“WARNING: You WILL be hooked.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This place was touted as the best bakery in Canada by some famous foodie. This strikes me as accurate. If you are looking to find a flaw at the Duchess, you will be dissapointed. A group of us went for my birthday early one Saturday morning. The line-up extended out the door and down the block, but moved suprizingly quickly! We chose an assortment of savory items includind "Spinach/Feta/Olive Bread pudding" and a vegetarian open face panino/mascarpone spread. Both divine and unquestionably fresh. then on to a heavenly blackberry meringue, "Paris Breast" (hazelnut cream pastry)which could easily become my kryptonite! Finally, thinking we might find a flaw in the somewhat mundane sounding "Browinie" But it's rich velvety chocolate won us over as well!
Even the dining area evokes a feeling of Paris Chic! The Duchess is a winner,no question.

“Highlight of our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is an absolute jewel in Edmonton and you have to stop here.

The pastries were fabulous. The soup exquisite. Even the Americano was something else. Its a delight for your palate.

The ambiance is beautiful. European and cafe like with some sofa seats and tables.

Service was excellent, friendly and fast.

I cannot say enough...you have to visit here!

“Baking Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

What a treat to go to Duchess Bake Shop and enjoy one of their many delicious selections. The nice thing is that you can eat in or take out. From cookies to pies to nice coffees and teas there is something for everyone. The earlier in the day that you get there the greater the selection. This a great place to go with girlfriends or if you want to impress someone.

“Truly the royalty of bakeshops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The service is always quick and friendly. The atmosphere is great. There are a wide range of selections and they never disappoint. A shop that rivals the ones in Europe. Good for takeaway or a sit down coffee.

“Decadent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Really is worth all of the hype. Everything I've had is perfect. The lemon tarts are my favourite. Also a beautiful shop to sit in and watch the world go by. A true gem
