This is the second time I've eaten at the Carriage House and I have not been impressed either time. We waited quite a while to order and another half hour for food which made for a lengthy lunch in the middle of the work day. Additionally, when we noticed a hefty service fee (not previously informed about) and inquired about... More

This is one of Ithaca's best small restaurants for good food, relaxed atmosphere and charming character--it's a re-purposed carriage house. It's the perfect place to meet friends for a meal; the seating and acoustics are conducive to conversation--two attributes often difficult to find in a popular eatery. Ingredients are local, fresh and expertly prepared. LImited parking in front, but street... More

My husband usually gets a sconewich or the breakfast sandwich, I get the featured omelet, my daughter gets scrambled eggs, and our guests have both gotten the featured strata. Parking can be difficult, so if members... More

Coming back to visit Ithaca with college friends we were completely underwhelmed. We used to frequent this brunch location often. The food was not the same. It seemed very generic and bored. The service was fine enough. They just seem to have stopped trying.

THIS. IS. MY. FAVORITE. PLACE. IN. ITHACA. I don't give a lot of 5 star reviews. Even the reviews I give typically have at least one negative. I have no complaints about the Carriage House. After hearing about it, driving past, it and googling the menu countless times...I finally made the trip for brunch one day and have come back... More

First time here. The food was amazing !!!!!!!! There were 7 of us so we ordered and shared the food family style. The Brie Stuffed French Toast was awesome. We also ordered the Brioche French Toast and Sconewich and additional sides. The restaurant was the best. The service was excellent. Rustic atmosphere. Cozy. I can't say enough about this café....
