A quaint place that seemed to be very popular and offer a lot of services, including a cafe and lots of drink options. I just stopped in for a snack and had a delicious baklava.

Ithaca bakery has both excellent sandwiches and salads. The bread they have is awesome. Don't forget to check out the desserts as well.

Ithaca bakery is a good place to enjoy s cup of coffee.The atmosphere is nice and the coffee is top notch. I is also a good place to get a beagle or breakfast sandwich. I have had many other food items there that I wasn't impressed with. Many of the cookies and cakes are dry and never taste as good... More

Over a dozen years ago, my (now ex-) spouse and I discovered the Finger Lakes Region, including a favorite B & B south of Ithaca, lots of wineries (of course) and the Ithaca Bakery. More often than not, we'd load up for our daily wine excursion at the bakery, with bread, meats and cheeses. What I would give for an... More

Most accessible and quick place to eat in the flats of downtown and healthier than a fast food take-out. Ithaca Bakery is much more than a bakery..although they have an abundance of breads, cakes and cookies. There's an open salad and hot food bar, two stations for ordering custom wraps and sandwiches, and a catering station. Prices are reasonable and... More

We stopped in since it has stood the test of time and was still thriving. They have done a great job of adapting and making this a college-town hip-eclectic place to eat. There were multiple counters to get sandwiches and bagels, but they really had a little of everything. It was a fun and lively atmosphere and it was super... More

I drove four hours to visit my dear friend, Alice. I just came here for the day. A long drive, but worth it. So Alice treated me to lunch. I had Ira's Fish, a sandwich of smoked salmon cream cheese, scrambled eggs, sprouts, and capers. It was great! I had a cappuccino with it. My dear friend had a ham... More
