Queen of Tarts is my guilty pleasure on so many levels: the venue is very pretty, the staff lovely, & the food is beyond delicious (I'm still not over the chocolate chips scones!) & freshly made. I could go there every day & it's so hard not to stop by when I go to town! For those of you who... More

This is one of the best cafes in town. The range of pastries and sweets is amazing! I tried here the best baileys cheesecake of my life. Totally recommend this place and can't wait to come back!

Queen of Tarts: a gorgeous little place for a cuppa tea and the most amazing scones, tarts, crumbles and pastries you'll come across. Highly recommended if you are in Dublin.

The Queen of Tarts had great food, great service, and the best water I've ever had! We wandered into the cute little place because of its gorgeous red store front and sweet name. Turns out, I'm really happy we did, and will definately go there if I get another chance!

After seeing Dublin Castle and the Chester Beatty Library, we spotted the signature red trim across the street and decided we'd just "check out the menu", which means we caught one whiff of their cakes and were totally convinced mid-day dessert was an amazing idea. Apparently they actually have two locations since the business has grown in popularity so much,... More

Ate here twice on our five day trip because it was so good. We ate at the location on the pedestrian mall on Cow's Lane. Outdoor seating was nice. "Hearty breakfast" with eggs, bacon, sausage, toast was excellent, as were the potato/leek pancakes. Scones were huge and full of fruit. Really good breakfast at a reasonable price. The restaurant itself... More

Cute small pastry shop with coffee. Pastries looked better than they tasted, but still were very good. Looked wonderful! Two shops about 2 blocks apart, we were at the smaller place. Friendly staff, cute decor. Worth a try!

My husband firsts bought coffee from here and it was delicious. On another day we were able to eat breakfast here with our 2 kids (ages 13 and 11). We first went to the original storefront but there were no seats available in the tiny room. Fortunately, there is another Queen of Tarts around the corner and although it was... More
