“Excellent Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We went for Sunday brunch and the food and service were excellent. The atmosphere of the restaurant with all the antiques inside made the visit even more enjoyable.

“Our new favorite place in Ithaca”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My husband and I loved this place. We stopped to get a light bite to eat and it was perfect. Great atmosphere, great coffee and healthy, vibrant, local food at a decent price. Service was good too. You have to find on street parking, but it is worth it.

“Food and coffee”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place has great food and coffee. Service is not too good and there is usually a wait especially on weekends, otherwise it's amazing. I especially like the atmosphere of this place.

“Mild Disappointment”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I expected better. Food here is rather good, including homemade breads, but portions are small. Breakfast does not come with home fries. Sandwiches do not come with chips or slaw. A large sandwich is just a whole sandwich. Property has charm and is full of antiques, closely located to Cornell's west campus, but parking can be a challenge.

“Amazing food, terrible service”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food (especially the brioche french toast and the turkey sandwich) is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is adorable. The service is horrendous. I mean, really bad. The hostess is a space cadet and one of the waitresses working the coffee counter practically threw the coffee at me, spilling it everywhere. Her reaction? She rolled her eyes, yanked the cup back, and offered no apology. We also heard two waitresses making fun of a table of customers. Truly a shame because the food really is good.
