There is no word to describe how good these cakes taste. The atmosphere is lovely and it is a very nice place to have a break during a long day walking around the city from museum to museum !

They have a great breakfast here! Eggs were amazing. Loved their yogurt and porridge as well. And it's such a charming, tiny place.

Really cute place for a nice breakfast in Dublin! We went pretty early one morning before a full day of tourist attractions (and multiple Guinnesses) and I'm so glad we went. The breakfast was so good – and so much food! I ordered the tomato...More

We arrived in Dublin at lunchtime feeling pretty peckish after an early flight but with an early dinner booking. We’d read about Queen of Tarts so thought we’d give it a go and we weren’t disappointed. I had apple and blackberry crumble which was absolutely...More

This quaint little shop had great reviews, but fell short in my opinion. Though the service was good, the scones were disappointing, as was the pecan pie and hot chocolate. The lattes were pretty good, but only after remaking them because the initial serving was...More

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.
