Dropped in for a coffee...best in the city so far. Definitely. Would return and if you have a sweet tooth then this is the place for you. All the cake looked very professional and tasty!

Oh wow, so good. Toasted cheese sandwich, soups, scones, apple crumb thing. Can’t wait to get back. We went 3 times and it took the staff a little while to get our check settled twice, but no big deal. Would seek this place out.

Small but really nice place, it is hard to find somewhere to sit but once you manage it is really worth it.

There's two sites of queen of tarts, I'd recommend the larger one of the two, situated at cow's lane. There's more room to sit. The atmosphere inside is nice, you can sit next to the windows or on a bench inside. There's plenty of choice,...More

Stopped by for breakfast. Tasty porridge with strawberries and cream and a scone. Yummy hot chocolate too.

Having read lots about this place, I couldn’t wait to visit for myself as a birthday treat. We were seated inside quite quickly, but it seemed very chaotic and not running smoothly with a lot of wasted time waiting for menus/table to be cleared/service/bill etc....More

We popped in for afternoon tea and a slice of choclate pecan pie. The service was quick and friendly and the pie decadent. The place seems to be quite popular but we didn't have to queue for the table. Prices are very reasonable.

We were enticed into the cafe by a mouth watering collection of handmade cakes and treats in cabinet. It was too early in the day for such decadence so we opted for the freshly baked scones with coffee. My blueberry scone was made with fresh...More

Loved the pastry I had, unfortunately the eggs were a little over cooked but other than that the atmosphere and service was great!

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

I don't think so and you would loose out on the fantastic environment and atmosphere not going into the cafe itself!

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.
