Discover Something New

We are a unique specialty store featuring a combination of café, tavern, craft beer shop, and gourmet market. We aim to provide an escape for everyday people looking to explore and indulge in something fun, fresh, and vibrant. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. The people are as unique and eclectic as the city of Ithaca itself. Stop by and visit as you travel along your road. We hope it’s a long one.

Cafes: Both locations feature a full service espresso bar where carefully trained baristas prepare exceptional coffee, tea, and espresso beverages. You can also enjoy made to order sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, as well as seasonally rotating baked goods made from scratch in our own bakery and delivered fresh each morning.

Taverns: Both locations feature a tavern with a rotating selection of craft beer on tap, as well as a selection of wine served at the peak of freshness using a special preservation and dispensing system. Stop by for free weekly beer tastings, happy hours, or open mic night (view calendar here). To view the Triphammer Tavern tap list click here, and to view the Gateway Tavern tap list click here. We post and update our tasting events on Facebook and Untappd as well.

Craft Beer Shop: Both locations offer an impressive and carefully curated selection of local, domestic, and international craft beers. Our selection rotates seasonally, and we are constantly on the search for unique and high quality releases. The selection and each store may vary, so if you don’t see something please ask. Our staff would be happy to find out if what you are looking for may be stocked at the other location.

Gourmet Market: Our Triphammer Marketplace location offers a variety of specialty and gourmet products including artisan cheese, crackers, smoked and cured meats, and various provisions. We specialize in carrying imported licorice, chocolates, and other hard to find sweets. We also have uniquely crafted sodas and carbonated beverages perfect on their own or for mixing with cocktails, which pair perfectly with our wide selection of bitters. If you're looking for something delicious and unique there will be plenty to discover! (Note: Our Gateway Commons location carries a limited selection from our gourmet market, so if you're downtown and looking for a unique snack it's definitely worth stopping by!)
