It is a nice little cafe. The coffee is spot on, very nice. Inside is quirky settings and looks very good. The food is nice, the service was a little slow but had company so didn't mind. I will be going back.

I have to admit, I have had here my best ever coffee! The staff is very attentive and accurate. Even though it is different, the members of staff don't do any less good service. You could say they do even better service than anywhere else! Thank you very much!

Lovely tucker. I had a 'cowboy burrito'. Coffee and a brownie after were equally delicious. Great friendly service without the pretense of some other nearby coastal cafes.

Quite simply, the best coffee in Bournemouth. Apart from South Coast Roast. Which is the sister cafe. Why anyone would ever go to a chain when these guys ( and girls ) are making coffee is beyond me.

We go to Boscanova quite regularly and would do even more so if some of our breakfast crowd weren't so tight!😉 ...yes it's a little pricier than some but, well worth it! The staff are great, the feel good factor about your food is high, the atmosphere is relaxed and most importantly, everything tastes delicious! The breakfasts, the coffee, the... More

I'd forgotten how good coffee could be. Boscanova shows up Costa and Nero for the McDonald's they really are. Had a simple, black, drop coffee and it went straight into the top ten of best ever coffees I've drunk.

I am writing this review because I was so impressed with this cafe. The coffee was delicious & the Lumber Jill breakfast hit the spot. Very impressed.

Overrated and overpriced, really don't get what everyone raves about, the place and some of the staff need a good clean..£20 + for two very mediocre breakfasts? 1st and last visit.

This place is lovely with shabby chic furnishings, outside space, great coffee, friendly staff, and always extremely relaxing. If you want great coffee and some sweet things (and savoury!) try this place out

Just went for a coffee but was so pleasantly surprised to actually find somewhere that did a decent job at making coffee in a cool place. Would highly recommend
