Food World: World-Class Coffee in Ithaca

Ithaca's location and small size make it a nice place to live, although devoid of some amenities of larger cities.

But there is great coffee here, according to the latest Food and Wine magazine, which cites Gimme Coffee as one of the ten best coffee bars in the United States.

The others are all in major cities: New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Seattle, Austin, Washington DC, and Beverly Hills.

You might have to go to New Orleans for beignet or po' boys, Philly for cheese steaks, Chicago for deep dish pizza, or New York for a piece of whitefish. But for coffee, just go to the corner of Cayuga and Cascadilla, or 506 W. State St., for some of the best in the country.

Congratulations to coffee impressario Kevin Cuddeback, roaster John Gant, and all the fine barristae at Gimme.
