This is a great place to stop for a quick meal. You have the ability to build your own sandwich, choose from some signature varieties, or get food of the hot bar. They also have a wide and tasty selection of desserts. It's good either for lunch or to pick up breakfast or a treat.

The food is a little over priced in my opinion, but you pay for what you get. The food is amazing. I've only ever had their breakfast sandwiches, their smoothies, and some baked goods, but I've never been disappointed once. The food is great, and they have a huge menu to choose from.

They have a large selection of hot, prepared food and a big menu that is cooked to order. The vegetarian options are plentiful and delicious. It's a great place for a quick bite to go or a relaxing place to bring a few friends. Highly recommended.

I remember coming to the bakery when I was a kid, but I come here all the time now! The food is amazing, the staff is all very friendly. Food may seem expensive to some, but it isn't horrible. Keep your receipt though. I've now had two experiences where they're missing my order and didn't believe me until I showed... More

We used to drive 30 miles to IB every week and buy there products, especially the organic stone ground flour from "Earth's Harvest Farm" in NY. However they stopped selling that, so now we only go about once every 3 months. We buy the flour direct from the mill now. It's fabulous flour for those who can tell the difference.... More

We were here for a light breakfast so just had bagels, coffee and tea, all good. We wished it was local to us because they had a good looking sandwich menu and lots of good looking breads. We purchased a baguette which we had with cheese later that afternoon and it was excellent

Stopped in for breakfast based on reviews but probably won't return. Our blueberry scones were dry and difficult to chew and swallow. The latte, steamer and bananas were fine, otherwise this bakery would have been rated only a one or a two. I expect quality baked goods at a bakery.

For years, even decades, this Ithaca institution has been our go-to place for Sunday bagels and the New York Times and for frequent lunches. No more! First, there is the difficulty, or often impossibility, of finding a place to park. As the traffic at Ithaca Bakery has increased, parking has not. Lack of same has led me to turn to... More
