What a nice little place!, it's cute and cozy, nicely furnished.I waited for a long line outside to get in, and I'm glad I did. Had a French toast,which was delicious, grilled to fluffy, golden perfection, served with blueberry and maple syrup and whipped cream./9.95eu/...More

We loved our relaxing breakfast at The Queen of Tarts each morning on Cow Lane. Best coffee ever and terrific breakfast. Fun quaint place to enjoy while in Dublin.

The place is not big but the cakes are home made and very good. The tea is also excellent but we never try the coffee

The food, service and ambiance are excellent. It was just around the corner from our place, so we chose it for location...but it was great, period!

Best scone I've had in the UK ever (over the course of three different trips). MAKE TIME FOR THIS PLACE IF YOU LIKE SCONES. I still dream of the scones.

I took a coffee and tart to go, as it was full in the little cafe. Super cute decor. Tart crust was a bit too thick for my liking but it was pretty good otherwise.

The cake is delicious, the selection good. I love how the tea is served in enamel pots and mismatched cups and saucers. Only downside is the limited space.

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.
