Lovely selection to choose from. Very friendly staff.

I went here when visiting a friend in Dublin. It was one of the rare warm days in August and we ate outside. There was a big variety of tasty things to choose from. We shared a cheesecake and I had tea while she had an Americano.

Fantastic food, beautifully presented. However very busy so the welcome isn't warm, more officious queue administration than welcome. If you're ok with that then it's worth perseverance for good home cooked style treats.

The staff was friendly and helpfull and the cakes really great. I also had some soup with homemade bread and it was super tasty. You can buy old beautiful coffee/teacups and plates from this place too. Very nice to take home as souveniers.

The best chocolate tart i have ever had, crisp pastry and rich chocolate filling. My friend had victoria sponge and said it was delicious too. Great coffee and good service. The only fault was in the cleanliness of the loo...not great

Best tart i've had since Paris! The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was perfect for a cute date. The food lived up to all the hype about it and I will be returning before I leave Dublin for one last tart.

Small and cozy. All the food was amazing. The coffee was great. A bit pricey. But overall well worth the visit for everybody with a sweet tooth.

Their Madelines are so nice and they give you a little side of cream with strawberry slices on top. They also have lovely apple and raisin scones. Their tea cups are very pretty. We sat outside. It was lovely.

We have been to Queen of Tarts several times on different visits to Dublin and always found all of our choices delicious! This time we held a special 84th birthday celebration for 10 family members. We sampled many different selections and they were unanimously proclaimed outstanding by all!!
