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

Terrific selection of breakfast and lunch bagels, a menu that takes up the entire wall. Students and tourists fill the place a go to place near the university.

Service was very friendly on a slow, summer morning. Wide variety of food choices, including being able to get lunch foods for breakfast, which my son prefers. Excellent all the way around!

When I inquired about lunch places on the Cornell campus, a Cornell student said, "Take your niece to CollegeTown Bagels" before her tour." I thought. . Bagels? I lived in NYC for many years and good bagels outside of the City are rare; and most shops lack NYC efficiency. We stopped anyway. Yes, they have good bagels, but at lunch... More

I remember CTB when I was at Cornell 25+ years ago... it was just a small place... it's now the anchor place of Collegetown and up to the challenge. We had a great breakfast of bagels, coffee, and tea... yummy all around... and super fast & friendly service... it's a don't miss now!

They do some things really well, but the scrambled eggs taste like they came from the Cornell dining hall. Probably powdered, but if not, it's a close approximation. Really spoils the breakfast wraps. Lines can be long, but don't turn away because of that. Things move along pretty quickly. My advice is to stick to what's in their company name.... More
