Macarons have landed in Edmonton: Duchess Bake Shop

kazzy | Oct 6, 200911:20 AM     20

Duchess Bake Shop at 10720-124 Street has been open four days, but have the baking arsenal of a bakery open much longer. I'm highly impressed by this place.

French pastries are the specialties. This is not a boulangerie, so there are no bread products. But there are tiny, perfect French flavour flecked macarons ($1.25 for a toonie sized bite), meringues, madeleines and croissants ($1.50). Pies, shortbreads ($4.95 for 12 cookies), pain au chocolat ($1.75?)... the list goes on.

I highly recommend a visit. Some may find the prices a bit high, but I've been waiting for years for a place like this to open in Edmonton, and have been saving my pennies.
