If you’ve seen a French toast bagel with birthday cake cream cheese on Instagram, its likely to have come from Tompkins Square Bagel, an East Village hot spot that’s known for its creative spreads. If spreads like bacon and scallion, wasabi, chipotle avocado or olive and pimento don’t wow you, this might: a mac and cheese bagel. In addition to the unique menu offerings, what makes these bagels so special is the method used to make them: every bagel is hand rolled, kettle boiled and baked over wood planks.
