My friend used to work at Gimme Coffee and the first time I had it was at her house made via french press. Ever since then, I've been hooked! Best coffee in Ithaca.

Just another coffeeshop ? Yes, but this one has the best coffee by far in Ithaca ! Plenty of possibilities to plug in and work quietly .

This is probably my favorite "go to place" for coffee in downtown Ithaca. The staff is really friendly and I just like the vibe in there.. plus the coffee is also really good.

Excellent coffee quality, love African coffees and they have a good selection. I do think it's better than Starbucks by far. However, I feel they're a bit understaffed though and sometimes it can take a while to get your beverage. It's a good place to go and study or work, tends to be quiet. I also wish they had more...

Considering prices are about the same as Starbucks and the Coffee Roaster a block down the street, I don't know why anyone would buy coffee here. Coffee was mediocre and the place was not very clean.

Perhaps there are too many coffee houses, and Gimmie! no longer makes the grade, at least here in the home town of Ithaca. I used to be a regular, drinking everything from drip coffee and espresso to (attempts at) cappuccino. I had become so loyal a customer that it took me some months to realize that I had been paying... More

I only got a quick basic take out on an early Saturday morning. There was no line, no wait. The coffee had a good strong taste, but nothing acid tasting to go along with it. It was very smooth and delicious.

I'm a small batch coffee/espresso snob. I find that I enjoy their drinks but only in there locations. I've tried making coffee at home with their beans but it just doesn't taste nearly as good. I'm vegan and have a soy intolerance so I have to bring an alternative plant mylk with me. They are always great about accommodating my... More

I order cappuccino's at Gimme and they are always perfect, never fail - excellent temperature, quality, richness, smooth - not acidic, not too much milk ( well a bit too much milk for me) , really nice dense froth. No complaints and I travel the world for good coffee - and worked as a barista for six years. The service... More
