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

We were driving through Kenmare and found this place. They were closing but stayed open for us. We should have ordered more than coffees and desserts. We got some cookies for the road. Its a sweet little place. I recommend the fresh food, the prepackaged items were a bit dried out, but that is to be expected.

Ate in once, did takeaway another. Scones are excellent. Terrific service. Breads and sandwiches available. Opens early - and busy.

Having stayed at the Coachman's Townhouse the night before; I stopped in for breakfast. I had the Sausage & Bacon Sandwich - I am SURE this was not good for me - and the Bread was primarily used for holding a half pound of tasty meat together. No egg...no veggies..no cheese - just bread and meat. It was sinfully good.

This cosy restaurant has everything! Yummy range of freshly baked scones, tarts, quiche, whatever takes your fancy. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Very busy so be prepared to queue! Very reasonably priced.

My visits to Kenmare are regrettable seldom but I always try to be there about lunchtime so as to have an excuse to visit Jam. The food is always lovely and there are plenty vegetarian options to tempt even a dedicated carnivore like me. I loved the lentil and nutloaf. Just the right amount of curry flavour. Patience is essential... More

As an infrequent visitor to kenmare, I always make sure jam features at some point, for a coffee or a scone! We went back this weekend and had fabulous take away lunch, perfect for our hotel room while getting ready for a wedding. Jam still does great quality food and is a perfect addition to the more formal restaurants of... More
