Roselle West

Roselle has this location in addition to their original spot in Corktown. They’re known for making some of the best baked treats and cookies in the city.

The place was originally named for a crepe-making tool, as one of their first innovations was crepe cake.

Formerly home to an art gallery, the high-ceilinged space is much more open than the other and twice as large, offering a view into the laboratory that is the Roselle kitchen. 

Though there’s no seating here unlike the other space, the two do share statement artwork with the same message: dessert makes you happy.

Something they do have here you won’t find at the other spot is a line of viennoiserie made fresh daily that they started selling when they opened up here.

What they’re calling the OG Croissant ($3.25) embraces what owner Stephanie Duong terms their “all butter philosophy,” extremely soft and stretchy on the inside, almost wet, with a perfect crispy, buttery, caramelized exterior.

An Ontario ham and gruyere croissant ($4.25) lets Roselle finally take the plunge with a savoury item, smoky Black Forest ham from Bespoke Butcher combining sweetly with salty, creamy-aged gruyere and rich buttery pastry, poppy seeds speckling the top.

More out-of-the-box viennoiserie includes the Bostock ($4.75), basically a twice-baked portable French toast made with Roselle’s own brioche soaked in orange blossom syrup and topped with almonds.

They’re also doing Kouign Amann ($4.50), made with the same laminated dough as croissants but richer and in different shapes, one kind coated in cinnamon sugar.

You’ll still be able to find the $8 pastries they’re known for, creations like banana and black sesame eclairs as well as pistachio honey St-Honores.

A Choco-Hazel ($8) is actually flourless, their only gluten-free cake option, a dome of milk chocolate mousse with hazelnut praline and a crunchy dacquoise base, coated in a mirror-like dark chocolate glaze.

The Paradise ($8) is like a tropical vacation in cake form, basically imitating the flavours of a pina colada with lime coconut white chocolate mousse, mango passion fruit cremeux and a coconut dacquoise.

Their famous cookies go for $3.50 each and come in varieties like double chocolate, coffee caramel, chocolate chunk or the “Dulcey” with white chocolate and hazelnut.

They also do “shorties,” ($3.25) shortbread cookie sandwiches in black sesame and Earl Grey varieties.

Roselle Toronto

Another thing only available here are fruit sodas ($4.25) made with the soda water that’s on tap and the same fruit purees they use for their signature caramels.

Roselle Toronto

When I’m in, one flavour is a floral strawberry rose, the other a super refreshing and tropical passion fruit that I prefer.

Take care to note Roselle is cashless.
