I've never had a bad meal here

Every time we come to Ithaca, we stop by and eat at Ithaca Bakery. We grabbed a couple of bagels for the drive home. One of them was heaven after 3 hours of driving, would have been even better fresh. I also had the grilled cheese with bacon, yummy!

Went for coffee with a friend. I come often, almost every week, in the middle of the day. Many people do. The coffee is OK, whatever, does not matter but can the people who bring food to tables wear cleaner aprons and look more groomed? Can the bathrooms be renovated? Can you clean the tables after the patrons leave? The... More

We found out why this place is always busy, its the quality of their foods! You won't be disappointed by eating here, very good croissant sandwiches, very good selection of bagels, and very tasty selection of coffees and tea. Plus they are extremely concerned about the environment and recycle as much refuse as possible.

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
