After a bad overnight flight, my husband and I were exhausted, sore and a tad on the grouchy side. We had about 6 hours to spend in Dublin before our connecting flight. Tired or not, we wanted to make the most of our short time...More

This was a perfect experience. The staff was friendly and quick. The food was delightful. Scones and tea were perfect. The location was nice, as it is in a pedestrian walkway. Very quiet and not too busy.

We had a huge brunch here and it was delicious. Irish smoked salmon, a huge pile of scrambled eggs and a pot of freshly mashed avocado and a massive pot of tea. All very relaxing, comfy and super friendly service.

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

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.
