Queen of Tarts
Queen of Tarts is named appropriately, as this two-storey, confection-filled café is straight out of a fairy tale. Run by a pair of pastry chef sisters who trained in New York City, it originally opened on Dame Street in 1998, and today the two shops are still among the best places in the city to get baked goods. Their mouthwatering desserts include a decadent chocolate pecan tart, cinnamon cardamom swirls with apple butter, seasonal crumbles and a New York raspberry cheesecake – possibly harking back to the owners’ training – plus much more. The menu also features lunch and brunch options, scones, and savoury tarts.
