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.

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...
