I guess I just don't get it. While the atmosphere here is great (super minimal design), my girlfriend and I have tried their coffee multiple times, and it just tastes bad. It tastes weirdly burnt and very different, in a bad way, than any other...More

Fantastic local coffee house with amazing drip coffee. The coffee house can get load but they also have a sidewalk seating area.

Considering prices are about the same as Starbucks and the Coffee Roaster a block down the street, I don't know why anyone would buy coffee here. Coffee was mediocre and the place was not very clean.

Perhaps there are too many coffee houses, and Gimmie! no longer makes the grade, at least here in the home town of Ithaca. I used to be a regular, drinking everything from drip coffee and espresso to (attempts at) cappuccino. I had become so loyal...More
