Come down and browse through our extensive portfolios and reference library, or just to say hi and grab a cup of the best coffee in town. Model Citizen is located inside “The Shop”, Ithaca’s finest venue for coffee, espresso, tea, music, and art, all-in-one! “The Shop” is owned and operated by Phoebe Aceto
