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.

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!

Whether a nice coffee or a light but wholesome meal Jam has something to tempt and please. Freshly baked bread, cakes, and other foods on protected display look so good that you want to try most of them and when you do choose your treat you are most unlikely to be disappointed. A really nice retreat or simply a place... More
