Ithaca Bakery (IB to locals) has several locations, including CTB (College Town Bagel). The triphammer location is a favorite for my breakfast meetings for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. When I'm avoiding grains, I stop at the downtown location for their hot/cold bar - I can always get some quick fresh and locat products -eggs, quiche and sausage in the... More

Decided to try a breakfast place in town, and this jumped out based on the TA reviews. Definitely not close enough to walk from the two major college campuses. We were pleasantly surprised at the breakfast selection and speed in which our orders were prepared. Our breakfasts tasted decent with fresh ingredients. Moderate prices, cheerful service, and friendly crowd. The... More

If you can spare a couple of hours.... and a lot of change..... this is a good place for sandwiches, soup, and/or prepared foods that you can take to go. It's a great place for Ithacans because there are vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian choices to go with carnivorous fare. Bakery items are usually tasty, but if you're a downstater,... More

while visiting friend in town, I went here for lunch. Hard to make up my mind with such a large array of choices. My sandwich was very good, with fresh & delicious whole-grain bread. don't know if I'll ever be back to Ithaca, but this bakery makes me wish I lived there--I could spend a year working my way thru...

The wonderful Ithaca Bakery blends cozy with contemporary, in a small warmly lit deli style atmosphere, with hot food and soup selections, using often locally sourced items, many inspired sandwich selections, a full selection of amazing bakery treats, breads and bagels, in addition to a full service coffee bar. There are interesting food and snack items surrounding you in the... More

I don't mind paying $9 for a lox and bagel as long as I get more than one sixteenth of the slice of lox on each half. I come to the Ithaca bakery frequently but..... don't ever order the lox and bagels. They only give you 1 slice of lox and when you pay $9 you should have more than... More

Everything here is great! This is a nice spot for casual dining. Lots of choices for breakfast/lunch type sandwiches and salads. The main shop has menus at the door now which speeds up the ordering process since it's not always easy to read the blackboard menus overhead. The baked goods are wonderful., too!

Stopped after during a day trip to the area. This is a semi-self serve restaurant. A large selection of bake goods, drink's and sandwiches. There is also a buffet of side dishes, etc. You get a menu at the door, order at the counter (different counters for sandwiches, baked goods, etc.). Once you order, if you are staying there, they...
