“Nice n' cozy. ”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled in here by accident, a pleasant surprise.

Friendly and speedy service. Food was quite good, the menu is pretty small. Coffee was nice too.

“Some of the nicest staff around”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Have been here 4 or 5 times in the last couple of years. Yes, it's tiny, but buzzing. Menu is fairly limited, but quality of food is good, I quite like the seafood pie. The biggest asset to Idaho Cafe is the staff - the male owner and the brown haired waitress - what absolutely lovely people! As someone who eats out regularly and having waitressed myself, I can honestly say you would be hard pushed to find staff as cheery and attentive in the whole of Ireland. They have a great attitude and are of the same disposition every time I visit. Even if they served rotten fish, I would still return on the basis of being so enamoured by those two. Great work guys!

“Great experience!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stopped in during a Saturday morning and were lucky enough to get a table for two. The cafe is tiny but has a great atmosphere. I enjoyed a sausage bap and himself had the brioche toast with honey. We had two lovely coffees and the service was fast and friendly. Great to see an independent cafe so busy and love that they highlight the local provenance of their ingredients.

“Never fails to impress”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

This place may be tiny but it's crammed full of goodness - great food, great staff and the wine ain't bad either. I wholeheartedly recommend the Idaho for a chat n a coffee (with one of their freshly made cakes) or for lunch it is always top notch.
