that usually means the food is worth the wait! These bagels were absolutely worth it! The staff was friendly and efficient. They had someone taking orders and handing them off to the kitchen staff, and it kept the line moving pretty quickly. We took our sandwiches across the street to the park and found a bench to sit down and enjoy them. Steaming hot and absolutely delicious! We will definitely return! **gluten free options are available here as well! My boyfriend has celiac disease and didn’t experience any issues!

Really delicious bagels. You can see the chefs preparing all the fresh ingredients: bacon, eggs, choriza, etc. The line was so long I think we may have waited for 30 minutes but it was so worth it. Seemed like most people in there were locals too

After going to Union Square Market for Gluten free bagels at The Gluten Free Bakery and finding them sold out (boo hoo), I was delighted to see TSB had gluten free bagels.....WRONG, they had rocks posing as gluten free bagels. I mean literally rock solid and stale as 2 week old bread. They said they got them from another source but clearly kept them until gone.....I called to complain but have had no response......

The BEST bagels! So much choice with such friendly and helpful staff. The cream cheese selection is amazing. If you have some time in a morning, I 100% recommend this place for breakfast. I had a cinnamon and raisin bagel with cookie dough cream cheese which was just what I needed this morning.

Tompkins Square Bagels serves excellent bagels. However, their selection of vegan (tofu) cream cheeses is not great. I, a vegan, had an everything bagel with tofu vegetable cream cheese. My friend, a carnivore, had a sesame bagel with dairy cream cheese and lox. I'd patronize Tompkins Square Bagels if I was in the area, but would not go out of my way for it.

Bagels were good and so much to choose from, fillings wise. They do gluten free bagels which was amazing, nowhere to sit inside which was a little disappointing. Bagels tasted really good though just very dense and filling.

I first found out about this spot because of Timothee Chalamet-(Timothee if you're reading this I LOVE U) and I had to give it a try. Let me just tell you, this bagel shop went above and beyond my expectations. I got crispy bacon and an egg on an everything bagel and it was AMAZING. 1000/10 recommend.

We had breakfast bagels here earlier this week and they were decent. The bacon egg, lettuce, tomato and cheese bagel I had was very good. There wasn't as much bacon on it as the one I had the day before at another shop. Both my wife and daughter enjoyed their bagel with cream cheese. It's all take out right now but there are tables outside.

Unfortunately, my bagel was dry and stale. Maybe it was left over from the previous day. We got it take out left, otherwise, I’d have returned it. Someone else got a bagel here and their’s was quite good. For that reason, I'll rate this average.

Amazing spot. Even though it was busy, the service was fast. I ordered 4 bagel with lox and cheese cream. They gave it to me and my friends in 20 mins. Great staff who knew how to deal with.

Honestly skip it. The manager is rude, a yeller. Not a good way to start the day. They have always been kind of inefficient but the owner used to hang around and smooth the edges. Now they have someone I don't recognize and he yells and waves his arms. if I wanted to eat with Archie Bunker I'd turn on the TV.

Really delicious bagels. Way bigger than necessary for my little Irish stomach. I didn't need to eat again for 10 hours so great value. Friendly service, quick and easy to get your food. Perfect breakfast on the go.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
