A trip to Dublin isn't complete without a visit to Queen of Tarts! It might be small but this café has the most amazing selection of homemade cakes, tarts, scones and other baked items. Their fresh squeezed orange juice is a must try.

The Queen did not disappoint. Yummy pastries and decent selection. I wasn't blown away, but my apple crumble was tasty. The building is small, and has a tendency to get crowded, but the staff are very nice and helpful! 3/5 - Just fine.

We had breakfast here with friends as we were staying nearby. We didn't have to wait too long for a table and the food was delicious. I had the baked eggs and would highly recommend them. We bought some treats to bring home and although pricey, they were lovely.

My friend was really excited to bring me here as she thought I would love it as baking is my job...It was very busy and a bit too crowded to enjoy the experience. I choose the New York raspberry baked cheesecake and tea. It took a while to come out, it's not like it was being baked from scratch or... More

We bought a selection of pies, muffins and cakes for our family and it was fantastic! We loved all of it, especially the cheese cakes! If you pass by, drop in for a coffee and cake or for a take-away dessert.

Popped into here for breakfast after dropping our bags off at our hotel. Wonderful display of cakes and treats and plenty of room inside and out. Very near to Christchurch. Friendly service and a good breakfast, although the poached eggs on my potato cake were over cooked, so I could not coat my lovely breakfast in a stream of yellow... More

I read about this spot in our local Edmonton Journal. They were absolutely exact; this is a real gem. We were actually looking for Cow's Lane when a lady approached us and asked if she could help. She said she just happened to be going this way and we soon discovered she was the shops' owner and manager! Queen of... More

This place was recommended in a guide book so we went for breakfast one morning. It is cute little shop with the most delicious goodies that they were required to open a second shop to handle the demand. I had my first Irish scone with cream here, and it was absolutely divine! This shop is well worth an early morning... More
