We visited Macroom just for a few hours and found this place, initially to only have a tea but once we saw the selection of cakes and sandwiches, we had to stay for a bit longer. You can design your own sandwich, which is a bonus and staff is super friendly!

My first time here, but I've been in Macroom many times. Th trick is to look for the sandwich board outside. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Plenty of choice, cakes, scones, chocolate pretending to be cake :-) They do sandwiches, toast and I think, breakfast, I was too busy eating to notice. Tea and coffee both good.

Stopped off for a coffee and a scone. Some of us had soup, sandwishs, wraps and cake. The staff were very fast and efficient. Excellent value for money and friendly. Decor and seating are very comfortable.

The Next Door is just gorgeous, the minute you come in you're assaulted by the smell of fresh baked goods. The scones are excellent and the coffee keeps coming. Like the rest of the adjoining Hotel, the staff are beyond helpful. Highly recommended

There were seven of us and we called in for lunch. You order at the counter and the food is brought over to you. Food was delicious, we had lovely bagels, homemade soup and sandwiches. Service was very prompt, the cafe was busy and the lady said we could eat in the hotel bar. Definitely a lovely place!
