After living for over a month in Kenmare - this became our favorite cafe/bakery. The food was always fresh and different from day to day while the breads and pastries were consistently outstanding --- light, not too sweet and melt in your mouth delicious. Even when crowded, the staff were always friendly and service was quick. Warm, cozy atmosphere, heavenly... More

Going to Jam is like entering a traditional Irish household – be prepared to be mothered! The staff will definitely make sure you are cared for and fed well! The sandwiches are very generously filled and absolutely delicious. The soup is warm and hearty. The other lunch items are tasty too; I highly recommend their roast veg and goats cheese... More

Looking for a tasty and filling breakfast before heading off on a epic cycle, boy did we get a surprise with this gem. We had originally looked forward to a tasty fry up but unfortunately none were available. However behind every cloud there is always a silver lining and in our case this was brought about by the humble microwave!... More

We had a wonderful afternoon snack. The food was absolutely delicious, I had some crostini and my wife had the lentil and nut loaf this was really fantastic and came with some amazing side salads which nearly stole the show. We had three children with us and they were also catered for fully. The service was great and the room... More
