Lovely place to eat

the staff are so lovely, it has a really cool hoxton feel and the food is great, my only comment is i wish they would update the menu a little more often. We eat there lots so i'd love to try some more options!

This place always has wonderful slightly quirky food. I also love their proper fresh juices and smoothies. The staff are always upbeat and friendly, you just can't go wrong here.

Went for Sunday breakfast at lunchtime. Full "East End" cooked breakfast was brilliant and the coffee tasted so good ... perfect after a Saturday night out. Great friendly service - buzzing place. Great value too.

Boscanova feels like coming home. The cozy atmosphere is created by the funky fresh decor but more importantly by the incredible staff. They know everything you could think to ask about coffee. The food is impeccable filled with imagination and flavour. From the moment you arrive you can tell it's going to be a good time. Seeing plates of blueberry... More

I'm new to the area and coffee is VERY important to me. This place was recommended by a friend so I thought I'd give it a try. It's a quirky place, very interesting decor and excellent service. Food was good and the coffee SUPERB. I'll be back once I've checked out some of the other places that have been recommended

Been twice in three days for breakfast. Sat outside one day and in the other, excellent atmosphere both inside and out. Cool, attentive but relaxed service, just how we like it. Food was spot on with good portion sizes and excellent flavours, lovely fresh mint tea too. Great coffee to follow.

Looked after me on the inside with a fantastic breakfast and on the outside with superb friendly service. One of the few local cafes with real atmosphere and charm. Thank you.
