The ordering and payment via the app didn't work for me. But you kindly took my order in the "traditional way". So perhaps there is no need for booking via the app for those sitting down and ordering at the cafe. The food was absolutely delicious, thank you! We'll be back soon. Anna

I cannot speak more highly of this truly amazing café. It is my number 1 place to go now and I’m only sorry I didn’t find it sooner. Being a vegan it can be really difficult to find good choice but at Izz you are not disappointed. Even if you’re not vegan you will be treated to amazing food. 10/10 on all levels

This was an excellent experience. The food was superb and the staff could not have been more helpful and courteous - especially the way they negotiated large numbers of customers in a small space during a busy lunchtime service in a school mid-term holiday. The owner was very welcoming, too, and you got the sense that the whole team was pulling together for the benefit of the customer. It was my first visit and I will be back very soon!

We had great expectations when booked a table and the whole experience went way beyond that! Literally everything was amazing and the piping hot, just out of the oven breads were something else. Cinnamon roll: orgasmic.

Hi food and service all great only thing was we weren’t told we only had an hour for the table and our table wasn’t ready when we arrived and had to be cleaned so that ate into our time and we only got our food a half an hour after arriving so we were told then we had to leave the table for the next booking so we didn’t have that much time to eat - an hour isn’t really enough time and good to let the customers know this at least. Thanks love the food and will definitely be back.

The food is all so beautiful and it was a lovely experience overall. Thank you so much. The lighting was very bright for an evening cafe though, it would be lovely if it was a little more ambient, and the door was left open by lots of people coming in and out so it was a bit chilly! But other than that it was perfect thank you, can’t wait to come back we have found our new fav place to eat in Cork
