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.

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!

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.

We ordered a variety of desserts from Ithaca Bakery for our wedding. The main "cake" was actually a small 2-tier rice krispy treat (the best I've ever had!). We also had an assortment of pies, cakes, and bars, and baklava and canolis... there was such a great assortment, I might be forgetting some, but everything was delicious, and looked great set up. My only issue with the bakery was a lack of communication from the organizer. They were supposed to contact us regarding payment, and we didn't hear from them until the morning of the wedding, despite multiple attempts to contact them. It was a bit stressful, because we did not have final confirmation or any idea of delivery time until the morning of the wedding, but despite that hiccup, everything did work out in the end and the desserts were perfect.

Ithaca Bakery was an amazing caterer at our wedding. The food is still receiving plenty of compliments from foodie and non-foodie alike, especially the appetizers which multiple people have said were their favorite appetizers at any wedding they have been to. In addition, Ithaca Bakery was exceeding flexible to deal with our weddings dietary needs. All of our guests (and bride and groom) who were gluten free, nut free, vegan and/or vegetarian ate their fill and no one got sick! Ithaca Bakery was also great in allowing us to purchase the wine and then distribute it along with the beer, juice, soda and water. My wife and I would certainly recommend Ithaca Bakery for any catering needs.

Everyone from Ithaca Bakery was very professional and very helpful throughout the wedding planning process. Our cake tasted good (from the little I had of it) and was one of the best values I could find. The design of my cake was cute, but it didn't turn out as elegantly as my inspiration picture. Perhaps a more basic design would have been a better choice.

Our cake was delicious and quite pretty, however signals must have gotten crossed as some point because they basically reversed the colors I had asked for. None the less, they were quite easy to work with and provided the best price we could find for a simple wedding cake. We had a small cake for cutting and then cupcakes for the guests and they worked with us to find a good balance of flavors. I didn't get a chance to try them all, but the guests seemed to enjoy them.

Ithaca Bakery is a busy place and it was sometimes hard to get ahold of the correct contact. The plus side to dealing with a busy bakery is that the high demand = high quality. The cake, filling, and icing options were a little more limited than other bakeries we looked at, but there were still enough choices to have a beautiful wedding cake. The prices were also much better than other bakeries. Once we did have an opportunity to meet with Todd, he was very courteous and put together a wonderful cake tasting sampler according to our tastes. He brought out albums of previous cakes for us to look through, which was very helpful. Overall, Todd and the Ithaca Bakery were great to deal with. They're a little busy, but you'll get a great result.

The Ithaca Bakery did a great job with our catering. They provided all the side dishes for the event. The food was delicious and they took care of everything for me. Kurtis Price and his staff did a wonderful job. Friends and family members were raving about how good the food was long after the reception ended.

Getting a hold of the wedding cake representative was somewhat hard. We could not get a proper tasting. A box of cake samplings were left at the shop for us to pick up. Temperature of the cake was off and we were not impressed with the sample. Despite all this, the cake delivered on the day of the wedding was delicious and met my expectations. Cake was slightly off from the provided picture, but it was acceptable.

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.
