Lovely staff encountered throughout. Stopped off here for lunch and didn't disappoint. Great options for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Seemed to be aimed towards the vegetarian/pescatarian diet - the menu is uncomplicated but well crafted and our choices were extremely flavoursome.

Came across this fantastic café in Kenmare for breakfast! Lovely menu! The bacon stuffed French toast was the dream. Generous servings. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. Can’t wait to visit again!

We had a delicious lunch in Boka, it is a warm and welcoming location. They provide excellent gluten free options as well as the full range of burgers, baguettes and salads. Great service too!

We were very disappointed with lunch here. The coffee was good and service was good but the food was very basic and not overly tasty. Won’t be returning.

Always happy as a coeliac to recommend when I get a gluten-free biscuit with my coffee - not the norm as fellow coeliacs will know! The breakfast was delicious too.More

Staff are lovely. I like the vibe here. Burgers are delicious. However, it's just a little overpriced for us and the dessert portions need to be bigger for the price you're paying. I payed over €5 for mine and unfortunately it was tiny.
