A sweet treat any way you slice it


Queen of Tarts is not the typical sort of cafe you would expect to find in Ocean Grove.
Although owner Heather has lived here for 25 years, her cafe oozes with the charm of her birthplace – Ireland – with its pressed tin walls, antique cake cabinet, fireplace and fine English bone china.
This quaint little cafe on The Terrace not only delivers on atmosphere, but you won’t be disappointed with the fine Irish fare.
They bake daily in-house with a fantastic range of pies using prime cuts of beef with great flavours such as Irish stew and beef and Guinness served with homemade relish and mushy peas.
Other items on the menu include quiche, sausage rolls, sweet and savoury tarts, cupcakes and a variety of freshly baked muffins with unique flavours – think jam donut or maple syrup and bacon muffins!
Queen of Tarts also makes delicious soups and a vast array of desserts using gluten-free ingredients.
Queen of Tarts also can also cater for your next function and all menu items are available for dining in or takeaway.
Oh, and don’t forget the coffee. Sourced from a boutique roaster in Apollo Bay, it’s probably the best value in town (regular $3.50, large $4.50). There’s also a wonderful range of loose-leaf tea, Teadrop served in fine bone china cup and saucer.
High tea is available every Wednesday between 10am and 2pm and this Mother’s Day, the high tea will be spectacular at just $35 per person. Bookings required on 0439 376 390 or message their Facebook page.
