Food was a little overpriced, but was good. We had googled "waterfront dining" in Ithaca, hoping to eat on the lake, and this cafe popped up. Definitely not on the waterfront--it's in the Dewitt Mall. The small shops beside the cafe gave the cafe a...More

We must have arrived at the right time. No wait, fast service, and the waiter was very efficient and courteous. The food was wonderful, yummy, unique, very fresh and presented well. The only knock (not that big of a deal considering the area) was the...More

The usual omelet choices. Crowded and so less service. The food was good but nothing to write home about.
