I visited here for dessert during a hot afternoon. It was a little chaotic but charming. The dessert was good if a little pricey.

Came here for a cake and tea/coffee. Did the job, plenty of choice and friendly staff. Although check the labels and don't accidentally buy a gluten (taste?) free cake like my wife did!

Ate brunch/lunch after just missing their breakfast menu - but was rewarded with the best frittata I have ever tasted - potato asparagus and leek with Parmesan - gorgeous and served with sweet homemade chutney. Hubby had grilled chicken focaccia which he eagerly chomped down and loved but I was too involved in enjoying my lunch to share! Sat outside... More

During our trip to Dublin we stopped here to have lunch. We were very happy to have proper door stop sandwich and really nice soup and cake. I have recommended this place to some friends who were going to Dublin. This place never fails to please.

My boyfriend and I went here for brunch after a night in the Jameson's whiskey so a good hearty tasty breakfast was required. I ordered the Irish smoked salmon and scrambled eggs served with soda bread and a lovely spicy pepper sauce, which was delicious. Very generous serving of smoked salmon and chunky scrambled eggs, all washed down with an... More

This place, the Cork Hill café one - not the Cow's Lane one, was very walkable from the Grafton Capital Hotel which I was excited about because I REALLY wanted to try out this place! This QoT has a red door and is across from City Hall and is the smaller one of their 2 branches - it only has... More

It's a bit pricy (5€ for a piece of cake) but the cake is very good, the staff was friendly and the service was quick.

Every time I visit Dublin, I am sure to make a stop at the Queen of Tarts. The first time I went there, I stumbled upon it by accident, after having toured the Christ Church Cathedral. The tea and dessert were so delicious, I knew I'd have to bring my husband there when I returned to Ireland. This time I... More

This was our very first stop when we landed in Dublin on an early Wednesday morning. It was the first time I was ever able to try a macaroon (the colored kind that look like little Krabby Patties) and it was delicious. We ended up having breakfast and were amazed at the spread of pastries and treats at the counter.... More

Queen of Tarts is one of my favourite cafes in Dublin. I've been on my own, with my husband and with different groups of friends. Each time the service has been outstanding and the food absolutely delicious. The weekend brunch is great - my husband loves the full English, whilst I prefer the potato, bacon and leek cakes with poached... More
