10 delicious cakes and pastries in Dublin that will make your mouth water

Don’t read if you’re hungry.

LOVE PASTRIES, but don’t know where to satisfy your sweet tooth?

We got you.

1. An enormous cinnamon bun from Simon’s Place

The cinnamon bun from Simon’s Place is a Dublin institution. Enormous, sticky goodness. And once you have one, you’ll wonder how you ever went without having one.

Note: they are only available after 1pm.

2. A croissant from Panem

Like croissants, but find yourself frequently disappointed by Dublin’s offering? Suffering from croissennui? Allow Panem to restore your faith in the humble French pastry.

The Natural Bakery has several branches across Dublin now and they all have one thing in common — their pastry game is top-notch. We recommend the decadent apple Danish. Worth it even if you have sticky fingers afterwards.

4. A dazzling doughnut from The Woollen Mills

The Woollen Mills don’t do your standard jam-filled doughnut. Oh no.

They’re constantly experimenting and changing things up. Lemon meringue doughnuts? Check. Chocolate doughnuts? Check. Rhubarb and custard? You betcha.

Also worth noting that they do a mean coffee.

5. A scrumptious scone from Queen of Tarts

You can get it in cinnamon and walnut, or chocolate and hazelnut.

You won’t regret either.

Sasha House Petite is keeping the cronut trend alive and tends to experiment a lot. The above creation? A pistachio cronut.


Note: they are only available on Fridays.
