Nice local bakery

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

Great place to eat, meet, & share a conversation. Good food at a good price value. Stop often for both a "grab & go" or sit & eat when time allows. Not perfect, but have never been seriously disappointed, walk in the door without hesitation, Can be crowded at time Ithaca folks know a good thing when we see it.

Not only is it open 24 hours a day, but Ithaca Bakery offers every kind of sandwich, bagel, bread, treat, beverage, sweet, etc., that you could want. All ingredients are fresh and yummy. They have some very interesting sandwich combinations and are made fresh. You will definitely find something to satisfy your palate--and you'll be back!

Extensive sandwich menu from simple breakfast bites to hearty stackers. Great breads and bakery items and desserts. Fun packaged gourmet foods for sale as well. Gets very busy sometimes so be prepared.

Stopped by on a Sunday for lunch. Just visiting Ithaca for a short weekend and read about the Ithaca Bakery. We had 2 vegetarian sandwiches which were just ok. Perhaps it was our menu choice, however, many restaurants make great vegetarian sandwiches. Left feeling somewhat disappointed. Service was pleasant as was the atmosphere.

Great food, great atmosphere....if you've been to Philadelphia Reading Market, think mini version. Open seating, order and take a number to display on your table or counter for delivery. Great selection of deli sandwiches, full cafe options (awesome raspberry truffle latte) and did we mention the bakery? (The giant oatmeal raisin cookies are to die for). If you visit Ithaca... More

Great food with lots of prepared food to go to make at home. Excellent soups and inventive sandwiches. Best bagles and bialys in town... as a matter of fact, the only "real" bagles and the only bialys in town. Don't know what a bialy is? It's a cross between a bagle and an english muffin. Try one (has to be... More
