This place is a gem. A combination of granny's kitchen and a friendly place where young staff make all customers feel young too. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful small authentic place in a trendy neighbourhood. Mainly local people away from the tourist streams. You will find a huge variety of freshly made pastries, pies, cookies and bagels with different fillings. They also serve the famous local sirup in 34 different flavours, Swiss limonade made in in Belinzona and lots of other specialities which you will not... More

In a lovely part of Bern. Staff were very friendly and helpful and happy to explain the menu in English. Bagels, hot chocolate and cakes very yummy!

Sitting on the street in early March sunshine with a yummy bagel, a super tasty browny and a cup of mint tea - what could be better? Take bus 12 from the city centre and you're there in a jiffy! But beware, as it is so good that crowds are sure to gather from far and wide.

It's hard to find a bawl in Switzerland that was not packaged in plastic. tingel kringel has bagels including sesame and herb flavors and even an "everything" bagel. They are softer than the real New York version and the crust doesn't have the crunch that it should but it is a pleasant reminder of what a bagel tastes like, despite... More

If you're craving a bagel in Bern, this is the place. The selection isn't as broad as in New York, but they've got all the basics. I usually get something brunchy, like salmon or roast beef. For dessert, there's a fab lemon meringue pie and all sorts of other temptations, including mini-sized treats that are perfect with coffee.

The owners of the tingel kringel are doing the best cakes and bagels in and around Berne ;). Always fresh and always delicious. You definitely have to taste the chocolate cake with "sauerkirschen"!!!

Here you can everything your heart desires! This is small café/bakery which feels like an oasis you can escape to for a few minutes. They have great bagels, amazing coffee and a wide arrange of home-made cakes, brownies and cookies. Everything tastes mind-blowingly amazing! You can tell that everything was made with love and a lot of attention to detail.... More

So, I have waited some time to give Tingel Kringel a chance to get warmed up. The bagels are really good. It gives you several possibilities of choice for bagels and fillings. However, twice I have left the place because of the time it takes them to prepare, not only your custom made bagel, but ANYTHING! This is not acceptable.... More
