Best diner in town.
Forget the "other" diner in town (the one on State Street), Manos is it. It's a diner, so don't expect the staff to cater to your non-dairy soy-based pescetarian tastes... What you'll get instead is honest-to-goodness diner food at any time, as well as friendly and efficient service. The best comfort food in town.
When I lived in Ithaca, and now when I go back to visit, the fellas and I would inevitably end up at Manos after a night of...whatever. Not much of a place to take a date, but if you're looking for some good diner food, decent prices and decently friendly waitresses at anytime of the day or night, this is the place.
Great Diner Breakfast.
While vacationing in Ithaca, my wife and I found this to be a great stop for breakfast. The service was fast and the food was excellent. It is a great place to stop for a hearty early morning treat.
