Boscombe may not ooze street chic, but Cafe Boscanova is a little gem! The food was delicious, fresh and good portion size. The staff were very friendly and the cafe is a cute eclectic mix of styles, lots of wood and random paraphernalia - I loved it! If you're in the neighbourhood and fancy a good weekend brunch, this is... More

An excellent opportunity to try different vegetarian or vegan meals all served by knowledgeable staff. What they don't know, they find out.

Just had delicious vegetarian breakfast, if I had any room would have loved to have sampled neighbours blueberry pancakes and carrot and ginger smoothie. Fantastic independent cafe with an eclectic interior. If you don't know the area don't be fooled by the run down precinct and random charity/pound/betting shops, this is a great find. Definitely worth the wait as extremely... More

Independent, coffee geeks, personality and character in abundence. Mix that with great, fresh and healthy ( mostly!! ) food and you're onto a winner and this place truly is. It's a place where you feel comfortable to go on your own with a book, with your parents, to tell them your house deposit is coming along, slowly, or if you... More

My friend and I found ourselves at a loose end in Boscombe, and I had been wanting to visit this place for a while. Easy to find, right on the pedestrianised high street. When you enter, the staff are very friendly, and the decor is kinda rustic. The menu catered well for veggies, but carnivores will also like this place.... More
