A Great Place for Lunch

We had lunch at Jam and it was so fresh and delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the seating is great. For dessert, try the Millionaire Caramel Square-YUMMY!!!

Great place on the triangle in Kenmare for sandwiches. We stopped there to get some for a picnic while traveling around the Ring of Beara, and the sandwiches were great. A good value as well.

I quiet liked my visit to Jam, the food is very reasonable price and is good value for money. The vol au vonts were very nice indeed, possibly a touch too much white wine (I think) in the sauce but otherwise I would definitely order them again. It quiet a jammed café with little room to manoeuvre like the rest... More

In love with this Cafe, Food is always so fresh & tasty.Sometimes hard to find a seat around lunchtime as it is popular but maximum wait for a table is probably 10 mins as the trade is always on a constant flow.

We stumbled on this cafe and ordered soup to die for. The bread was absolutely scrumptious and the service was really friendly.

Jam does fabulous lunches, as well as very tempting cakes. It is always bustling, with a mixture of locals and visitors. Salads are particularly good and my husband is addicted to their meringues...

Jam in Kenmare offers an excellent selection of vegetarian salads, our favourites being the asian noodle salad, the rice salad, and the carrot salad. The coffee is also excellent and lovely to get to take away to start your days adventure in Kerry! All staff who served us during our week long stay in Kenmare were extremely friendly and helpful....
