Ida's Cafe opened for business in 2008 has just been a wonderful success! We offer very unique signature items like the melba french toast,(yum!) crab benedict, salmon platter, veggie melt, quesadillas, just to name a few. Owner James Nudy not only credits his success to his clients but his Father and Grandmother as well.The name Ida came from Jim's Grandmother, as a child Jim would stop at his Grandmother's house on the way home from school and she would always be cooking in the kitchen to serve family and friends whom she loved dearly. She made a big impact on Jim's love for cooking. What better way to honor her, then naming the Cafe' after her!
His father; Joe has been in the food service business all of his life, passing on the legacy with lots of advice and support to James.
James has been proudly serving clients from Delaware county to Lancaster county in the restaurant business since 1984!
Starting with the finest freshest ingredients is the key! We offer a wide variety on our menu to accommodate all types of patrons, from fresh salads and fruits to comfort food, even a little for the diner with a sweet tooth as well!
Ida's seats about 60 people, the atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxing. The size of the restaurant makes it perfect for the employees to serve you quickly and attentavily. We are known not only for the fantastic food but for the incredibly fast service! To our lunch clients that are on a time frame that is priceless!

Just a few great suggestions for the new patron to try would be the Melba french toast, crepes, salmon platter, crab omelette or the rise and shine omelette is fantastic! Lunch favorites are the stuffed Turkey melt,Portobello Veggie Melt, Crab Melt, or one of our famous Classic wraps or burgers. All lunch platters have the option to substitute the chips for a healthier side of greens or fresh fruit.
