This new eatery in Ithaca's Fall Creek neighborhood offers breakfast and lunch at the corner of Route 13 and Third Street, near the Sciencenter, Papa John's, and Red Feet Wines. We admit we were inevitably reminded of Andy's 3rd Street Cafe, which closed almost exactly ten years ago, not least because of the french toast sandwich on the menu. Try the classic fried egg sandwich for an inexpensive start to the day, but our favorite breakfast item at Orange Blossom is the open-face bruschetta, essentially a vegetarian benedict variation featuring poached eggs over toast with diced tomatoes and an amazing roasted red pepper bisque. Orange Blossom got off to a shaky start with an inexperienced crew, but recent visits suggest things have settled down. Meantime, the food quality has always been excellent, the portions are generous, and the recipes are creative.
