The original Queen of Tarts is located opposite Dublin City Hall and Dublin Castle - a small cosy cafe with a mouthwatering selection of treats and great coffee. The nearby second branch is on Cows Lane, and has an outdoor seating area. This one is very popular with business people and friends who want to meet over a coffee, lunch... More

On your own or with friends, this is a very nice place to have a break before continuing the visit program! The place is busy all the time, but once you re there you'll know why. I came here on my own my first time in Dublin and since, whenever someone is asking for suggestions, it is top of my... More

We had two pieces of pie here, which were of good quality. It was however not great as you would expect given the rather high price. Would rather consider going else, but when you are near it is fine. Atmosphere is very good and personnel is very friendly.

I had breakfast here with my traveling companions on a Saturday morning, then went back twice for coffee on my own. A warm and welcoming place with wonderful coffee and baked goods — try the Victoria sponge. It's not always easy for single women to find a place they feel comfortable having a drink or a meal alone, but Queen of... More

I've been here a few times and love the whole vibe. I took my dad who is celiac and was delighted that he could have a nice gluten free breakfast n hassle. They even service gf cakes and mini macaroons for a post breakfast treat!!

Excellent tarts and coffee. Helpful staff. Very busy place so choose a non peak time if you can. Very small and intimate

I personally think this place is overrated. I was dragged there by friend. They have very average coffee and good but not excellent or exceptional pastry. Also the place is very small and gets filled out pretty quickly, we were lucky to get us a table.
