Fantastic little place! Food was gorgeous - our party had savoury tarts and sandwiches - everyone was more than happy! Chocolate fudge cake and New York style cheesecake were amazing. Loved the décor, food, staff...it's got the lot! Def worth a visit if you're in town!

We stopped at Queen of Tarts for a cake and a cuppa on our first day in Dublin. The cakes are enormous, and so sweet. Asking for tea for two will bring you a huge teapot which easily gives 4 cups each! The staff were lovely and very friendly. I would definitely go back.

We had just arrived for our weekend in Dublin, and my friend suggested we get lunch at this place. Little did we know, we were in for the best meal of the whole trip. The food is so reasonably priced that I just kept ordering. I had the soup/sandwich combo which was a chicken sandwich on focaccia bread with amazing... More

A must visit if a cake lover. I went for the Baileys Cheesecake and it was as good as I have ever tasted. Everybody else agreed this place serves great cake!!! The portions are very generous which although this is a good thing it does mean you need a sleep afterwards :-) No wonder this smaller venue is the original... More

Every cake into this place is just awesome, for me the Victoria Sponge Cake (it has strawberry) is almost perfect. Irish breakfast is very recommendable as well (not very big in size but delicious). Go there early our you will have to wait for a while, servants are really kind and will help you with this.
