Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We visited this fabulous cafe on a beautiful sunny day in Cobh! The food was cooked fresh, it was piping hot, it was really tasty and there was plenty of it! There was a lovely atmosphere in this spotless cafe! There were several locals in...there as well. We highly recommend this cafe, it’s a very scenic walk from Cobh and you won’t be disappointed when you get there, just make sure you’ve got a good appetite and enjoy your meal! Ellen also serves very mouth watering cakes, sandwiches and meals, unfortunately we were too full to try any of her yummy looking cakes!More

I'm am just writing to reply to Anthony's unsatisfactory time at Ellen's as it was me who served him and also me he had complained to.. he said he had found a hair on his plate, after I had a look I noticed it was...a long blonde hair to which we had no blonde staff working in the kitchen or on the floor so it baffled me as to how it got there, the girl that was eating it had long blonde hair hanging down,not tied up or anything ,I suggested it may have been her own hair on the plate but offered them something else from the menu! He then said there was another hair on his fried egg but again after looking at this it was only a stringy bit from the pan from the fried egg I could break it with the fork and was not a hair, I told him he didn't have to pay for those meals and he did not ask to speak to Ellen as I had already said Ellen was not there that day! He was very polite anyway and said he would still pay for the lot, of course I let him as from what I saw there was nothing wrong! Fortunately everyone else who dined at Ellen's that day and every other day said the food was outstanding and I highly recommend Ellen's kitchen ❤More

I visited this premises late one morning for breakfast. We were a party of 4 people. The food was of a good standard and well presented but towards the end of my meal I found a short hair under the food on my plate. I...didn't finish that meal. Instead I chose to finish the meal of one of my companions. Guess what? I found a long hair underneath the food. I informed a staff member, who came to our table to see the hairs for themselves. I paid in full for our meals and left a tip for the waiting staff. I had no contact from the manager in relation to the incident despite being in the same licensed premises as them days later when they appeared to "not see" us. For the record, it is their loss, not ours..More

Called in today and had the best breakfast, I've had in a long while. Thick cut rashers sausage egg , black & white pudding Hashbrowns, beans and fried tomato. Served with a big pot of tea and sourdough toast. It came to the table piping...hot. The staff were very friendly, and the place itself was spotless... Definitely worth a visit, if just for a coffee and scone.More

My favourite place to go for lunch (she does great veggie options) but most of all breakfast. Ellen makes the best pancakes with berry compote and biscoff sauce 🤤 portions sizes are perfect too, also try the waffles, and the eggs benny but the pancakes...are the best 😍 I dare you to try to leave without getting something from the amazing cake selection she has on offer 😍More

Ellen catered for our family celebrations recently. Everyone commented how tasty the curry was and there was plenty to go around. The cupcakes were absolutely delicious also.

I'm a proud home baker and a bit of a food snob. I had long given up on finding a good bakery where I could buy real homemade cakes. Someone mentioned Ellen's kitchen and I assumed it would be the same great insta photos and...no taste as so many others. But I was beyond pleasantly surprised. These cakes take my back to my mother's kitchen. They taste better than many I could make myself and it's clear this woman knows her vanilla extract from her dutch cocoa. The cakes are made with real ingredients. The little cafe is friendly and welcoming and a treasured part of the local community. My husband ordered my birthday cake from them this year and it was honestly the prettiest and tastiest birthday cake I've had in 35 years...and I've probably tried every fancy French bakery and trendy bakery in Cork. We just ordered our toy show box of goodies from Ellen's .....I'm not sure I'll be watching too much of the toy show..my focus will be on Ellen's cakes.More
