My American husband and I recently visited Cork from Dublin. We were excited to eat here because I’m Palestinian Jordanian, and my husband loves my mom’s food. We had low expectations because Middle Eastern ingredients are hard to find in Ireland and we expected the recipes to be adapted to Irish tastes. But as many previous reviews have noted, this is the real deal! We loved it so much we went back two days later. We had the Zaatar/cheese manakeesh combo (as good as the best bakers in Amman), the msakhan (authentic spices and generous amount of topping), the mince meat (sfeeha), the magdoos (exactly like home), the spinach pies (to die for!!!), the warbat (wonderful crunchy layers and satisfyingly sweet), cinnamon roll (OMG! Not Palestinian but delicious!) and the Palestinian coffee (spot on). The spinach pies are my favorite, so tart and flavorful. If you’re thinking that you don’t want a tart savory pie, you’re wrong...this is perfection. Second favorite would be the Zaatar and cheese manakeesh—a classic done right. Izz and Eman make me proud as a Palestinian, and I wish/hope that they open a branch in Dublin. I’d be there every other day! Until then, my husband and I are already planning our next visit to Cork just to eat here.

The Izz Cafe is a wonderful place to enjoy amazing food and coffee. We Really recommend to give it a try, you won't regret it. The cinnamon bun is the best we ever tasted. The staff couldn't be nicer.

Izz cafe was my weekly unwind spot pre-covid. So happy dine in has opened up again. I've taken at least like 15 people to cafe izz this year. Cafe izz is a great addition to the food cuisine and it's very authentic Levant food, and the owners/staff are so nice and helpful. The cafe also has a very calm/cozy/homey atmosphere.

First time here and loved it. the food is so fresh and tasty, the staff were really helpful explaining the menu to us and making recommendations as we were about to over order, the portion sizes are very generous. the restaurant is spotlessly clean and the staff were constantly cleaning surfaces etc which is very reassuring given the current circumstances. fantastic value for money and highly recommend.

Absolutely love this place, the food, the people and the warm atmosphere. The only feedback i can give is that we wouldn’t want to sit at the table next to till anymore because there is constantly people standing behind you, which makes it a bit of a restless spot.

This was my second time in a week. Delicious food. But Manager is a bit distracted. On both occasions forgot to bring our drinks, so we had to remind him. More information on what options are available would be great too. What we ate was so delicious
