“Wish I could rave about it”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

It seemed like they were trying really hard, and the dishes sounded very interesting, but the menu was quite short and the food just didn't do it for me. I felt like a midget in the chairs they were using. But I guess the biggest thing is that their hours are very limited, so it took several tries to get there while they were open, and after all that effort it was kind of a let-down.

“A gem!”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

Food it touted as farm to table and you can tell -- the fresh taste and quality is outstanding. Breakfasts are excellent and include a choice of a yogurt parfait or fresh fruit to start, as well as warm pastry...all before you even get to your "regular" breakfast. Staff is very friendly and accommodating and service is excellent. Nice lunch menu, too!

“Delectable food!”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

My wife and I have had breakfast here numerous times. The food here is unreal. Three courses that consist of a parfait, fresh warm croissants and the entree. They use all local ingredients which we really appreciate. So fresh and wonderful!

“Best Breakfast Ever”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Simply Red at LaTourelle Resort and Spa offers a complete breakfast. It includes a pastry basket, a choice of fresh fruit or a yogurt granola fruit parfait (which is a meal in itself) coffee tea juice and a choice of pancakes, french toast, eggs or omelets. The Oatmeal Crusted French Toast is fabulous with a maple butter and local maple syrup. The coffee is Ithaca Coffee Company coffee and is delicious. There is a focus here on locally sourced food and it shows. I would highly recommend a visit here when you visit Ithaca.
