From Gimme! Coffee:
After 22 years Gimme! Coffee has entered a new phase of life as an employee-owned business that aims to elevate the standards of hospitality and manufacturing, creating meaningful work and ensuring that people thrive. Faced with the possibility of closing the business at the start of the pandemic, Gimme employees banded together to cultivate economic prosperity and collectivity for ourselves, our partners and our communities by providing stable, dignified and safe employment, engaging cooperatively, and continuously learning and sharing passion for our craft. Our partnership with Rocco on our west end location is a physical manifestation of our desire to provide an open, welcoming space for everyone to share in our joy or to simply connect over coffee.

From Rocco Design + Build:
Gimme!, we love what you've done with the place! 
Rocco Design + Build is thrilled to have partnered with our favorite coffee bar on the refresh of their State Street location. Witnessing up close just how dramatically our bespoke curved furniture and new picture-window cut outs between the cafe and seating area transformed the space, is such a privilege, and one of the many reasons why RDB loves working with entrepreneurial, forward-thinking businesses like Gimme! in Ithaca. As our community continues to rebuild after the turmoils of the Pandemic, come party with Gimme!, RDB, and friends, as we welcome in a new and improved chapter of downtown living.
