Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! I was working with them long distance and did not get to meet with them in person until about 2 weeks before the wedding, but that was all I needed. I worked with Kim for the catering and she was great! She came out and visited my venue to check things out and on the day of literally took care of everything! I made a lot of decorations for the reception and every single thing was placed exactly where I had imagined it. I did not hear one bad thing about the food either!

Food was great-there were a few mistakes but nothing terrible. The process of getting what we wanted was fairly stressful. We had received quotes for what they offered and then the final price ended up changing significantly. They hadn't included the packaging and it almost doubled the price. In the end, I still love Ithaca Bakery-I just think the word "wedding" inspires dollar signs and thoughts of unlimited budgets in many businesses.

Perfect wedding cake! My husband and I had special requests for our cake, and Ithaca Bakery captured exactly what we were looking for. The cake was delicious, and well loved by our guests.

I was also planning this remotely and found them to be very easy to work and incredibly responsive!

Cake was wonderful!! We opted to do a display cake with flavored sheet cakes.. once your cake is cut and disapears people are none the wiser that it isn't what they are eating!!

The only negative is that the cake was late to our wedding... i had to call them and delay the reception start until it arrived. And i had requested a cupcake for a girl celebrating her birthday that day and it didn't arrive


other than that they were fantastic!

Ithaca Bakery provided a small cake cutting cake, cupcakes, individual apple and pumpkin pies for our wedding. We met Heather in July and did a taste testing and fell in love with the cakes and pies. We knew immediately that we didn't want to look any further. Heather was very responsive in getting the contract out and taking payment as the date approached. Our desserts arrived on time on our wedding day. The display looked amazing and our guests raved about the desserts. Thanks Ithaca Bakery!

Ithaca Bakery went above and beyond for us with our wedding cake. We had two cake tastings and they were willing to work with us to create a fall flavored wedding cake. They were open to the idea and loved the creativeness of it. They also were able to create a fantastic grooms cake without my husband having a clue about it. They were easy to work with, and their cake is fantastic! It was not dry at all like a lot of wedding cakes can be! We would definitely suggest Ithaca Bakery to all of our friends and family who are getting married.

Not super thrilled with IB. It was like PULLING TEETH to get anyone from IB to respond to me in a timely fashion. I'd email, wait 3-4 business days, email again, wait another 3-4 business days, then finally get ticked off and call.

The food itself was hit-or-miss. Lasange was great, but they didn't bring enough... probably because the chicken looked gross and was very dry, so we ended up with a lot of that left over. Couscous salad was "meh," but green salad was ok. I don't think it was worth the price they charge per head.

We held a small reception after our elopement. So maybe our event wasn't big or important enough (read: enough $$$) for them to care. Having said that, one of my close friends used IB for her 150 person wedding two years ago, full service catering with open bar, and she had the same experience. (They actually ran out of booze at my friend's wedding - oops.)

Would not recommend.

The food provided by Ithaca Bakery was very good! They catered our cocktail hour and reception dinner. Guests were raving about how good all the food was - and not your typical bland wedding food. The entrees we chose were grilled sirloin with portobello's and roasted red pepper au jus, hawaiian bbq chicken, and eggplant rollatini. The food was grilled at our venue so everything was fresh & hot. They also rented the linens and china for us, and set up everything that went on the table. Getting in touch with our coordinator was not always easy, they are a busy business and seem to have a lot of turnover. We went through two coordinators before working with Niki. When we were able to meet with her she was very nice and professional and made sure everything went smoothly.

Ithaca Bakery was great to work with for our wedding. We both were familiar with their bakery and was excited to choose them to cater our wedding. We had two free food tastings and were even invited back for a third. They changed our menu at our request time and again, were great in price, and helped us meet our budget. We also had tons of comments from our guest on how wonderful the wedding food was and how different some of the choices were! They had lots of both vegetarian and meat options to keep everyone happy and were a joy to work with for our wedding.
