Quick Breakfast Stop and A Little More

It is bagels, soups, sandwiches, desserts and a variety of hot and cold coffee drinks. All served with a smile and all delicious!! Hot spot for area college students and their families.

Worth the wait for a great sandwich! Local hangout for a chat and chew, if you can find a seat. Extensive sandwich menu or concoct your own . Take home some specialty bread for tomorrow or some pastries for the deck. Not to be missed!

Lotsa good sandwiches. Not cheap. Still, a nice alternative to the every day fast food fix that we've all grown accustomed. Parking sucks - no way I'd ever park on Meadow St with traffic whizzing by. And the parking lot on Court (?) St is way too small to accommodate the customer flow.

Locaks, tourists and transplants all enjoy Ithaca Bakery. It is the standard by which others are measured. A great spot not just for bakery items, but anything that many delis or cafeterias might have. Do t let those simple word pictures fool you. Ithaca Bakery has some of the best specialty sandwiches and coffee drinks anywhere. Far beyond Starbucks, they... More

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 ++
