Loved the pastry I had, unfortunately the eggs were a little over cooked but other than that the atmosphere and service was great!

Lovely coffee, gorgeous cakes and a lovely happy waitress too who loves her job and that’s great to put you in a good mood first thing in the morning.

Busy place, quite small so not always able to find a table inside. The cakes are amazing, definitely worth trying.

I was there for an afternoon break, and I was lucky enough to find a table. The place is pretty small, but the cakes are worth it! Lovely athmosphere!

My third visit to Dublin, and also to QoT. I would not consider my visit complete with out tea here. Wonderful hot tea, great pasteries. I wish I was there right now! Staff is always wonderful.

The sandwiches, soups and tarts are delicious, and the desserts are even better. The scones are amazing, and the cupcakes as well. The tea is good, and the price is reasonable. An amazing place to eat!

Good location close to tourist attractions such as Dublin castle. Only a small tea room but nice staff and a good selection of cakes and hot drinks which were all delicious. Only a few tables so perfect for couples or small groups.

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.
