This was so good, we went back the next morning. We tried the hearty breakfast, the lox dish, and the vegetarian dishes. We left clean plates.

Must go there for breakfast! They have a variety of drinks and cakes/pastries. It gets busy sometimes, so you might have to wait in line or go to their other shop down the road.

Great sandwiches and Baileys hot chocolate! It is busy so don't plan on being in a rush if you are sitting for a meal. Definitely a great spot to check out!

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.
