Must go there for breakfast! They have a variety of drinks and cakes/pastries. It gets busy sometimes, so you might have to wait in line or go to their other shop down the road.

Great sandwiches and Baileys hot chocolate! It is busy so don't plan on being in a rush if you are sitting for a meal. Definitely a great spot to check out!

My husband and I stopped by after dinner to pick up a few dessert items to take back home with us. We wanted a sampling for ourselves and our children. They were getting ready to close for the evening, so we explained to the girl...More

Enjoyed a delicious breakfast and excellent coffee in this cosy cafe. Quirky decor, varied menu choices and very pleasant staff. Perfect to sit and people watch followed by a wander in the market and craft shops all around. The ultimate weekend treat. Highly recommended.

This is the place for cake, teas and coffee lovers! Highly recommended and top place to be while visiting Dublin. Absolutely a must visit :)

Lovely ambience. Friendly and efficient staff. Good coffee but €6.05 for a coffee and very avarage scone is not value for money. I can get coffee and a much nicer scone for less than €4 elsewhere in central Dublin

Be sure to drop in for a pastry and glass of prosecco. The staff members are friendly, and the lemon meringue tart is fantastic.

We had a nice breakfast with fresh scones, good coffee, traditional porridge, and also a full Irish breakfast. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was quaint and delightful. The prices were reasonable. My wife went on and on about the scones.

The Queen of tarts is opposite Dublin Castle on Dame St. So I would suggest getting off on Dame St in front of Dublin castle. It’s a small bright red cafe directly opposite & of course you can always ask anyone on the street... More

I don't think so and you would loose out on the fantastic environment and atmosphere not going into the cafe itself!

A friendly restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and delicious baked goods throughout the day. We have two locations in Dublin City Centre across from Dublin Castle, two minutes apart from each other. Drop in for a homemade scone with raspberry jam and cream, or a seasonal savoury tart.
