We enjoyed this tiny restaurant (by North American standards) whilst enjoying the City Sightseeing Tour of Dublin. Wanting a place for lunch, we were extremely happy with a bowl of minestrone soup and homemade bread. Delicious! Could not resist trying two of their desserts- fruit crumble and chocolate pecan pie. We were not disappointed...,glad we do not live in Dublin... More

I've been here during my last trip to Dublin already which already shows how much I liked it. The breakfast is fantastic and I really like the cosy atmosphere. But what you really need to try is the pumpkin pie. If I could I would never eat anything else again!

Had this on our list to visit while in Dublin and it didn't disappoint. Each of us ordered something different so we could share. Have to say none of the choices disappointed.

The atmosphere in both Dublin Queen of Tarts locations was charming. The pastries were Irish & Continental - and delicious! - the hot beverages were strong and tasty. The whole atmosphere was wonderful for an American visiting Ireland. Both locations were staffed by locals but patronized by people from around the world, all enjoying a cup of tea and a... More

This little gem of a place was one of our happiest finds in Dublin! The atmosphere was lovely, the tea and coffee amazing and oh, the treats! So many choices!! We can say without reserve that the Lemon Meringue Tarts and the Carrot Cake are exquisite!

I was recommended Queen of Tarts as one of the best places to have vegetarian version of Irish breakfast, and it did not disappoint. Of course, you can't come here and leave without trying one of the many delicious looking cakes and tarts. The only problem is choosing which cake to get! There are two cafes, very close to each...
