“Good atmosphere, average food”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

An Ithaca cornerstone, CTB is a solid breakfast spot. However, if you are from NJ or are used to a traditional deli, CTB is not it. The service is slow and the sandwiches are average at best. Recommend more for the atmosphere than food

“Worst coffee”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Stopped in for a cup of coffee to warm up and ended up throwing it away! It didn't taste burnt like it had been brewing too long; it tasted muddy and flat. A huge disappointment.

“Good quality, but not cheap”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The bagels are the best in the area, but they are NOT New York City bagels! Sandwiches are tasty, creative and relatively expensive, but they are among the best in the area. Baked goods are very tasty too.
