CTB is a well beloved stop in Collegetown for breakfast and brunch, and even for meals throughout the day. The outdoor seating is perfect for those balmy summer days, and is equally charming at night with all the string lights on. The food is on point as well - a huge variety of sandwiches, wraps, bagels, paninis, and other baked goods. And really, who can resist the charm of a nicely chalked menu that takes up a whole wall?
The worst thing about CTB is trying to decide what to get. My go-to is the CTBLT - avocado, bacon and tomato-ey goodness.
The service when we went recently was very good too - we had a large party of 10 and they managed to get all of us served quickly and accurately, without much drama (oh no! they were out of sesame bagels!). Quick service is key when feeding a bunch of hungry people. I love to stop at CTB whenever I come to Ithaca, and it's not a mystery why - good food, decent prices, and quick service!
