“Amazing chocolate cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Honestly I'm not a big fan of pastries. My wife & kids ask to stop at Janey Mac to escape the nice irish rain. Once in it I tried the biscuit and chocolate cake. Incredible ! I never ate such a chocolate cake. It was amazing, please try it.

“Great scones ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

The sun was shinning so a break was in order after walking through the town. A nice coffee and mini bakery as they say. Scones with raspberries were really nice - they had a certificate as a finalist in 2014 Irish Scone competition. The home made lemonade was delicious an refreshing as well.

“Delicious Scones; avoid stodgy, over-priced bland sandwiches.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Excellent coffee & wonderful scones in this attractive, quirky though not always the friendliest bakehouse / coffee house. Pear & almond scones gorgeous though coffee rather overpriced. Avoid the most unattractive, bland & stodgy sandwiches. If in Kinsale, eat scones in Janey Macs & go to much friendlier Poets Corner up the street for wonderful salads, soups, tasty & lighter sandwiches, terrific brownies & great coffee too. Last Saturday in Janey Macs our sourdough doorstep sandwiches were too big to bite into & looked most unappetising but as we were really hungry we proceeded to eat with knives & forks. Dough was chewy, chicken absolutely tasteless & mozarella also tasteless & leathery & no comment was passed when my plate was removed with 2/3rds of the sandwich remaining."

“Want good pastries while in Kinsale, Ireland?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

The scones, the jams, the lemon drizzle cake, the peppermint tea were great. The owner is the baker and she has a very friendly personality. Went there two days in a row.
