“Quite enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Ideal Cafe has never disappointed me. I have gone many times and I will still continue to do so. Best breakfasts in CR as well as the best milk shakes!

“Great family diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Great atmosphere. Food excellent. We were served by the daughter of the owner. She was attentive, informative & really enjoyable to have looking after us. We had the monte cristo & fries. And a cheeseburger & fries. They were awesome, but way too much food for us to finish. Gotta eat there

Have been here many times for lunches the staff is very friendly and fast too the specials are at reasonable price too. The only bad meal that my wife and I have had there was the Ideal breakfast boat it was greasy.

“Truck Stop at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I love the Ideal Cafe. Friendly service, comfortable surroundings, plenty of good home style food at reasonable prices. We have had many an enjoyable breakfast at the Ideal. It's not much to look at from the outside, but don't be put off. It's a good restaurant.

“Not so Ideal!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

The service was good but I ordered the 2 egg breakfast with sausages (an extra charge of over $2 for 3 sausages!) eggs over-easy & got eggs over HARD & not very warm. The shredded hash browns were mushy & also not overly warm. The place also looked like a dump. My husband's club sandwich was alright but that, plus a plain breakfast cost $21.21 not including the tip!! Will not be going back for that kind of food for that price!
