hero for a day, hero for a month!


Dufflet Pastries is proud to participate again in Second Harvest's workplace fundraising initiative to help feed Toronto's hungry.

This year's event (formerly called Lunch Money Day) takes place on February 13 and has evolved into Second Harvest Hero Day.

from their website
"...Every day we’re faced with the injustice of good food going to waste while people go hungry. By being a Second Harvest Hero you can help us rescue excess food, that would otherwise go to waste, and deliver it to hungry people in need across Toronto.

Get involved by signing up your workplace to raise funds, volunteering, making a donation or joining us on February 13 as we spread the word about food rescue in TTC stations and PATH locations across the city."

All 3 Dufflet cafes will be involved, and from February 1-28 (yes, a whole month!) we will donate $1 from the sale of our amazing Cowboy Cookies (price $1.80 each)

So go ahead, be a hero - it looks good on you!

TBT - our original bakery!


Throw-back Thursday: In 1980, Dufflet Rosenberg opened her bakery on Toronto's Queen Street West which two years later evolved to include a retail café.

(look at all that beautiful red hair!)

trick question?


What's better: amazing chalk art from Kenny or 2for1 slice Wednesdays? 

Why not commute over and have them both?

2for1 cake slices at all 3 Dufflet cafes, every Wednesday from 2pm to close. 

(Limit 4 slices per customer.)

Yes, how about that weather, eh?
