No offenc(s)e, but it's tough coming from a place with lots of coffee roasters to visit UK and all the instant or weak-brewed coffee. Boscanova had great filter coffee (Bolivian / Columbian blend) and nice breakfast choices. Funky atmosphere but reasonable on the hipster attitude.

My 3rd time that I have visited Boscanova, sat outside and have been completely ignored. Have walked away 3 times now, waiting to be served! I won't be coming back. No point having great coffee/food if the service isn't up to scratch.

Coffee was amazing, food took a little too long to arrive as both myself and my wife had finished out coffees before breakfast was on the tables BUT the pancakes were very large and tasty and like no other pancakes I have ever had, definitely worth a visit, I would visit again.

Been here a couple of times whilst in Boscome and enjoyed the experience, quirky lets say bohemian themed res. with great food and very friendly staff, recommend the chilli with a dollop of natural yohgurt and flat -breads washed down with a glass of red wine or 2

If Im walking into Bournemouth therough Boscembobe rather than along the sea front having stayed overnight with friends in Southbourne I often go in cafe Nero but thought I would try to support a local business. Boscanova was wonderful. Friendly, youngish, quirky staff (Im a late middleaged woman and sometimes get patronised or called dear in cafes). Fantastic very fresh... More

this is a fantastic café especially for vegetarians and vegans. we have been going to this café for several years and have enjoyed the kooky interior and lovely fresh food. I have moved away from the area but whenever I come back for a visit this is one of the first places I head for. they do fantastic fresh juices... More

Rarely I get the chance to visit a cafe on my own. But as I was passing doing Xmas shopping and banking I thought why not. Very cosy and a really good selection of funk xmas songs on. I had a strawberry smoothy to start....which was very refreshing, followed by the East End breakfast. Excellent!! Loved the egg on top... More

Great little food spot in a quirky setting with very friendly and helpful staff. Food is wholesome and everyone looks like they enjoy working there, which in turn enhances the customer experience making for a good business. Interesting blend of customers who themselves look an interesting bunch of discerning diners. Price is fair too. Give it a try soon.
