eat more cake - read more books

Word On The Street, a national book & magazine festival, takes place on Sunday, September 27. WOTS Toronto (which coincides with similar events in Kitchener, Halifax and Vancouver) will take place rain or shine at Toronto's Queen's Park from 11am to 6pm.

One of the exhibitions we're looking forward to is the new Cook'n'Books Stage which will host food demos and samplings - don't miss Elizabeth Baird at 3pm (plus lots more!)

For more details, visit:

PS - Don't forget to make a pitstop first at Dufflet Downtown (787 Queen St. W.) to grab some take away nibbles including pumpkin tarts, smores brownies and caramel crackle!

hello #TIFF09 - can you see us now?

We understand completely how difficult TIFF can be on the eyes ... what with the flashing lights, the silver screens and the sunny patio meetings - your irises must be spinning!

To make it easier for YOU (the CAKE craver) to find US (the CAKE baker), we've had new sandwich boards made for our 3 Toronto cafes.

Here's what they look like on a real-sidewalk on a real-sunny day outside of Dufflet Pastries on Queen Street West (near Bathurst)

Delivery to your suite, yacht or screening room can be arranged in case you can't get away ... check out for on-line ordering of cakes, tarts, cookies and dessert trays.
