Very tasty food and plenty of it. Home made cakes, pies, jams and brown bread. Pleasant surroundings with interesting painting.

Pitched in here whilst off to drive the Beara Ring, we were going to be way too early for the cable car to Dursey, and a snack was in order. Firstly, we knew we were in the right place as it was jam packed ( excuse the pun ! ). There were a great number of people arriving in to... More

We rent some holiday homes with golfers and not all of them want to make breakfast in the house. So they visit Jam. The atmosphere and the breakfast was typical irish and so they enjoy the time every morning during their stay.

My husband and I stop at Jam's every time we visit Kenmare. Most recently we stopped for lunch and enjoyed a hot meal on a chilly day. The lentil loaf was a delicious choice that we have (unsuccessfully) tried to re-create at home. The service is always quick and the atmosphere quite cozy. Highly recommend.

Had chowder, tea and scone. Everything met expectations. Staff cheerful. Lots of choice. Lots of locals present.

Got breakfast here - croissant, scone, granola, all were decent. Coffee wasn't great. Badger & Dodo coffee sold in Mick & Jimmy's just up the street! Back of the cafe is dark. Lunch & cakes looked good (quiche, beetroot & feta burgers etc) but we didn't get any. All toilets are upstairs, not good for elderly/mobility issues. No baby-changing facilities... More

This is a bustling, coffee shop/restaurant. My Shepherds Pie, and coffee were just what I needed after a long sightseeing/hiking day. The prices are reasonable too!
