S Prabhakar Kamath who started Ideal Ice Creams in the Seventies has scaled the ladder of success and fame; Gadbad, Parfait and other delights selling like no other brands in the market and casting an impression among the ever demanding clients of Mangalore and the surrounding towns that Ideal’s spells Ice Cream. Mr. Kamath along with his dynamic son Mukund Kamath saw the need for international standard café for the discerning citizen of Mangalore who demand nothing but the best.

Ideals have perfected the art of making Cutlet and Samosa since 4 years and their ice cream parlours already have them along with cheese sandwich on their Menu. One can taste them at Ideal Café as well.

There are a variety of hot and cold sandwiches, but the unique Focaccia Sandwich, an Italian concept is crafted to perfection. Ideals have their own merchandised Bakery to produce their breads and puff pastries. A wholesome Bread Roll sandwich called Machine Gun which has regular creamy Mayonnaise with spicy tangy salsa spread and lots of French fries and goodies that certainly make it a complete meal by itself!

Coffee is made from freshly roasted coffee beans using Italian Machines. The aroma of coffee is unique and they use 100% coffee and no chicory. Tea is prepared with finest tea powder and every drop of it tastes fresh.

Special Gudbad, Parfait, Tiramisu and many other sundaes are available at affordable price.

 “We have given utmost care to maintain quality”, says Prabhakar Kamath. He along with his family have personally supervised the setting up of the restaurant and the kitchen and have tried different snacks for at least 15 days with friends, well wishers and relatives tasting them and casting their opinions via feedback forms. Thus they have achieved perfection in preparing the snacks and beverages. The recent launching of Low 'n' Lite Ice Creams has satiated the needs of the calorie conscious and Diabetics.

Ideal Cafe is accessible from KSR Road Hampankatta via Mischief Mall. There is ample parking space surrounding the building. Strategic location near to Sharavu Temple and Car Street
Makes Ideal Café an ideal place to spend time with family and friends over the goodies they have to offer at prices that will make you chuckle.

It has everything but a basic washroom!!!!I hope after reading this comment the owners will think of incorporating the same.

There's a wash room upstairs on First floor above the entrance. The passage is from the back, and you may ask the restaurant people about it.
