From the moment you walk through the doors on 124th Street, customers are greeted with old world elegance, typical of what you would imagine a European sidewalk café, complete with delectable pastries, specialty coffees and so much more. From the rich, cream-colored walls, tastefully decorated, to the gold filigree ceiling panels, Duchess creates an atmosphere made for that great conversation with your best friend.
Add to the experience how each and every pastry is delivered with equal style on dishes fit for a French court. Eager to assist staff make you feel like you are the only they are there to serve. It’s no wonder people line up in the streets before the doors open for business in the morning.
Duchess Bake Shop began their delectable business in October 2009 just northof 107 Avenue in Edmonton. From before the dawn, Duchess makes all of their products daily in-house from scratch, using no mixes, no preservatives, and no shortcuts. The entire staff of Duchess, from chef to server, is dedicated to providing the highest quality products and services. Only the freshest and highest-quality ingredients possible are used, such as the superb Valrhona chocolate from France, Anita’s organic flour, 84% churn butter, and all natural flavourings and extracts.
Duchess is also proud to carry Matchstick Coffee from Vancouver, BC, whose high level of care and attention to the coffee they roast always impresses. Duchess has worked closely with Matchstick to create an espresso profile they call Bulldog. Its nuttiness with notes of chocolate make it a perfect match to enjoy with their pastries.
Expanding their superb services, Duchess opened Provisions by Duchess next door to the bake shop, specializing in the finest flours, chocolates, preserves, equipment and cookbooks for the home pastry chef and professionals alike.
Teamwork and dedication to detail is evident in every bite and sip. Recognizing the importance of this team, Duchess became a client of MP Benefits Inc. in 2013, implementing a benefit plan, which would provide choice and control, while never sacrificing options or coverage available to staff members.
If you’ve not had an opportunity to experience Duchess, don’t waste a moment more.
