Great Food

We ate at Jam several times during our months stay in Kenmare. The food and bakery were very good and the service was great.

This is one restaurant that knows how to look after it's customers who follow a gluten free diet. Always great choice of both savoury and sweet. The fruit cake was delicious. Others should take note.

Plenty of freshly baked & cooked goods but biggest problem is its self-service so if you go at busy times you feel rushed to make decisions & then you have to wander around with tray full of food looking for somewhere to sit.....not relaxing I'm afraid

Great place for anything to do with baking. They also do take away (brown bread, carrot cake, lemon cake, scones).

This place is outstanding, especially for breakfast. I thought their sausage roll was amazing and my husband really enjoyed their yogurt parfait. Their cappuccino was wonderful as well. Also a great place to grab food to-go if you're spending the day traveling the Ring of Kerry etc. in the car and need to pack a lunch. Don't miss this spot... More

Had read about Jam's so had it on my list for picnic food to take to Killarney National Park. And it didn't disappoint. The shop is small and we were there on two different days and it was very busy both days. You stand in line, look at food in the case and place your order. For sandwiches you pick... More
