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

I wanted to try this restaurant for quite some time, but due to lack of reservations and long wait times I finally made it in for breakfast here. The food was good.We sampled their fresh baked goods which were tasty and the french toast was good but nothing above average. I also never experienced being charged for coffee refills, which...

They have parking for three cars all of which did not move the whole time we were there. Street parking awful. We walked about a mile down a big hill. So loud you can't hear other talk. Service was very good and food was so so. Would not go back

Hi Janet, I am so disappointed to hear about your experience but appreciate you posting a review. We have tried many times to find a solution for parking with the city or Cornell. The best I can offer you besides rotating street parking out front are the two lots located on Williams street to the left of the building. These... More

If you're looking for a place for breakfast/brunch in the Ithaca area, you should definitely consider going here. The food is absolutely delicious- one of the best meals I've ever had. The brie-stuffed French toast is just incredible. Really good coffee. The ambiance is great- an old carriage house with lots of antiques for decorations, glass-top cafe tables and a... More
