Fabulous ambiance, great latte and they welcome bring-your-own thermos and know how to make a latte in a thermos (lots of coffee shops make it in a cup and then pour it in my thermos!)

This is an old-fashioned gem. They have vegan pastries and cylce through new roasts weekly. Have a cup in and hang out or take it to go, either way the quality is exquisite

I admit it: a coffee shop with a tattoo parlor in the back had me totally intimidated. I thought I would feel out of place, or that the baristas would give me the Gimme! coffee look. You know, the one that makes you wish you'd given up caffeine, because you simply DO. NOT. DESERVE IT. I couldn't have been more... More

When we are in the neighborhood this is the best coffee. I am a big Gimme fan and go out of my way to go there but this place is up there. It can be a little slow but then again, Gimme has those line ups.

Wandered in because someone else indicated that it was a great coffee spot. Seemed like a good idea and it was still warm outside. Sure enough, the coffee was really excellent and the service was lovely. Thanks!

This is a cute little coffee shop with friendly tattooed baristas. (There's a tattoo parlor sharing the space, hence the mention.) There's always great music playing. It's outside the super-busy zone in Ithaca and one can usually find a comfortable space to sit and work or read while enjoying your coffee, tea, or chocolate. They sometimes host open poetry slams,... More

On a Sunday morning, I found this place and enjoyed a very delicious latte, but the blueberry muffin was not fresh at all––very day old. I enjoyed the Pete Seeger on the stereo, and as I was settling into my laptop (with the free wifi), a family came in with three loud kids. I moved from the back to the... More

This place was just down the road from our hotel. We were favorably impressed with this small shop. I just had a regular coffee but my colleague had a cappuccino and was quite complimentary of the preparation. The barista was very quick and very efficient and the prices were quite resonable. Though we did not sample anything, they also had... More
