A Cornell landmark. CTB is a great analogy for life at Cornell. The food (your Cornell experience) is good but expensive, the place (Ithaca) is charming but old and wierd, the employees (Cornellians) are friendly but not beautiful.

Pros: great taste

As much as it says it is a bagel place, I don't think I have ever seen Collegetown Bagels when it isn't packed with people. While I am sure this is in part due to the proximity it has with the Cornell University campus, the wide variety of food and drink, which is definitely not limited to bagels, certainly plays a large part as well. I particularly love the smoothies there, and the huge amount of variety that can be gained by choosing what you want mixed together for a very reasonable price. Definitely a great place to stop by if you are in the area.

CTB has a wide variety of delicious bagels, wraps, smoothies, and pastries, which are great for any time of the day whether it be for breakfast or for a midnight snack. I would definitely recommended their Brooklyn Bagel. This restaurant is a must for all Cornell students!

I stopped here for a snack while visiting Ithaca. It was pretty crowded, but everyone was friendly and service went pretty fast. There is a nice selection of baked goods and the prices are reasonable.

Collegetown has good bagels, for upstate. I really like their scones. I've had sandwiches, breakfast food, tea, bagels, cookies, soup, bread and many other offerings from here and have not been disappointed at all. The wait can be long on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Some of their bagels are a little weird (Banana nut should never be made into a bagel.) but you can get a decent sesame or poppy bagel.

Pros: Variety of foods offered, price

Cons: It's a deli so the decor isn't fantastic.

This place is utter crap. The staff is obviously hired because of how "funkay" and "hip" they are rather than because of their experience or professionalism. They managed to screw up my breakfast order, which requires effort in the first place. I would've taken what they gave me rather than what I ordered, but the dumb person at the cash insisted that I wait for the right order. After 20 minutes, I decided to just leave that place. I can't be bothered with unprofessional service (yes, I know, I should move out of Ithaca then!) and those people just can't be bothered with doing their jobs right. Oh well, they have a quasi monopoly, which this review won't even be able to dent, unfortunately.

Pros: Location

Cons: They should hire people with experience, not just hip-looking people.
