“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!”

Burger Joint

“Ok these guys only do burgers. Hamburger, Double-hamburger, Cheese Burger, Double-cheese burgers. They are beyond EPIC. Don't be going anywhere else for a burger. Please, you will only be disappointed and wondering the whole time you're eating it - is this as good as a Bunsen Burger? You'll have to queue but please remember - good things come to those who wait.”

“If you want to soak up the atmosphere of Temple Bar without the price tag then head here, its what we call "an old mans pub", theres no music playing and they do a great pint of Guinness ”

Bar
“This is also a bar but you can't select both options here, it's basically a pub that also does food which has great reviews. The place itself it worth visiting even for a coffee or one drink just for the architecture and decorative ceiling, it's a beautiful building. The brunch menu looks good but I haven't tried it yet. ”

“Live music and really nice atmosphere in the heart of Temple Bar area. It's not the best place for drinking a lot because it can be quite expensive (as it is almost every bar in Temple Bar). But is worth it the visit!”
