We were having a meal in Dan Buckley's Bar and spotted this lovely coffee shop right next door. We decided to do our jobs first and then in the evening came back. It was quieter then, but there was still choice of breads and cakes. We got a lovely brown loaf, which was so fresh and three scones for takeaway.... More

It was wonderful to see how freshly baked goodies were brought to the desk: breads, pastries, bagels and other treats. We just wanted a small lunch and bought an outstanding wrap here with fresh salad, and we also enjoyed the great atmosphere and the pleasant ladies. One of the best in its class - definitely worth another visit.

Next Door Cafe's lunch menu is great, I would highly recommend their chicken wraps which are very tasty and packed full of fresh ingredients. Their home baking is very good and there is plenty to choose from. The staff are so friendly and welcoming .It's the perfect place to stop off for a bite to eat.

Do Blarney Castle in the morning, then head to Killarney for the Ring of Kerry. Perfect stopping place for lunch is Macroom. Next Door Café is a delightful little lunch place with sandwiches, salads and desserts--all homemade. Friendly service. Macroom is an interesting little village to shop in too.

Had a coffee here today, was too hot and as such had burnt the coffee, causing it to be bitter. Tea is only Barrys which is cheap and nothing special, would have expected something more artisan considering the price charged.

Popped in here the other day and was not very impressed. There was a good range of buns and cakes. Salads and sandwiches were made to order. Coffee was unpleasant, it tasted cheap and nasty. Ann who served us was pleasant and was able to answer any questions we had regarding the food. However two other members while pleasant spent... More
