New York is not New York without bagels and lox, which can be tricky for gluten-free eaters. Fortunately, both locals and visitors can find GF bagels at Tompkins Square Bagels in the East Village. Don’t worry, these bagels come with the works: plain cream cheese, traditional lox, full-on eggs-and-bacon sandwiches, and even a variety of nut butters.
Non-gluten-free eaters have tons to choose from as well, as TSB has at least a dozen varieties available on a daily basis. And non-bagel eaters, whoever you are, have lots to choose from as well, from salads to soups to sandwiches.
Tompkins Square Bagels has become a regular spot for me when I’m lucky enough to be in town. This time it was a welcome stop on a quick layover en route to Rome! Where else have you had great gluten-free bagels?
