Great Coffee

Every day in this small store / restaurant several new flavors of coffee are available. I haven't found a flavor yet that I disliked. Wonderful pastries / cookies / sweet treats are also available. Gimme Coffee feels very much like a neighborhood hang out. The name of this restaurant says it... read more

Stopped for an Espresso as we were passing through town. Coffee was good, a bit pricey for the size.

We stopped here for the first time while waiting to eat dinner down the street after seeing the sign when we were parking. This place has a lot of room if want to hang out or do some work!. They have outdoor seating shaded by trees so if it is a hot day you can still be outside. And the... More

A fine roast of coffee and espresso, snacks and sweets (always a gluten-free option or two), local hang-out: yes, this is the place to be for a great cuppa and to chat with friends on the corner. I enjoy the Trumansburg location, too!

I guess I just don't get it. While the atmosphere here is great (super minimal design), my girlfriend and I have tried their coffee multiple times, and it just tastes bad. It tastes weirdly burnt and very different, in a bad way, than any other coffee I've had. I don't know...

This place knows how to make coffee. It is rich with deep flavor, but not at all bitter. The pastries are also very good. We went here a couple of times. I had an almond and lemon curd cake one day and a rhubarb buckle another and both were as good or better than homemade and I am veeery picky... More

Gimme definitely makes the best coffee in Ithaca. They sell coffee that is fair traded, rainforest seal, sustainable and some is even what they call "relationship coffee" (close relationship with small growers). I like trying all the different coffees from all over the world. The staff can be hit or miss, but most are nice if you smile and say... More

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.
