Very popular cafe, always busy and its no surprise. The coffee is great, the snacks are mouth-watering and will encourage you back for more.

Went here for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. I ordered the sweet chilli chicken panini and my husband had the chicken tikka wrap and a can of Orange. Price was €13.40 - not a bad price but unfortunately still not worth it. The panini was destroyed in mayonnaise making it very sickly to finish and making the panini extremely soggy.... More

I have visited Jam on many occasions when we are staying in Kenmare, and have always really enjoyed the warm welcome from the staff, friendly atmosphere and homemade cakes. There is always a great selection of lunch options available, and plenty of sweet treats galore. One not to miss if you are in Kenmare! Highly recommend

Great place to grab a sandwich for lunch. Their "Toast" sandwich is a nice ham and cheese with tomato. Be careful not to look at the deserts or you won't be able to resist. JAM is very busy but things move quickly.

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.
