Best coffee!

Had a piece of carrot cake here and a coffee. Both were absolutely perfect! A tip: One piece of cake here is more than enough for two people :)

Had lemon meringue tart and chocolate fudge cake with a large pot of tea. Comfortable cake shop with interesting decor and lots of cake options all of which look delicious.

I have never been in Dublin without stopping here. The food is very good but I come for the superior pastries and baked goods. Their Lemon Meringue Tart, Victorian Sponge Cake, Chocolate Pecan Tart are the ones I dream about. But I always take some brownies and unexpected new muffin and cookies away.

Damn! Sit at queen of tarts for hours. Eat their awesome pies and tarts, have a large pot of tea or coffee and soak up gluttony. Best place to escape rain and the cold of Dublin!

The location on Cows Lane is just around the corner from the original tea room but still is a lovely experience. My daughter had the chocolate fudge cake and I had the carrot cake. The cream cheese icing was WAY too sweet though. Deinitely for sugar addicts!

I was in Dublin for Saint Patrick's day weekend. And so, after a night of heavy drinking, I woke up at 11 and walked to Queen of Tarts for some of the best brunch I've ever had. I ordered the baked egg which was incredible! I also had a savory scone which was good as well. The price is so... More

I'm not sure I've ever had a breakfast this good. I ate part of the Hearty Breakfast with tea at the table, and saved the remainder for an easy, tasty lunch.

Was in Dublin for 5 days(about a week ago) and we visited The Queen of tarts twice (didn't visit more unfortunately due to tours and shortage of time). What can I say about this traditional tea place? It's reminiscent of the tea rooms we used to have ages ago but are unfortunately practically extinct. I visited both sites and they... More
