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 luke warm. For 50 € for a mid-day snack, I can't recommend this as good value, but at most, average.

Thank Jurist

Pea and mint soup was good, as was the bread and butter. Chocolate brownie was dry and disappointing. Apple crumble pastry was lovely. Good cappucino.

Really excelent place, one of the "must go" in Dublin. The staff is really nice, but the food is amazing. Everything is delicious, from the omelete to the tarts and deserts. Must try everything, because, seriously, everything is awsome. Definetly a place to come back again and again.

I often work nearby and have tried both Queen of Tarts locations for lunch on a couple of occasions. I enjoy their scones and desserts, but the lunch menu has (from memory) just three sandwiches on it, one of which is usually vegetarian. I have either tried them all or eaten with people who have tried the ones I haven't, and I haven't liked any of them. The quality of the food is fine, it's just the combinations are strange, or unpleasant. The sandwich options seem to alternate regularly, but unfortunately, none of the changes have improved matters. Cakes and scones are lovely though. I do like the coffee, but although they do takeaway coffee, they don't seem to offer a discount for those who bring their own reusable cup, which imo should be taboo nowadays.

We waited for a long time in the queue for the hope of devouring some fresh and tasty tarts. At the end, I was really disappointed by the freshness and the taste.
