We had our last breakfast of our trip at Queen of Tarts! Our relaxed cup of tea, scones and potato leak cakes is sending us home already missing the Irish hospitality and great food.

I love tarts and I found theirs to be quite good. I also enjoyed the look of the place with the tea cups and the old world charm.

Lovely small quaint cake shop close to Dublin Castle. Staff were attentive although seemed very busy/tired. Cakes all homemade and tasty. Reasonably priced for Dublin.

This cafe and cake shop is not too far away from the Dublin Castle. I highly recommend to grab a cup of coffee/tea and desserts after visiting the Dublin Castle. This is a small place so you may need to wait for a little bit to get a table, but it definitely worth the wait. We ordered the Baileys Cheesecake... More

The Bailey's chocolate chip cheesecake is to die for! That alone is enough for me to consider a second trip to Dublin. A must try!

This place is small for big groups, which we had, but the yaccommodated us just fine. The food was great all around, especially the French toast! The waitress was a little slow on water refills but we didn't mind. 10/10 need to go here!

An exceptional menu with lots of choices, well prepared in short order and exactly as requested. As mentioned above, it was a little pricey.

Thank you, Trip Advisor, for leading us to this exquisite eatery. Tried out both venues, one for coffee & cake, one for a really tasty breakfast. Prepare to queue, (such is its popularity) but be assured, worth the wait.

There is nothing more comforting than a pot of tea and one of her truly sumptuous desserts--My favorites are the Meringues, Victorian Sponge Cake and Lemon Meringue Tarts..Go and discover your own favorite. They have excellent food too!! (And as a souvenir to myself I took home one of their wonderful enamel teapot...)

Thank saek
