Good coffee

The shop was crowded when I went. Lots of college students who looked like they would be at their given tables for the remainder of the day working on their laptops. However, the coffee was good and the atmosphere was fun. If you could manage to get a seat outside, this would be a fun place to... read more

Cafe's can abound in a place that favors such things but Gimme Coffee has a way with the java brew that sets it apart from the rest. You owe it to yourself to visit Gimme at least once!

enjoyed the coffee and pastry and sitting on the outside patio. Very popular with the local folk which tells you a lot of being good

If you are craving the urban chic of a truly great coffee spot, this is it! Professional baristas with brew you up any version of caffeine you could wish for. Great espresso. All beans roasted locally. It's my favorite spot.

Arguably the best coffee in town. Roast their own beans. Comfortable surroundings. Stay as long as you like.

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 all. This is not at all like other chain... More

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

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!
