A must-go-to tea shop

A welcome stop for a lovely cup of tea after a long day sightseeing! The pavlova was good too. Welcoming service, together with lemon water to refresh you while you wait.

The perfect place to rest from sightseeing Dublin. It is small and there is always a queue but perhaps it is worthy to wait because the cakes and the scones are really delicious. It is charming, quaint, and the quality of their pastry is excellent and very fresh. Also the variety of cakes is great.

Nice recommendation for breakfast or coffee and cake! We visited around 9:30am on Monday morning and arrived just in time as it was extremity busy (I overheard they have another cafe nearby but we didn't know till afterwards). We had the light breakfast scone with coffee and juice, great value, surroundings and service! Lovely welcome with water on arrival -... More

This is our favorite breakfast place so far. The servings are large, the space is beautiful, and the location we went to is set on a quiet little alley just a couple blocks off the main street - a little haven of serene in the middle of a bustling city. Highly recommended!

I went here with my friend because we were craving something sweet. Everything on the menu and on display looked amazing. The prices were good and the service was quick. The food was so good that I went back the next day.

Our first meal in Dublin was probably our best - brunch at Queen of Tarts on the morning we arrived. QoT has two locations, one on Dame (the high street) and the other around the corner on Cow's Lane which is at the center of a small shopping district. On a terrible wet, windy, and cold morning we sought refuge... More

Tea, cakes, crumbles...oh my! We stopped in for a mid afternoon tea break and loved this cozy cafe. The food, atmosphere and service were all fabulous!

Several folks recommended that I drop by during my stay in Dublin. I had coffee and dessert, and they were both excellent. The decor is quite inviting, and the staff was exceedingly friendly.
