Great Stop!

We have passed through Ithica a few times on our way up to Seneca Lake and love each visit to the Ithaca Bakery. It's a great stop for getting sandwiches for the long ride home and a great stop on your way up to the lakes to stock up on local cheeses. Great deli ++

We stopped here for a late brunch on a Sunday when visiting Ithaca. It is a combination bakery, small market and sandwich shop. The sandwich menu was extensive. Written in chalk on the wall behind the counter, it is difficult to read, but look for the basket of menus which divide up the choices nicely according to type of meat,... More

They have a very broad range of sandwiches like no other place in Ithaca including an assortment of vegetarian and vegan options. Their breads are delicious. The prices are very reasonable. However, I have been there several times for the buffet only to find dried out warm options and once a lukewarm soup which I wondered if it was hot... More

We got the breakfast buffet at 8.99/lb some coffee and danishes. Everything was very good. It has a somewhat urban feel with patrons buzzing everywhere. The staff was nice/helpful and most important.... The coffee was good!

It is really amazing how many people gather here for conversation and snacks. I personally find this gathering spot a bit on the pricey side. The bagels are O.K., but not of down-state quality. The lines can be long. The atmosphere can feel a little frenetic, depending on the time of day. The service feels slow and disorganized. Although it... More

Great place to eat, meet, & share a conversation. Good food at a good price value. Stop often for both a "grab & go" or sit & eat when time allows. Not perfect, but have never been seriously disappointed, walk in the door without hesitation, Can be crowded at time Ithaca folks know a good thing when we see it.

Not only is it open 24 hours a day, but Ithaca Bakery offers every kind of sandwich, bagel, bread, treat, beverage, sweet, etc., that you could want. All ingredients are fresh and yummy. They have some very interesting sandwich combinations and are made fresh. You will definitely find something to satisfy your palate--and you'll be back!
