You must stop here for a tart and tea when in Dublin. The crust on the tarts is buttery and delicious. So flaky and perfect. We ordered the apple tart, lemon tart, and chocolate tart and all were amazing. We sat outside enjoying the summer sunshine and people watching. It's quick and you will not be disappointed by the quality... More

The cake they made for my daughter's 18th Birthday was great. Very tasty. We arranged it thru our hotel (Harding) and were really glad we did. Thanks!

New (and bigger) café in Cow Street and old location have a huge variety of sweet and savoury tarts and quiches. Mouthwatering. They taste as good as they look and staff are friendly and very helpful.

We were pressed for time during out port stop during a cruise in Dublin. I had read the TA reviews beforehand and knew this would be a great place for our lunch break. It was around 1:30 pm when we arrived an crowded so we went around the corner to the larger one. We were quickly seated inside and ordered... More

What a cute place it is. The first impression to me was the deco, which is absolutely traditional and full of irish culture. The atmosphere satisfied me first before I ordered any food and drink. Super vege breakfast and fantastic coffee. I love it !!!

Just minutes from the dublin Castle, make sure to stop at this restaurant. There is two location. Go to the Cows lane location since it has more space and you will be able to enjoy a very cosy covered outdoor terrace. The cakes are very good. We enjoyed the most the meringue and lemon tart. But the apple crumble was... More

Called in here for scones and drinks as we were in the area. Although it was nearly lunchtime we got a seat upstairs. Kids had chocolate scones and we had shared blueberry scone and apple tart. I tasted the chocolate scone and it was quite heavy so was not surprised when kids didn't finish them. Blueberry scone was lovely with... More

We popped in here on our last morning the cakes were to die for. I had a really rich chocolate mouse with pecan nuts and a mocha talk about chocolate over load but it was fab. They do breakfast to every day when we walked past in was always full to the brim

I had read about this place before arriving in Dublin, but as we had little time to visit the city, I didn't really want to spend time searching for it, so it really was a case of serendipity when I came out of Dublin Castle and found the place in front of me! The original location is small and was... More

We had afternoon tea at Queen of Tarts, with a variety of carrot cake, victoria sponge and chocolate fudge cake. It was amazing! So fresh and tasty. The interior is also lovely with a vintage feel. There was a slight wait for a table but it is well worth it! A must if visiting Dublin!
