“love it, I go frequently”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Although the location (next to the Rt. 13 highway) is not ideal, the food is well executed. The bagels are scrumptious and the other prepared foods stellar. The coffee is very nice as well.

“Creative and inventive sandwiches - an local institution”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

It's kind of an institution I guess. Everyone here in Ithaca seems to know about this place and head to it for brunch or breakfast on the weekends... so just assume it's going to be overflowing and have little or no seating.
There are so many, many options and choices it's kind of mind-boggling. We chose the Milanese, the Parisian, the Jonas Jive... all great sandwiches chocked full of local products - like cheese, ham, pesto on sourdough, focaccia and bagels... they hit the spot.
my best advice is to go to their website and check out their menu before you go so you have some idea of what you might order. Otherwise you'll inundated with the choices....

“Terrific atmosphere”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Fabulous bagels, breads and sandwhiches. Try the Long Island bagel. This is the happening spot for a quick meal in Ithaca.

“Hard tasteless bagels and the worst brownie ever”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Decided to try this for tea after reading all of the great TA reviews. The food looked nice and there was a good selection so maybe we just made the wrong choices but the apple cinnamon bagel was horrible - it was hard with tiny bits of burnt apple on the top but nowhere else, and had no flavor. So threw that away and tried the brownie which had a very odd artificial flavor - it was the worst brownie I've ever had.
The tables looked like they needed to be cleared / wiped and the staff were efficient but looked miserable and weren't welcoming.
