Amazing food, drinks, service, and atmosphere….go there soon! Boscanova, makes you realise why eating out is such a good idea, no more mundane plates of something you coulda made at home better

Was in boscombe and thought i'd try this place as all the food looked lovely. I was not disappointed. The vegan breakfast was great ..it's good to see a place that has many vegan and vegetarian meals on there menu. The food to some may seem a little costly but is well worth the price you pay for it ..Cool... More

Had two breakfasts with tea and ginger beer. The bill came to £25 and a bit, which was a tad on the expensive side, as they are a cafe, not really a restaurant. The breakfast is more of a brunch and wholesome. The staff are nice and helpful, but the price for breakfast was the wrong side of twenty quid.... More

Four of us had Easter Sunday brunch at Boscanova. It is a very quirky café that serves a peculiar collection of food and drink. We had a great time and the food was very good ranging from a traditional breakfast to a huge burrito. We will definitely be returning.

I've been here a few times for breakfast and lunch and it never disappoints! Went for a late brunch this morning and had the lumber jack (pancakes with bacon and maple syrup). Delicious as always! Pancakes are the best I've ever had. Service was great! The guy looking after us was chilled out, helpful and friendly. Seemed to really enjoy... More

You get such a cool vibe the minute you walk in the door. My husband and I had just bought our first motor home and needed a place to sit, relax and eat breakfast after such a big purchase!! The boys serving and making coffee were delightfully friendly and so chirpy and happy! The veggie breakfast is SO good and... More

Arrived here on Sunday morning around 10am, (mothers day) the place was heaving, we had about a 10 min wait for a table, but oh it was worth it. had never been here before, staff are great, decor is wacky/retro/shabby chic/different/fun, food and coffee fantastic. There are 4 of us visiting and 2 are vegetarian and 2 are meat eaters,... More

This lovely friendly little eatery in the centre of Boscombe.....is home to lovely unpretentious staff, who will prepare meals to your specification. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are eager to please. Brilliant place to start your day, or pop in anytime.
