Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went out of my way to try lunch here as I'd heard about. I passed many lovely places on my way but decided to keep going. Such a disappointment. The girl serving me was very dismissive and totally uninterested. She had to be reminded 3...times what I had ordered. As there was no place to sit I took my sandwich to go, so it was after I had left Enniskillen that I realised she had used heels of a loaf for the sandwich. Won't be back and won't be recommending this place to anyone else.More

Beautiful staff and Beautiful Food. Only thing is be aware when staff ask you if you want any sides eg: Colselaw etc you will get charged for this. Also things like Cream with your dessert etc I sssumed it was free (my bad and plus...in other places it is free etc) But the Lady at Till will charge you for any sides even extra milk for Tea!!! So just keep that in mind. Otherwise we love it 😀More

Great little spot for lunch and coffee in Enniskillen Town Centre. Highly recommend the unusual Chicken Curry and Peach Crumble not something you come across in alot of Cafes in Northern Ireland, but really nich and a choice of side salad. Another thing I highly...recommend are the Traybakes. Seriously take a few packs home with you. Very very nice!More

My friend and I visited this cafe for the first time recently. We both enjoyed a lovely lunch. I was pleased to be able to have a GF sandwich and the staff were very knowledgeable about the care needed regarding cross contamination. We would return...when we are next in the area.More

This is our go to for lunch in Enniskillen but today we went for our free hot chocolate after my daughter's transfer test. We actually haven't had a hot chocolate here before but she said it was the best one she has ever tasted. It...was a lovely touch and it is so nice of you to give back to the community. It made her day. Thank you. Much appreciated 🥰More

Lovely food, very friendly and helpful staff, nice place with nice atmosphere. Ordered hot sausage roll with salads, generous portions and very tasty. Was expecting a lunchtime snack but was a full meal. Recommended.

A late lunch stop for us so we were there at its busiest time of day. We enjoyed a freshly made sandwich and cake coffee all the food looked delicious. Siting area is limited and be prepared to wait as when busy turnover of tables...are slow, but the Food and the Staff are fabulous when you do get to the Counter. Staff are brilliant but the service is too slow, the layout is not helpful in choosing before you get served.More

I visited The Jolly Sandwich Bar today with my dad and was super excited that they listed vegan options here on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately I was sorely disappointed. The only vegan options on offer when I visited were roasted vegetables for a 'sandwich' or vegetable broth...with un-buttered toast. I ended up having the vegetable broth, which was lovely - but not my top choice at 11am when I was hoping for breakfast. The Jolly Sandwich Bar - please remove the 'Vegan Options' tag if your vegan options are near enough non existent. My Dad had the full breakfast and it too was just okay. The food wasn't very warm and served on a cold plate. Not only that but the breakfast came with FOUR types of bread, brown, wheaten, soda and potato bread. Which seemed like over kill. With such good reviews, safe to say we didn't get the experience we hoped for.More

Genuinely friendly staff. Lovely atmosphere. Quality food. So lovely to be able to see into the excellently run kitchen where the home baked foods begin their journey. A delight to visit. Other Café owners take note; THIS is how to do it right!

So, I was in Enniskillen on bits of business and I noted this place on my way to do some. It seemed a nice looking spot! I went back, in reasonably quick order, and went in. They were clearly cleaning up and trying to finish...and go home. There were seated customers while I was there. I loooked at the menu above the counter and asked if I could have a chicken tikka wrap. Sorry, I was told it's put away. Tried another item getting the same answer. A server beside the one I was conversing with suggested egg salad she had in her hand. I - politely - declined. I asked for soup and my server disappeared into the kitchen, conversed with the chef, who pulled out a jug from the fridge beside him and I got my soup. Served in a take out container. To sit outside. An older server presented me with a proper soup spoon, Hardly worth mentioning but the soup wasn't good,left half a bowl behind me. The whole experience left me annoyed and I would certainly never recommend this place. An appalling place for a welcome on the city's main drag. Of all the places I have ever reviewed this was the worst. Judging by other reviews, I'm not alone.More

The sandwiches are not pre-made, they are made to order so you can create your own masterpiece - loads of options. You won't be disappointed.
