I found out 4 days prior to the kids party (15 10 year old boys..eek!) that it was going to be hosted at my place due to an emergency. I had called a lot of bakeries, all requiring 1 week to make a birthday cake for 15 with a screened image put on. So I call Dufflet and the girl on the phone tells me that as long as I get the image in to her that same day that they would be able to facilitate. I was over the moon! So I call back later in the day to get the email address and Brooke answers the phone and told me that the girl that I spoke to that morning was wrong and that it takes much longer and that it CLEARLY SAYS THAT ON THE WEBSITE (which I had not visited) and she was rude on the phone, using a tone that made me feel as though something was my fault. This was such horrible customer service! I decided to make my own birthday cake for my son and his friends. I don't need a pretentious bakery to make my cake anyway.
Dufflet sells some pretty amazing pastries. I have tried their cakes and some of their tarts. I have been impressed each time.
Their flavour is quite balanced. Nothing is overpowering. For example, their chocolate tart is not so heavy on the cocoa / chocolate that you do not taste the creamyness. The tart shell is also easy to cut away using just a fork (no crumbly mess).
Lemon tarts are my favourite, but that is just me...
Their brownies are delicious as well.
Overall, this little (very small space) pastry store is a very nice place to pick up some dessert cake(s) for your dinner party.
Note that Dufflet cakes can also be purchased at leading supermarkets around Toronto as well.
Take refuge amongst the mint green walls and beautiful flower display in the window.

Went for the first time today and it was 2-1 Wednesday. What a great deal, 2 slices for approx $5. That's amazing actually, in a city with a lot of expensive dessert options. My friend and I each had a slice- the Lemon Parfait and the Strawberry Mousse. Wow, so good. Not overly sweet, but light and delicious. I also had a cuppa.
The staff was friendly and quick, and there were... more

The carrot cake was amazing. The cake was moist and the icing was not too sweet, but just right. The slice they cut was pretty big for the price. Will come back again.
