Stopped here on recommendation from a friend. I swear, the Queen of Chocolate Fudge Cake is the best chocolate cake I've ever had. I'm going to crave this in the months to come and am sad knowing I won't be able to have it again anytime soon. The place itself is totally charming and worth a visit.

We ate breakfast here multiple times. Excellent scones, pastries, coffee. Doesn't open untill about 8:30 and has a line not long after that. They should open earlier.

I started going here 15 years ago when I worked near by there raspberry and chocolate chip scones were divine. I changed jobs but heading into town it was where I would go. The cafe was always packed and then they opened in Cows lane across from Dublin Ink. I was delighted as this cafe had more space. So not... More

This cute bakery makes their own bread and pastries and offers a small menu for breakfast and lunch. Cute décor and fast service. Quality is good and prices are about average.

We had the Victoria Sponge cake and a pot of tea - absolutely amazing. I heard of this place before our trip and when I saw it our first day while wandering around, I meant to stop but didn't. It wasn't until our last day there that we finally made it. That was both a blessing and a curse. Had... More

We stopped by the Queen of Tarts after services at Christ Church Cathedral...and then came back a couple of days later. MMMMM... the food is wonderful! The first time, we had brunch. I opted for the sausage roll, which I will dream about for weeks, and my daughter had the French Toast with Berries. The portions are generous and the... More

Tried the raspberry scone, sponge cake, and chocolate pear and almond tart. The raspberry scone wasn't too sweet, but wasn't very memorable. The sponge cake was average. The chocolate pear and almond tart was the best, but I wouldn't buy it again or recommend. All in all, everything wasn't exceptional or bad, just mediocre. At almost €4 a piece, I... More

Oh TripAdvisor. Sometimes I wonder if it's just me or if some places get a good reputation just based on hype. I tried the raspberry scone and the Victoria sponge cake. Although both were decent, they weren't exception-nothing to dream about or miss when I leave. The Victoria sponge cake tasted like a recipe I could easily find online or... More

We went there for breakfast. Their homemade scones (several flavours) are extremely delicious! They offer a great variety of drinks and their cakes look yummy (unfortunately it was a bit early for eating cake in the morning ;)
