The bakery creates a lovely selection of homemade pastries, savouries, cakes, flaky fruit-filled pies and other treats. The chocolate ganache is a decadent cake that is served lip-smacking warm, so try to eat this baby at the shop. The raspberry tart bears a sweet taste that is fit for a queen, although it is definitely not as rich as the chocolate items. The raspberry scones are light and fruity, not hard and clunky. Take a look at the menu posted on the front window, or just peek inside and see what the customers are enjoying today.
The dining area has a few small cafe tables, with limited seating in the courtyard, so try to grab your seats when you have a chance. The chairs are not quite built for hours of casual lingering, but you can order a pot of tea or coffee and enjoy a light snack or treat. The ample portions of the Irish breakfast will satisfy those with well-rounded morning appetites. Savory tarts like ham and spinach are a big hit here. You can also order seafood items like salmon and crab cakes, which you may not expect to find here but are good nevertheless. There are super soups, salads and sandwiches served here too. Everything here is very tasty, a cut above the selections sold at the average pastry shop or tea room. The staff is well known to be quite courteous, but that seems to be prevalent in many Dublin establishments.
The Queen of Tarts is open every day, but note that it is not a dinner spot. It closes shop early in the evening so do not wait to purchase something sweet to take away.

Everything in this place looked delicous. They have a wide range of pastries. I was admiring the raspberry scones, but I couldn't figure out how to carry it with me without it getting smashed and the woman boxed it up for me in a bakery box with a gold ribbon. I would love to have another one of those scones now!
The place is tiny with just a few tables and it is smoke free. You can't imagine how great it smells. Order the tea there, all tea is served in a pot and each pot is different. And it was delicous. The prices were extremely reasonable.
