Good food, fair prices. This location does not have salads.

We liked the Cuban sandwich and the soups. The frosted Rice Krispie treats were awesome! We went for lunch one day and it was very crowded. We stopped in another evening and it was very quiet, but still nice.

Ask anyone in Ithaca where to buy bagels, and you will inevitably be led to this gem. While the popularity and extensive menu may strike your fancy, in reality, the food is overpriced, and the smoothies are insanely overpriced. Ultimately, Collegetown Bagels (owned by Ithaca Bakery) is overpriced because no competition exists. In the same vein, their preparation time for... More

Ithaca Bakery looks like it should have great sandwiches, but in two visits here (once last summer and once a few days ago, on 7/24) left me disappointed. I see that this place is highly rated here but I honestly don't see how. There's this really cool sandwich board, and the descriptions are mouth-watering, but my Octopus sandwich - a... More

So sorry. The hype does not match the reality. An extensive menu and huge crowds do not guarantee wholesome food. Our family met there on a Sunday just before noon for a light meal. The lines were so long that two of our group had to leave before ordering to make another commitment. Three of our group went in search... More

We visited here on Tuesday for lunch. This place was crowded, cramped, and crazy. We walked in from the rear parking area and there were family tables cramped in the small space ten inches from the restroom door that you literally had to push the chairs through where people were sitting and eating to access the restroom. That's not a... More

Since I now live in sw, one of my priorities was to enjoy an authentic ny bagel. Ithaca bakery did not disappoint. Bagels and cream cheese amazing. Only negative issue is that bathroom was filthy gross

Great sandwiches and smoothies! Something for everyone to enjoy - we stopped in here three times in a three day trip to Ithaca. Good vegetarian options, a few were vegan, and lots for the meat eaters. Popular spot, active. I enjoyed the watermelon lemonade made with mint and honey, the Cayuga sandwich and a vegan sandwich.

One cannot go wrong at the Ithaca Bakery. With a wide variety of choices to satisfy any craving. They also feature a wide selection of gluten-free options. The Big Sur on a Long Island bagel is heavenly!!

I ate several lunches at the Ithaca Bakery off N Triphammer Road. The lunch offerings were numerous and inventive. What an amazing assortment of sandwiches to choose from. Wish I had more time to try some more of their delicious food.

While my daughter was busy at new student orientation, I headed out to get a feel for the area. I got hungry and just happened to pass ithaca bakery and decided I'd turn around and get some lunch! I was not disappointed! The selection of specialty sandwiches was so extensive I asked the gentleman helping me to make a suggestion.... More
