Queen of Tarts is another landmark in Dublin. The place is very characteristic and the breakfasts are superb. We had a rustic apple crumble, a handmade blueberry scone and a fruit salad with yogurt. Everything was superb, as well as the teas served in a classic teapot. QoT will definitely be my destination for breakfast next time I'll be in... More

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.

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.

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.
