Roselle Desserts Toronto | Divine Pastry Shop on King Street East

Roselle Desserts is a pastry shop on 362 King Street East, Toronto that you have to visit! When we were planning our Toronto trip, there was a few places on our “to try” / “must eat list”. After our disappointing experience at Dufflet Pastries (apparently I got suckered into  very cute vintage website that propagandas people to eat more cake), we had to redeem ourselves.

Roselle is relatively new bakery after opening in February 2015. Still relatively quiet during the day in Corktown even with Canary District developments, makes it a perfect day for us to visit! After a long drive to Niagara Falls, some delicious desserts will make me happy!

Owners, Stephanie Duong and Bruce Lee who are both graduates of George Brown College, traveled and worked in both Paris and Hong Kong. Bruce had worked for a Michelin starred Chinese Chinese-French fusion restaurant; while Stephanie apprenticed at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon.

We loved our time chatting with the Stephanie about her delicious cakes. So much that we almost forgot to take pictures of her beautiful and delicious desserts. Stephanie is ever so genuine and down to earth.

The bakery itself is simple, minimalist and bright. We liked the white walls with a splash of red chairs. The cake fridge glows with petite perfections: banana cream eclairs, Mille Crepe, Earl Grey cakes, Turtle tarts, Loco Coco etc. Roselle’s desserts is nothing short from precision. Stephanie herself loves to explore different pastry shops and even gave us a few good recommendations!

On the table are two incredibly superb treats along with a robust and aromatic coffee from Detour Coffee Roastery.

Banana Cream Eclair: Not your typically choux dough filled with a cream and smothered with icing. This banana cream eclair is sophisticated. Bananas are caramelized, deglazed with rum and set on fire. The cream filling is made with vanilla bean. The sweetness and banana flavor pay off is huge!

The Earl: Chocolate Earl Grey mousse, toasted cream, chocolate flakes. An airy and velvety smooth cake with gentle black tea infused bergamot. Packed with as much flavor possible without overpowering either. The Earl is so good I could eat a whole 6″ cake myself!

 

Earl Grey Shortbreads: Stephanie was such a darling to pack us some of these along with some nougats for our flight home. These makes great souvenirs treats and carries well. To continue the Earl Grey theme, these shortbreads are light but so buttery! Filled with white chocolate and candied orange to brighten and tie in all the flavors.
