After searching high and low online for the best breakfast in Dublin, we come across the Queen of Tarts. This was the best breakfast we have ever had. The potato cakes are perfect and full of flavour. The value for money is great at around €8-9 per option, you can not get a better quality at a lower price. The... More

A group of us ended up going here after discovering Bewleys on Grafton Street was closed. Having now been the The Queen of Tarts I would go back again and again. Busy place BUT friendly staff, great food and if you love cake you will think you are in heaven. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff no wonder... More

I had read about this pastry shop in a guidebook, and was determined to visit. We checked in at Jameson's Distillery and had over a 90 minute wait. So we headed back over the river to find the Queen of Tarts. It wasn't easy, but we succeeded. It is adorable--from the red exterior to the quaint, crowded interior. The desserts... More

On a trip of three days, we went by for lunch twice. I suppose that shows we didn't mind eating there, right? ;-) I had the courgette soup (delicious) with raspberry cheesecake afterwards (had to ask for a doggy bag, as it was too good to leave behind), my fellow travelers decided upon quiche (vegetable pie) and were unanimous in...

The café itself is designed very nicely with cute details and colour coordination, making it feel like stepping into a mix between an French boulangerie and a modern café. The food (Oatmeal porridge and bacon/leek tarts) were well cooked and again with delicious details and ingredients. The cakes we tried (pecan pie and apple crumble) were great! Taste and size...
