Stopped in here for a coffee and there's a great vibe. The food and smoothies looked great and the staff were super friendly. This really looks to be the cafe to stumble into after Saturday nights party. Coffee, although made with love, was a bit bitter for my tastes hence the 4/5.

We popped in whilst on our mini honeymoon to sample what was advertised as one of the best coffees. And we were suitably impressed. The coffee was out of this world so we decided to give breakfast a go the following day. We both went for pancakes and they were gorgeous and a really generous portion (too generous, neither of...

This is a cafe that would fit-right-in if it was on Portobello Road with it's funky decor, healthy slant on food, tasty fresh smooties and great coffee. It is a bit pricey but there is a great Early Bird deal that's 2 for 1 (before 9:15am - I think). Well worth getting up early for.

Had heard alot about this cafe and on my one recent visit there is some substance to that good reputation. Alternative type cafe, I liked the atmosphere and the menu reads well. Service fast and ok. We had 2 breckfasts of one East end breckfast (full english) and a Lumber jack (pancakes and bacon) which we both enjoyed. The breckfasts... More

Visited pre Air Show one day. Great selection of tables inside and outside. Cool friendly staff. Very good music. Coffee tasted high quality and was served quickly. My breakfast Burrito special is one of best breakfast dishes in a long time. Chorizo, eggs, chillies, beans and Guacamole all wrapped up, it was big, well put together and hot. Very satisfying....

We went two morning's in a row to this great place, the kids had a great time with a wide choice of meals. But the thing that sold this place apart from its great food was the customer experience which is second to none, we drove up from Bournemouth centre and would recommend if you're any way near it to...

Bournemouth football club play 15 minutes or so from this really good cafe cum restaurant cum coffee shop. My son and I enjoyed the Boscanova special mezze; an extremely tasty mix of flat breads, sweet potatoes, hummus, olives and other goodies. Together with freshly made juices, excellent coffee and an extraordinarily low price, it tempered what for us turned out... More

If you love coffee and breakfast this is the place for you! Very hippy like which is great. It gets very busy and dogs are allowed which is a bonus! The breakfast caters for veggies and vegans as well which is a nice change and there is a lot of choice! Would definitely go again although the price of a... More

So glad we found this place. Will definitely be back. Friendly, funky, great coffee and cakes. Lovely staff and really reasonably priced. Breakfast looked good but we had already eaten. My husband is talking about another trip just to have breakfast! Definitely worth a visit.

We visited here to try the pancakes after reading other reviews saying how good they are and we were not disappointed. The portions are very generous and food very tasty and as an added bonus if you eat before 9.30am its 2 for the price of 1. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Visit here and enjoy the best pancakes... More
