My partner and I come to boscanova quite frequently and we haven't got a bad word to say regarding both the quality of food and staff friendliness. Clean pure food, nice relaxed atmosphere. Always recommend it.

A warm and friendly place to go to for breakfast or just a cup of coffee. Speaking of coffee, one of the best I have had. The pancakes are amazing and the menu will definately have something for everyone.

One of my favourite places to go for breakfast and a coffee as the food is great with lots of wheat free options and the coffee is by far the best available in bournemouth!

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.
