We enjoyed our first breakfast in Dublin here upon a recommendation from a coffee shop. The Queen of Tarts was small and cozy. The breakfasts good. After admiring the scones that first visit we were inclined to return on our last day in town. This place had a nice atmosphere.

I have visited this place several times over 2 visits to Dublin. I have to say the Apple Pie and the Apple and Blackberry pie's are amazing. They are freshly made and you can tell the quality in the taste. I have seriously considered visiting Dublin again for the day just to have some pie from here.

We stopped in here for a spot of afternoon tea after visiting the Chester Beatty Library. It was perfect! Table service, with a fantastic selection of pastries, puddings and cakes - they also have a proper lunch menu too. We had a piece of the pecan chocolate tart and an apple and blackberry crumble tart - both were extremely good!!... More

I have been a very frequent customer of Queen of Tarts for the past 5 years, first in their Dame St store and now in their Cows Lane store. I have to say the food and desserts are top quality but I've noticed over the past year or so that prices have been slowly creeping up. Queen of Tarts was... More

This place is tiny, so it can be a bit tight when it's packed, but it's very charming and the food is amazing. It's also really cheap if you're on a budget

I heard nothing but tremendous things about how wonderful this place was for desserts, especially for cupcakes. That was not the impression that I got on our visit. Service was curt and a bit rude, not much else to say. The cupcakes lacked flavor and actually were quite dry. If you rely on icing for the flavor and don't mind... More

Stumbled upon this place by accident but so glad I did. The cakes are huge and well worth the money. I had a blackberry tart and it didn't disappoint. The only problem is having to choose which to have.

A lovely place to go for your lunch or a nice piece of cake with coffee or tea. There is a nice atmosphere, only the service is very slowly!

A little gem, Queen of Tarts, Cows Lane, Dublin. A beautiful, homely tearoom with mezzanine, serving fantastic home cooking. I love bringing visitors to my home there!
