Duchess Bake Shop (located at 10720 124 Street NW), is definitely worth a visit. Since, I haven't had the chance to drop by this new "hot spot" , I decided to do a little research......you know, to see what people have been saying.....
Well, there's quite a "buzz" spreading about on the internet about this place. And I've read nothing but rave reviews!!!
Let's start off with the shop's interior space. With the help of family and friends, the decor at Duchess Bake Shop's gives off a "touch of class". In fact, the photos that I've seen reveal an airy open space with beautiful architecture, crown moldings, a fabulous chandelier, fresh flowers and furnishings that are simply divine~
Since, I am a visual person, I've gotta tell you....... I was hooked on this shop by these photos alone.....
Now it's time to reveal some of the baked goods that you can expect to indulge in at Duchess Bakery Shop. Choose from delectable pies, petit macaroons, buttery yet flaky croissants, dark chocolate-coated eclairs or scrumptious sandwiches . I have simply listed a few items but there is a multitude of options available. Thanks to my friend's recent visit to this shop over the past weekend, I had the pleasure of enjoying an earl grey shortbread cookie yesterday. My verdict??? Absolutely delicious.....it literally melted in my mouth!!! And that my friends, became the second reason why I have fallen in love with this bakery.
I've learned (through a quick visit to their site), that all products are made in house entirely from scratch. Peeps....that means no mixes, no preservatives and no short cuts. Well after devouring that cookie? I believe it:)
I make a couple trips to Edmonton each year, so I'll be swinging by for a treat next time I'm in town~
