The cheesecakes are so good. We usually order the apple-caramel or the pecan fudge and both are always a hit with our guests. Side note: take advantage of the 2 for 1 slices deal on Wednesdays: you will not be disappointed.

If you need a cake or pastries for a special occasion this is the place to find them. I walk the area frequently and deliberately avoid going close or I will become obese. The quality is so good you become addicted.

Went in here as I love desserts and like the word pastries. Tried a cupcake with raspberry frosting. Cake quality was blah and frosting was awful. The chocolate tart was quite good though, one thing I may return for. Also tried a mixed nut tart...More

We walked blocks from Downtown to get to this place hoping to find pastries. The outside isn't very attractive and the inside is quite small. We did share a cup of coffee and a croissant and scone, but was disappointed to find it's mainly a...More

The history of Toronto pâtisseries can be divided into the pre-Dufflet and post-Dufflet eras. Dufflet Rosenberg raised the bar a lot, and while the French pâtisseries were already here, they were seen by Torontonians as FRENCH...something different, something special. Like you go out for a...More

Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's

funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
