4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014 NEW

The food is quite fresh, very good, and depending on what you get,very filling. Prices are a little hefty but it's understandable because it's in the center of a college town. And quite frankly, for the quality of food that is served, it's with it. Service can be very slow because it's nearly always packed, even on a Sunday morning!... More

The hotel clerk suggested this place and was glad he did. I'm not much of a breakfast person but this place was great. Tons of options for breakfast and lunch. I opted for an everything bagel with dream cheese and raspberry jalapeno jam. YUM. My wife, who loves coffee said it was one of the best cups of coffee she's... More

so many sandwiches to choose from. The sandwiches, especially the Sweet Rachel, are tasty and quickly made. The lattes, etc take too much time. If in a rush, just order bagel or sandwich and coffee, no espresso drinks. The bagels with lox is my favorite. Several locations. Popular with college crowd.

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
