By far, one of the best places for fresh sandwiches, bagels, bread and just about anything else you can imagine. Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free options. Every time we're in the area, this is our "go to" for breakfast and lunch or take out for sure!

Ithaca Bakery is one of our favorites. It can be challenging dining out with a vegetarian, a kiddo with food allergies, and a carnivore in tow. Ithaca Bakery had something for everybody! When we went for desserts, the girl behind the counter pointed out how the treats were coded so I could easily choose a vegan option and a gluten... More

OK, yes, it's expensive bread. But you get what you pay for. Join the "Bread Club" with a card available at the cash registers, so when you buy nine loaves you can get the tenth free. Their sourdough is cosmic. The Southwest Sourdough, with peppers, cheddar and corn, is nearly a meal in itself. The kalamata sourdough makes a spaghetti... More

Meadow St. (hasn't been for decades!) but the Ithaca Bakery is. Went there for lunch last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, it is... More

A bagel and cream cheese and a cup of cocoa, $8. is a bit pricey, but OH! the bagel is delicious, fresh, chewy, and there are more than 15 varieties. You give your order, and waitstaff delivers it to your table. Or you can browse the dozens of types of fresh made breads, the delicious soups, or spend half an... More

OMG, the breakfast choices are unlimited...bagels, hot breakfast bar, unique breakfast plates, crafted hot and cold coffee drinks that you've never heard of...you will have trouble deciding. They also prepare sandwiches with the same gusto. Don't miss this place, it's an experience!

A staple of the Ithaca area for years. Multiple locations around town. A variety of foods to please everyone. A tradition for the locals.
