I had heard so many people recommending Cafe Idaho that I had to try it out. It did not live up to expectations. It is very small inside and difficult to get round. The menu is expensive. The coffee is good. Staff do not want you to take your time.

Great baked goods, but the bap with the works is the BEST for breakfast. really i could give a list of the nice things to eat here. Staff are wonderfully friendly. It is a small space but definitely worth a visit.

Delicious coffee and melt-in-your-mouth pastries. Great spot in the centre of Cork City. It is a tiny piece of heaven! Seriously, it is small.... Tucked into a lane between Brown Thomas and Debenhams, this gem of a cafe is one of my favorites - and Cork has lots to choose from!

Have had coffee here on numerous occasions, it is a really busy, buzzy, great cafe. The coffee is always great, and the desserts or pastries are really fresh. Great atmosphere.

A little pit stop for shoppers and workers in Cork city centre Idaho has an athmospheric setting and though a little crowded it is possible to enjoy brunch while discussing the events of the day. The manager and staff are friendly and courteous and the coffee/tea and extras are always delicious..
