Cupcakes, scones or cronuts for dining Dubliners?

Fads come and go but scones are forever. At least this is what Yelp Trends tells us about the culinary preferences of Dubliners. Yelp Trends is a new interactive site using 10 years of Yelp reviews on everything from dining out to dirt-biking in various cities around the world to chart rising and falling trends. Simply search for keywords in one of the five review categories and you have some free insights into consumer trends. Yelp tells us the cronut (croissant-doughnut hybrid) rose to fame only last summer but the chart shows cupcakes had their Dublin heyday in early 2010, while the sturdy aul’ scone continues to please the fair city’s foodies.
