“My favourite breakfast place in Dublin”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I have lived in Dublin for 4 years and I can say this was my favourite place to have breakfast. I just looved it. Do ot expect a big fashion bar. This is just a warm cosy bar where you can have the most exquisite cakes in Dublin.
There are actually 2 Queen of Tarts in Dublin and this is the oldest one. Go and trust me. You won't regret it.

“Ok but no more”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

I must confess to being disappointed after reading all the wonderful reviews. I thought this place was mediocre. The staff were friendly, coffee was average and cakes were good. I suppose I was disappointed with my cake choice. My instinct was to go for a chocolatey affair but chose instead an orange cake which was quite plain. I should have returned for a more exciting cake but I didn't so have to review on what I had not what I might have had.

loved all the assortment of china cup and saucers and the "olde worlde" feel, the waitresses were lovely and the homemade red pepper relish was delicious....if I could've I would have bought a jar to take home to Scotland...but alas this would have been disallowed by the airline

“Wow. Worth the wait.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

A crowded spot but it's worth waiting. The soup, the tarts, and - oh my - fantastic brown bread. I'd make this a regular stop.

“Delicious treats!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Amazing treats (pastries) at reasonable prices. Breakfast was good but the coffee was a let down. The place is tiny so it fills up fast.
