From the stone walls to the amazing decor, this place is fantastic!!! But lets not forget the food. The best turkey sandwich I have ever eaten. The wait staff was fantastic, I can't say enough. When in Ithaca this is a must stop.

My son enjoyed the chicken hash. My wife enjoyed the hamburger. I did not like the hamburger, I prefer a good traditional burger. The restaurant does not have sodas. The restaurant charges all tables a 18% service fee. Service was weak, did not Evan get water refills.

We took a recommendation from our hotel to try this restaurant for breakfast and were delighted! The food is fresh, very tasty and should satisfy all foodies. Service is lively and coffee is very nice. We had omelets and the salmon plate and would have both again.

Great little restaurant in town. We went for brunch, and I was delighted by the non-traditional options, which make this place all the better. Brunch is served on weekdays until 3 PM. I had the french toast, with the freshest maple syrup I've ever tasted and berry coulis drizzled on the bottom of the plate. Their servers were attentive and... More

A stone's throw from famed Cornell, this trendy coffee bar serves better than Starbucks brews, teas, fresh squeezed orange juice, breakfast sandwiches and French toast and assorted scones and muffins. Good professional service in a warm fuzzy place. Just the spot if you are visiting the campus and need a break.

We met friends here for brunch on a summer Sunday. The menu looked inventive and delicious online, and we weren't disappointed. My husband and I shared the brie-stuffed French toast and the Vietnamese bahn mi sandwich, which was accompanied by a small perfectly dressed salad. Both were yummy and made with fresh, local ingredients. One friend had the sconewich, home... More

I had never eaten here before and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the professionalism of the servers. The menu is limited but we were able to find things we enjoyed and it seemed to have a number of choices for vegetarians. Parking is a problem. They have room for only three cars and it looks...

This restaurant doesn't look like much from outside, although they had some nice pots of flowers, but once you go in it looks magical. And the coffee makes it smell magical! We went here for a late breakfast. Most foods are made in house from locally sources ingredients, according to the waiter. My table mate had the brie stuffed French... More

An adorably quaint old building close to campus. We were able to sit right down for Saturday brunch. The server was super friendly and helpful. I'd say the food was good but not earth shattering. My daughter had French toast and it was light and dry. I like my French toast rich moist and almost custard like. It felt like... More
