eat more cake 101 (for beginners)

Fresh for fall and new to the line-up is a wickedly delicious Apple Spice Cakelet™ (with a hint of maple in the cream cheese icing) plus a tangy-sweet fruit-festival of a Harvest Euro Tart.

Although we've deleted summer's Strawberry Dacquoise Mini, our newest Hazelnut Praline Dacquoise Mini picks up the crunchy-nut meringue banner for Fall - and ups the YUM factor with layers of irresistible hazelnut cream.

Fall brings some exciting events for Dufflet’s retail locations. drop by Dufflet Downtown and check the Queen Specific gallery space beside the store during the Queen West Art Crawl, happening Friday September 18th to Saturday September 20th. Stop in for take-out sweets and experience this popular neighborhood event highlighting local artists and galleries.

Visit Dufflet Beach for all your refreshment needs while you cheer on the runners at the 20th anniversary Scotiabank Marathon on September 27th. This year's route change places Dufflet Beach at a key point in the race making it the ideal spot to cheer (or shop the local Marathon Sidewalk Sale)

Dufflet Uptown, is countering the street construction (destruction?)woes by offering a local delivery special in September for those of you who are having trouble getting to the store to pick up your goodies. Contact our Uptown location directly for more details.

Finally, our Downtown and Uptown locations will be closed on Monday, September 7 for Labour Day, but our Beach cafe will be open for you to stock up on your back to school treats.
