Had lunch here with four friends and all of us were happy with the food. All of the mains come with a large fresh salad and yummy dressing plus the cakes (which they are famed for) are delicious. Busy and friendly atmosphere - would suggest booking to be secure in getting a table! Definitely come back again when in Dublin... More

I have visited this restaurant a lot of time, but I still look forward to every visit. I actually had brought friends that came to visit...Scones and sandwiches are to die for..

If you like great bread, scones, cakes and coffee don't miss this place, tucked away on an arty little lane between the river and Temple Bar (or its larger sister venue nearby). High quality ingredients go into its hearty breakfasts - the veggie one has potato and chive cakes as well as egg, mushrooms, beans and soda bread toast, which... More

If you want cutesy, eyeful of desserts, and good food; this is the perfect place. We ate breakfast here; but thought the sausages(herbed) were better elsewhere. I had their take on eggs benedict and that tore up my you-know-what rather quickly. The food also didn't sit well with my husband. I never had any terrible food throughout Ireland; the food... More

Located on Cows Lane Temple Bar area. Place is small, but has a wonderful atmosphere. Great location for your morning coffee/tea and scones. A variety of morning tarts available. Staff friendly. Don't forget to get a loyalty card if you plan on staying in Dublin for several days.

This is a great spot for breakfast. I went for the fry which had a nice herb sausage and 2 thick rashers, a poached egg, with some tasty relish, roast tomatoes and two potato cakes. Herself went for the veggie breakfast which had mushrooms and some spicy homemade beans instead of the meat. Both were a tenner, including tea or... More

We visited the Queen of Tarts on Dame Street, during a visit to Dublin, following a recommendation from a friend, and I'm so glad we did. It was small and cosy...and packed, so we grabbed the last free table...and as our meal progressed we were relieved that we hadn't arrived later than we did. If it had been full, we'd... More

We discovered this gem walking around dublin and had a lovely lunch and brew. The cakes looked amazing but the sandwiches were gorgeous and filling. Will certainly return for cake

My wife had heard of this place which is very close to Dublin Castle. We stopped by after touring the castle and picked up a snack to take back to our BB.....they were excellent. Worthy of note if that they do provide some gluten free items as well.
