Popular bakery just permanently closed their newest Toronto location

Less than a year after opening, dessert shop Roselle has announced that it's closing its West Queen West location permanently. 

Roselle Desserts, one of Toronto's most popular patisseries for the soft serve and baked treats, says it's decided to focus on its original Corktown store.

"Since lockdown began in March, we've had a lot of time to reflect and decide how to navigate our new reality," wrote owners Stephanie Duong and Bruce Lee in an Instagram post on Friday.

We're saying goodbye to Roselle West. ⁣ ⁣ It wasn't easy to come to this decision. We're blessed to have gone on this journey of building out a beautiful space and watching our business grow in another part of the city. It's been exhilarating and exhausting. We have no regrets.⁣ ⁣ Since lockdown began in March, we've had a lot of time to reflect and decide how to navigate our new reality. With the uncertainty facing our industry, we have decided that it is best to return to our roots and operate out of a single location on King Street East.⁣ ⁣ We're going to miss the space and community we've created at Dovercourt but we still have so much to be thankful for. We're going back to the shop that started it all with so much support, love and gratitude. ⁣ ⁣ We're going to be okay.⁣ ⁣ We have a lot of fun things planned for the summer and happier announcements are coming soon.⁣ ⁣ Stay healthy. Stay strong. Thank you all and see you on the other side. ⁣ ⁣ All our love,⁣ Steph & Bruce ⁣
