great cake, great price – I used tompkins bakery for my wedding after searching for a reasonably priced wedding cake that also tasted good and looked good. my cake was spectacular, tasted amazing, and was not over priced. The selection of flavors was impressive and their flowers looked so real people actually touched them, not believing they were sugar. My sister then used them for her wedding, and her cake was even more beautiful than mine. We also have ordered cupcakes from them on special occasions, and it's all delicious. plus, matthew is so nice and helpful.
Tasty Cookies,Cakes... – Cakes, cookies, ice cream, pastries galore! I have a hard time choosing what to get everytime I step into this bakery. The selection is great and the prices are just right. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I'm always excited for an excuse to come here and always a little sad when I have to leave
Worst Cake EVER!!!!! – I came to this website to find a good bakery for a special birthday cake for a friend, my regular bakery -Amy's Bread did not make the type of cake I wanted. First the bakery itself is extremely unsanitary and there are people coming in and out going behind the counter, etc. I ordered a simple two layer cake ($60), when I picked it up it looked wonderful, however when the cake was cut later at my friend's birthday party it turned out to be overcooked and hard as a brick on the bottom of both layers, also the "buttercream" frosting tasted more like just butter with no sweetness whatsoever, the cake was inedible and the majority was thrown away. To put it mildly I was embarassed and it definitely ruined my friend's special day. Please do not patronize this place, I am not sure what these other posters here experienced, but my friends and I had one HORRIBLE experience.....never again!
Angel Cake from heaven! – I searched all over the web for a bakery that would make an Angel Food cake for my father in-laws 70th birthday (it's his favorite). Tompkins was the only one that said they could make one. I've never been to the bakery nor had I heard of it. I was desperate and needed an Angel Food cake. I ordered it sight unseen and had them deliver it to the restaurant where the party was. The cake was DEeeelish! It was a classic traditional Angel Food Cake. Thank you Tompkins Square Bakery! I can't wait to try the rest of your line. Keep up the delicious work.
Simply the best! – I am a regular customer of pastries, and now a regular customer of cakes! I look forward to occasions simply so I can order one of Matt's fabulous cakes! Matt is super friendly, flexible and very very talented. This bakery is simply the best!!!
Not like in the pictures – After reading the glowing reviews and viewing the beautiful examples both in shop and onlie, we had the highest hopes for our anniversary corporate cake. However, what turned up-- with the exception of structure-- was nothing like we'd envisioned. The writing was amateurish and misspelled and the frosting piping was sloppy, non- concentric and looked to have been done at the last minute. My 10 year old could have done the same with Dec-A-Cake icing. Quite honestly, it looked like it had fallen apart in the van on the way over to us and had been hastily patched up. Lastly, one of the layers was stale to the point of crusty - could barely get a knife through it. It's a real shame as Matt seemed like a very nice and flexible person to deal with. Unfortunately this cake won't soon be going on their advertising hall of fame.
OH-SO-VERY GOOD...YOU GOTTA HAVE IT! – I ordered a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for a party of 20 or so ppl. I ordered it thru Matt, very nice guy and they even delivered it next door to the bar we were having the b-day party at before they closed! My, when it was time to cut the cake, boy, did we cut the cake! It was my ultimate out of this world carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. It was a total hit with everyone! It was just delicious! I'm glad I changed my order from a regular yellow cake with icing to this wonderful carrot cake! You've gotta try the cakes and other pastries here at Tompkins Square Bakery...out of this word!!! Yummmmy...thanks Matt!
Quick service, yummy results – I popped in late in the afternoon after picking up my son from school and order a cake for 8:00 the next morning. I have always enjoyed the coffee while waiting for the M-8 and love the smells wafting out of the door but I was pleasantly surprised by the cake. Simple, moist, delicious. It was for a group that groaned with muffled-mouthful delight. Highly recommended for the cake...I will be testing other treats of the TSB!

Great neighborhood spot – Cute new edition to this block of the E. Vil. The croissants are some of the best I've had and the scones are always a different flavor and always good. Great value on coffee and chocolate cookies too. Highly recommended.
