Man was this place crazy on a Sunday afternoon

We used TripAdivisor to go here for lunch. We had no idea what a hot spot it turned out to be. We were in a bit of a hurry so we limited our choices to a portion of the menu but there is a ton of stuff to choose. Great sandwiches.

Tasty bagels with a wide variety of breakfast choices. Good coffee, great place to meet and chat. Space is a little tight , but welcoming to people of all ages.

Stop, Drop and Dine could the the motto of this super little deli/bakery. We were very hungry towards dusk as we neared our destination (a bed and breakfast in the Ithica/Cornell University area)...and spotted the Ithica Bakery near closing time. We found a convenient parking spot, headed inside and we're delighted with the deli and bakery choices. Good prices for... More

If you can squeeze yourself into a table spot (or not) this is a great place for brunch. Huge selection of bagels and sandwiches with anything that takes your fancy they have it. Excellent food and coffee if you're not in a hurry at peak times.. Check out the cutlet sandwich...

Super selection of bagels and you will not be disappointed Over rated otherwise with rest of selections - extremely pricey and most bake goods did not look fresh You can get more for your buck at wegmans We are probably just very spoiled with the great bakeries in WNY - i.e Eileen's / Di camillos/ Elm St bakery .......

Great place not only for baked goods (they have amazing bread!), but also for breakfast and lunch. They also make good drinks, basically a great breakfast and lunch spot!

I stop in at the Ithaca Bakery most mornings, sometimes for coffee, sometimes for breakfast, sometimes to pick up something for lunch, and sometimes for bread. The Bakery makes a real commitment to sourcing local ingredients, especially the meats which show up in the breakfast buffet and the array of sandwiches (breakfast sandwiches and otherwise). It is often humming, but... More

This was our second trip to Ithaca Bakery. Despite the decidedly yuppie feel, the food is outstanding and the selection amazing.
