I have eaten at the downtown location and it was fantastic. I didn't realize at the time there was one on East Hill Plaza which is closer to where I work. The Online ordering is very convenient so you don't have to wait in line, because they get very busy! Great food but you may need to wait if you... More

If you can avoid the crowds then try to do so, but even tough this place is so good and popular and the lines go out the door, the service was surprisingly quick and efficient. The bagels are excellent. I loved the overwhelming variety of cream-cheese flavors and sandwich choices, and the coffee was very good as well. It is... More

East Hill Collegetown Bagels is tucked away in East Hill Plaza. There are very few breakfast alternatives in that part of town so this place can be very crowded and noisy in the am. There is limited seating inside and outside on a side walk that overlooks a parking lot. If you like that kind of noisy, chaotic morning vibe,... More

We were walking the beautiful waterfall gorges in Ithaca itself, and happened upon Collegetown Bagels as we were heading back to the car. Very busy inside (usually a good sign of quality that customers line up for something), my wife and I each got a bagel, double-toasted just as we asked, and the way we like them, and shared a...

The sandwiches are outrageously good. So glad we each ordered a different one so we could share. Surrounded by young folks and with our son we had a marvelous lunch outside.

I was surprised that the place hadn't changed since I was there last ( and that was 12 years ago). Then I bit into my sandwich and was reminded that there was nothing to change. The food is as good today as it was years ago. Pretty typical bagel shop with a variety of creative sandwiches. Delicious! And cookies and... More

On a recent first trip to Ithaca, we were very pleased to find Collegetown Bagels for a quick and easy lunch. Fun, casual atmosphere, with a wall full of bagel and sandwich options of all kinds. Plenty of options for vegetarians. Service was a little slower than expected since we were there on what seemed to be the tail end... More

CTB is a well beloved stop in Collegetown for breakfast and brunch, and even for meals throughout the day. The outdoor seating is perfect for those balmy summer days, and is equally charming at night with all the string lights on. The food is on point as well - a huge variety of sandwiches, wraps, bagels, paninis, and other baked... More
