A Quick Guide to (Some of) the Best Brunch Spots in Ithaca

As you may or may not know from touring Cornell, Ithaca has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the country (my tour guide actually did inform me of this fun fact when I was touring). This means that there’s pretty much an endless supply of restaurants to choose from for brunch, so I decided to compile a simple guide to some of the brunch places most relevant to Cornell students. The nine restaurants listed below are by no means an exhaustive list of the brunching options in Ithaca, but hopefully they will get you started on your brunching adventures and help you match your mood to the right brunch spot.

A Mixed Second Chance

When it opened a few months ago, The Sun found it to be lacking in several ways. With the advent of their new brunch menu and promises of improvements over price and service, we decided to give them another chance.
