Cakes are to die for, service a little slow but in fairness they were very busy!

I dropped in for lunch and had a sandwich, which was recommended by the waitress, it had either chicken or turkey with cranberry relish and brie on some flatbread type bread. It was very tasty. I also had a cappuchino which was made well but in a small little cup. The service was good and the waitress knew the menu inside out. It is a small cafe and would suit someone meeting no more than one person for a cuppa. I will go back again but only when I'm feeling flush as it is way overpriced for a cafe. The sandwich cost 9.95 itself.

Went for a coffee with a friend and after hearing so much about this place we thought we'd try it out. We split a slice of cake cause we couldn't afford one each but it was delicious!

Pleasant experience in Cow's Lane cafe. Bigger than the Dame Street premises. Great way to while away a few hours. Great, buzzing atmosphere, loved being surrounded by the old teacups! The raspberry scone was delicious - lovely and moist and not too doughy. The tea was a good pot and was served with a smile. A lovely afternoon and I will be back for breakfast sometime!

This cafe is great for tourists, but for the locals it is very cramped, in saying that their cows lane restaurant is well laid out and cosy to dine in. love the teapots and old crockery, just like my grans!

This is a really quaint and snug cafe across from the City Hall and Castle. I had a delicious apple pie with plenty of filling and lots of cinnamon and a hot chocolate which was perfectly rich and creamy. Perfect treat on a cold dreary day. I will say, however, that I paid a hefty €8 euro for the privilege! Also, it was quite difficult to find a spot to sit. I noticed a lot of people coming in and then leaving as there was no room. Everything looked delicious but I think it's the kind of place for treats only as the prices are a bit much for cake and a hot choc. Still worth a visit though :)

I read some great reviews of this place, and was finally able to visit after weeks of hearing about it. It was a revelation, I started of with a brilliant scone, followed by a tarte of potatoes, onion, cheese and rosemary. This was brought to me with salad, home made chutney and cheese bread. Everything was as delicious as it sounds. Because I was full after all of this, I was not able to taste any of the good looking cakes that were on display. Therefore I decided to bring some home for later on and they were as delicious. For all of this and for the nice atmosphere in the place, I would strongly recommend this place if you are looking for a light lunch or an afternoon coffee break.

Queen of Tarts is mainly known for its homemade cakes and desserts. The rasberry cheesecake is DELISH! Highly recommend it!. However €4.25 is a total rip off for a little tart and a tea and dessert would sum up to a tenner which in my opinion you could have a 4 course lunch for that in the restaurants nearby. Wouldnt go there often as you wouldnt have any money left but is great for a real treat

I had read good reviews for Queen of Tarts in many publications & as my husband & I had 2 days in Dublin I took him to lunch there on Wed 02/03/2011. Oh how I wish I had gone along with one of his suggestions...I was so disappointed. We both ordered tarts as we had read that was a speciality but our chicken was dry, flavourless & I could not eat it. The salad on the plate was ok but we wanted lunch! I looked at sandwiches at an adjoining table & thought that would have been an equally bad choice on looks alone.The cakes looked good so if we had just had coffee & a cake perhaps I would not be penning this. I just feel some food writers are cheating because nobody who values food could have given this lunch a good review. To sum up.. Waste of money, embarassed for 'dragging' my husband there & annoyed at missing the opportunity to have a tasty lunch in one of the scores of Restaurants/Cafes nearby. 09/03/2011

Dropped in for tea and a cake. The atmosphere was lacking despite being busy. I felt it didnt feel that relaxing and there was no music, not that that always solves such a situation. Its very new building as well and I don't know if that added to the feel of the place, i.e. lacking character. Expensive for tea and cake but top quality stuff and generous servings. Carrot cake recommended. Staff are fine, nothing special.

I just can't handle this place. You're quite crammed up close to the next person and it seems to be full of women gossiping. No men seem welcome at all! However, i can definitely see the appeal of the food which is gorgeous. Don't even think of brining in the laptop for an hour or two of work. You won't be able to think......

I had great expectations for Queen of Tarts, but unfortunately it wasn't as charming as I had hoped. Judging by the previous comments though, its very popular, so maybe I just came on a bad day! I found the service and atmosphere merely average. The bill came to a total of over 11 euro which seemed a little steep for a coffee, tea and 1 slice of cake.

I spent an hour killing time In The Queen of Hearts by the Arlington Hotel between meetings in town. The coffee was good, and there was no pressure between cups to order refills. I also had a strawberry tartlet which was nicely presented and delicious. The decor is cosy, if a little cramped, the sister store around the corner is probably better suited to sitting for any amount of time.

This QoT is located on the corner across from the Arlington Hotel entrance. It seats around 25 people, and it was just lovely. My sister and I stopped in one morning for breakfast. She had the porridge, and I had the breakfast plate. Both were yummy, and the service was great. There was one counter minder for the whole place, and she worked her behind off, and was pleasant while doing it. They also had a variety of muffins, scones and tarts to buy along with cheesecakes and such in the display cooler. Take away business was very brisk while we were there, so they must be doing something right. Overall, very good!
