Fresh and Delicious

I have only been here a couple of times, the food has always been fresh and delicious. The restaurant environment and wait staff are just what I am looking for while dining our with family or friends! This is the place I recommend to everyone who visits the Ithaca area.

The long lines and unique atmosphere are as original as the food variations, scones and locally grown ingredients. Get there early though the line can be really long, and ask the owners to consider one change?? Charging for coffee refills, who does that, especially in Ithaca. These type of minor annoyances that better make the rest of dining experience come... More

I have had two absolutely perfect meals here. Their menu is constant but offers different variations of the dishes each week. They serve Copperhorse coffee.. excellent brew, grab a bag. You will enjoy the good service and carriage house like environment (coincidence right?)

My family of 5 came here for brunch and I thoroughly enjoyed my sconwich. The mimosa and bloody Mary my other family members had looked good too! It’s set in a oldish building with lots of charm and decorated for Christmas enhanced the scene.

Great place to get a full breakfast, many options, I like they support the farmers and also create this kind of fancy menu for breakfast , I loved the French toast with Brie cheese, the place is a little expensive but it seems like they use old quality products that makes it fair...

We enjoyed a wonderful brunch, perhaps one of the best ever. I hear weekends the wait can be long, but since we went on weekday was not really an issue. The French toast was amazing as was the omelette. Coffee was just right. Charming dinning room, nice staff. But as you maybe be able to tell it was the scones... More

Visited with my wife and daughter, an IC student, for Sunday Brunch. Amazing. First arrive early as people show up 15 minutes before opening at 9. We were seated promptly and professionally and the overall service was beyond reproach As to the food it was not your basic faire. We ordered the Brie stuffed French Toast, the Pate Plate and...

Aaron was so accommodating for me, it was my wife's birthday and I wanted to do something special for her. Aaron provided a dessert that simply made the day unforgettable. To say he went above and beyond just simply doesn't do justice to his effort........the service at this restaurant is simply second to none! I highly recommend it, thanks again... More

Arrived at 845 for 9 a.m. opening -12 people deep line! That's always a good sign. The staff were very friendly, service was excellent, food exceptional. Brie stuffed French toast - perfect texture and flavor. Daily special pancake with apple/ginger compote -also perfect texture and taste. Will return from for sure!

Didn't get to taste the food because the wait was beyond reasonable. Must be popular. I would suggest getting there as early as possible unless you like to wait a long time for breakfast/Brunch
