We only bought a takeaway tart which was very good. We struggled to get a seat and the decor of the cafe was OK but not brilliant

Good advice to reserve a table. We waited for 20 minutes but well worth it. Savoury food was very good but the desserts!!!!!! I had gluten free raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. It was delicious.

This was so good, we went back the next morning. We tried the hearty breakfast, the lox dish, and the vegetarian dishes. We left clean plates.

We ate here twice during our short break in Dublin, once for lunch and most memorably for my 60th birthday breakfast. We both had Irish smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, served with a green salad and soda bread and butter. Absolutely delicious and a great...More

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.
