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.

3. A decadent apple Danish from The Natural Bakery

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

Craving a blueberry scone and a pot of tea? Get thee to Queen of Tarts.

Warning: you may be unable to resist buying a slice of cake.

6. A strawberry tart from Le Petit Parisien

We’ll let the picture speak for itself.

7. A slice of cake from The Cake Café

You can’t go wrong with any of the offerings in The Cake Café. We have a special fondness for the lemon yoghurt cake, though.

8. A cheeky cupcake from The Cupcake Bloke

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

You won’t regret either.

10. A cronut from Sasha House Petite

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.
