Review of Cafe Bosconova
Cafe Bosconova has always been a favourite for breakfast but what with all that has happened this year, it wasn’t until someone suggested we visit that I remembered just how great their breakfasts really are.
Cafe Bosconova is situated on the pedestrianised section of Boscombe high street and they have really made the most of that in this season by setting up some tables outside (as well as some socially distanced tables inside) which means that they can still cater for a good number of covers (weather permitting). Cafe Boscanova specialise in serving phenomenal coffee, as well as an all day breakfast menu which features everything from a full English to fluffy pancakes, sausage or bacon baguettes, overnight oats and avocado on sourdough toast. There is a good list of extras that can be added to any dish on the menu, a great kids menu and almost everything on the menu can be altered to be vegan or gluten free (yes, even the pancakes!).
We managed to grab the last table outside and were greeted by a friendly waitress who took our orders. There were 5 of us eating and between us we tried the pancakes, a full english, the kids breakfast, a sausage baguette and a bacon baguette.
The great thing about Cafe Bosconova is that everything they serve is clearly made with great ingredients, from the bread to the meat, the freshly made pancakes to the freshly poached eggs. The menu is considered and the food is carefully cooked and that passion for the food really shows in the taste.
Their coffee menu offers all the delights you would expect (including my current fave – the oat milk flat white) as well as a soft drink menu with fresh juices, kombuchas, gingerbeer and coconut water. You can also buy some freshly made sweet bakes.
I think they also offer lunch specials after 12, and judging by their facebook page, they look delicious too, I have just always ended up eating there on the brunch side of lunchtime 🙂
Cafe Bosconova are not open for bookings, it is first come first served and they have a waiting list after that. They do limit time at tables to make sure people are not kept waiting too long, especially on a rainy day when their tables are limited to inside only. You can also order via the website to collect if you would rather take home (or to the beach) to eat.
I am a big fan of Cafe Bosconova and I am glad that I have been reminded how great their breakfasts really are.
