“Queen of Tarts is one of Dublin's most popular eating destinations, so much so the owners had to open a second location with more seating! They offer a wide variety of baked goods including Gluten Free options! You can also go there for lunch or afternoon tea. Great coffee and a really cozy atmosphere make this place one of our favorites. Plus the staff are super friendly!”
