If you celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, be sure to pre-order your Pumpkin Pies, Tarts and Cheesecakes NOW for the long weekend.

If you're American (or just a pumpkin dessert lover like me) these items will be available through to November 22.

All 3 Dufflet locations will be closed for Thanksgiving on Monday, Oct 8th, but will be open regular hours on Saturday and Sunday.

Pictured above is our Pumpkin Pie. You can see what our Brandy Pumpkin Cheesecake looks like here, and our fab Pumpkin Tart here.

It's ok to drool. I know I did.
