Point of Interest Details

Located on the second floor of the Autumn Leaves Used Bookstore on the Ithaca Commons, the Crow's Nest Café sports a pirate theme where it is "talk like a pirate day" all year long.

The Crow's Nest Cafe, formerly the Owl Cafe, has undergone many changes and improvements to bring the community baked goods, soups, sandwiches, all freshly made in-house and the best organic fair-trade coffee in Ithaca. The new owners, Rick Robbins (Dread Pirate Robbins) and Bill McDaniel (Cap'n Bill) like to say, "We've plundered the cuisines of the world to bring to Ithaca the freshest, tastiest homemade soups, sandwiches, pastries, and best coffee in town."

With daily soups and specials that change on whim, there's always something good cooking in the background. Vegans, vegetarians and omnivores will all find great food at the Crow's Nest. The Crow's Nest is a great space for studying and meeting for groups from 3 to 30 and internet access is provided by Lightlink.
