Gimme is an excellent alternative to Starbucks. The coffee is great, the setting friendly, the staff nice.
The atmosphere is easy going, but the coffee is definitely a blast (unless you get decaf, of course). Excellent espresso drinks, pastries, and tables for hanging out. But when I just need a pick-me-up-cup, this is where I go.
This is our own "home grown" business. Excellent coffee, excellent selection of coffees available. We patronize it out of loyalty and because it has the best coffee in town.
The only reason this isn't five stars is because -sometimes- they play super annoying music that makes it nearly impossible to read or work. It entirely depends on the barista. But great coffee. :) On the intrusive music days, I take my coffee to go!
The State street location is my place. I just love the neighborhood feel of it and it's surprisingly hard to find in Ithaca. The art on the wall rotates and I like to see what's going on. Finally, damn good coffee and baked goods. Love...More
Definitely the go-to coffee in the greater Ithaca area. Delicious! And nice treats to go along with it. Pretty spot with easy parking.
