It's so Hard to be Good!

The fact that people will line up on a Saturday before the bake shop opens to be assured a seat inside speaks volumes. The coffee is good, the lunch choices (very limited) are good, and the desserts? Oh, Mama! This is a bake shop, after all, not a restaurant. But it is lovely to have a choice... read more

I love the pastries at Duchess. I always take my out if town guests here for lunch and they always buy some "to go". Come to think of it, I should get a pastry kickback for all the business I give them. Highly recommend.

Biggest challenge is getting a seat in the space. An extremely popular spot for the sweet treats on offer.

Although I had been to Dutchess before, my first visit after coming back from France was even better! The only place that can satisfy my craving for a true French pastry...and everything is delicious, no matter what you get. Immaculately clean with a shop attached. The only downside is that it fills up fast so be there early if you... More

All the baked goods are delicious, but my personal favourite are the scones. Baked to perfection, not those doughy things you get at the grocery store.

I'm going to keep this short: if you would like to see and sample world-class bakery items and perhaps have a bit of lunch, you MUST visit the Duchess. EVERY baked item is a work of art, in appearance and taste!! We have checked out the bakeries of London and New York, and this bakery is on par with the... More

It was a lovely bakery, everything looked delicious! We grabbed a few different treats and then walked around looking at all of the beautiful homes behind it and their gardens!

I have been going to Duchess for several years. Their products are exemplary. Unfortunately I have noticed some changes in the size of their products - specifically the Chocolate Bread Pudding and the Hummingbird Loaf. They were recently downsized to half of their original size but the prices remain the same. Quite disappointing. The picture is a favorite the Lemon... More

I've been to Duchess numerous times and everything I've had there has been absolutely delicious. I love the macarons for a small treat but if you want to go big, try the Duke cake for a pure chocolate experience or the Paris-Brest for something a bit lighter but no less rich. Anything you get will be good.

A charming pastry shop with the yummiest French pastries, cakes, tarts & coffees or tea to go with. A delightful way to spend an afternoon.
