We happened upon this great little cafe by accident. And what a happy accident ot was. Situated in the up-and -coming area of Boscombs, this gem of a cafe offers delicous fresh coffee in unique surroundings and with superb food - all with an alternative edge.

Friendly service, good prices, clean toliets, and it does a take-away service as well.

I usually go to Boscanova for breakfast and traditionally order a lumber Jill (canadian pancakes with maple syrup, bacon and sausage and pached egg - amazing!) and a flat white. The coffee is really smooth and the baristas are expertly trained. The cafe itself is very relaxed and welcoming, interesting decor and friendly staff. Also if you get in before 9;30am the breakfast is two for one (obviously better to go with a friend!).
If you get the chance even just to pop in for coffee, you won't be disappointed!

The only reason why I keep going back to Boscanova for their amazing chai lattes. The staff are far too busy chatting to each other to realise when customers walk in and it takes forever to get served and even then they seem surprised when you say you'd like to place an order. The food is great but the prices are ridiculous now and the choice is pathetic unless you want to pay £8 or £9 for one rasher of bacon and some bubble and squeak with overcooked eggs.
BOSCANOVA YOU USED TO BE COOL!! WHAT HAPPENED?!

I've been sampling the food here since it was the Boogaloo and it has just gotten better and better. It is an eclectic charming place with very friendly and passionate staff. Despite the mismatched chairs and school desks you really do want to stay here for hours having repeat coffees and anti oxidisers (my favourite smoothie, I've tried them all I think!) I always bring friends here for breakfast as their pancakes are amazing, my brother s gluten free and was so excited by their wheat free pancakes he insists we go here every time they visit!
It doesn't look like your normal boring cafe from the outside and the menu could put people who are used to their normal fry ups off, but please try it, my parents (who are both in their 60s) absolutely love the place.
The lunch menu is varied and always fresh and delicious with things you wouldn't think of putting together on, I've even attempted some of their wrap combinations at home!m
If you are visiting Bournemouth or boscombe make sure you pop in here. You'll probably find me in there too!
