“Most memorable meal of recent years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Stopped into this cafe on the recommendation of a friend. I ordered the tart of the day-goat cheese, butternut squash, carmelized onions and beets. I can't stop thinking about it! I will try to reproduce it when I get home, but I can't imagine that it will be close to the same ( because I am a horrid cook!) I am sure this will sound corny, but that will likely be what I remember most from the trip.

“What a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Wandering around Temple Bar and thanks to the Tripadvisor city guide we found the Queen of Tarts. An excellent lunch and the tarts are truly amazing and really good value too. Staff are really friendly and all in all probably one of the nicest places for a light lunch in Dublin.

“Great breakfast spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had a lovely breakfast here one morning. I had a delightful blueberry scone with fresh cream, jam and a cafe latte. My friend enjoyed a smoked salmon special. Adorable atmosphere and friendly waitstaff.

“Tea & Cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

If you want a proper pot of Irish Breakfast tea (along with a full Irish Breakfast) don't miss Queen of Tarts. They also serve some delicious scones, a incredible Victoria Sponge Cake and they make a delicious cup of coffee. We always went in the mornings so we didn't get to try their savory tarts (which were always baking and smelling the place up with deliciously savory odors...) but I hear they're great.

Also, QOT has some nice design - the layout of the bigger location on Cow's Lane is sort of Irish country and very inviting. The decor & the mixed up crockery they serve everything on is an incredibly nice touch.
