About Duchess

World-Class Pastries in the Heart of Edmonton

Open since October 2009, Duchess Bake Shop is located on bustling 124th Street in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We offer the perfect blend of classic French pastries, like macarons, croissants, and éclairs, and Alberta favourites, like brownies and butter tarts.

At Duchess we make all of our products daily in-house from scratch—no mixes, no preservatives, no shortcuts. The entire staff, from chef to server, is dedicated to providing exceptional products and service. We strive to use only the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible, such as the superb Valrhona chocolate from France, Anita's organic flour, 84% churn butter, and all-natural flavourings and extracts.

We are also proud to carry Matchstick Coffee from Vancouver, BC, whose high level of care and attention to the coffee they roast always impresses us. We worked closely with Matchstick to create the Bulldog espresso profile, which we feature in our café. It has a nutty flavour with notes of chocolate that make it a perfect match to enjoy with our pastries.

We also operate Duchess Provisions, located at 10934 119 St, serving home bakers and professional pastry chefs alike. There you can find the finest flours, preserves, extracts, chocolates, and confections, as well as bakeware, tools, and cookbooks, for all your baking needs.

In Provisions, be sure to check out our award-winning cookbook, Duchess Bake Shop—a 288-page hardcover book that tells our story, showcases our recipes, and provides clear, detailed instructions and step-by-step photographs. Try your hand at baking everything from our macarons, croissants, cookies, and tarts to more complicated French classics such as mille-feuilles, éclairs, and the glorious St. Honoré cake.
