You are here because you heard some fuss about the Queen of Tarts.
Do Not Panic.
The name has been changed to Dauphine Bakery and Bistro.
Same people. Same place.

I got a mysterious text telling me to check out the news on Queen of Tarts. I had a bit of a twitch, did a quick Google search, and I found some news via Liane Faulder’s Food Notes.
I cannot find a website for them, but they do have a Facebook page called Dauphine Bakery and Bistro.
Here endeth the Public Service Announcement. Now go buy a lemon tart.
Friend Khys took the time to write the following comment to my post, and I’m taking the liberty of pasting it “up” here in the main part, because she provides more detail than I could find. I did listen to the CBC radio spot she links to, and you can really hear Linda’s frustration. Please give it a listen, but more importantly, please support Linda and her gang at Dauphine Bakery and Bistro. Thank you Khrys!!
A cease and desist and fine of $10 000 has been levied against the owner of Dauphine Bakery. She, her store and her 12 employees are now at risk to have it all come tumbling down. The individual who owns the trademark closed their store years ago but still maintains legal control of the name. I am astounded at the woman’s poise as she struggles with her situation.
The entire radio interview (about 5 minutes long) is worth listening to if you have a small business or are personally attached to the Edmonton bakery.
