It has the best bagel egg, cheese and sausage sandwiches and it is so nice to come to here for breakfast on a nice sunny morning. Don't miss some of their baked goods before all the college kids buy them out. Grab one of the outdoor tables and people watch. It is a nice place to just sit back and... More

Some of the best bagel sandwiches in Ithaca, I love them. Bagels are always fresh and the food is always delicious. Little pricey. Great Coffee also.

CTB is an Ithacan classic. The atmosphere is chill and very fun. It's great for breakfast and also for drinks on the patio.

No one wants to be average. Yet a "very good" rating carries some responsibility for me. Kudos for a friendly staff (on East Hill), an enormous variety of choices for breakfast or lunch, very decent coffee tried black, and what looked like some very nice artisanal breads. But we had lox and bagels for breakfast. We are only 225 miles... More

Tried to have lunch at the Collegetown location. Wasted $5 on so called Greek wrap, which was supposed to include scrambled eggs. Yes, there was so yellow rubber puck shaped item wrapped into a pale tortilla. It turned out the eggs were made of some chemical compound maybe known to the science professors and students. Had to leave the sandwich... More
