It's the best place I know in Ithaca for a weekend breakfast or brunch, although be prepared for a wait if you aren't there by 10:00. The Brie Stuffed French toast is my favorite. They have a friendly staff, an excellent tea selection, and an ambiance with lots of charm. It's cozy, but open, with vintage posters and antiques decorating the walls. It's also a great study spot on a weekday afternoon.

Perhaps the best cooking in all of Ithaca, with a small number of seasonal dishes. The atmosphere of the historic, stone-walled Carriage House is romantic and sophisticated. The brunches are the best in town, the bakery is amazing, as good as anything you would find in any major city. The only reason it's not mobbed every night is the parking. Great place to meet for coffee, with a beautiful garden patio.

Elegant, low-key, fresh, local ingredients, attentive service. One of the three best places in Ithaca.

My friends and I love this place for coffee, and lunch or dinner here is a special treat.
I've heard the Brie French Toast for brunch is out of this world, but I've never quite dared to indulge. Scones are awesome with my favorite expresso, their 'Markatto'.
The atmosphere, food, and the staff make this destination worth searching for a parking place.
