If you are passionate about doughnuts, Jelly Modern Doughnuts is the place to go! Jelly Modern Doughnuts is Canada’s original gourmet doughnut bakery café. Their delicious doughnuts, uniquely crafted by talented pastry chefs and bakers, are made fresh on site throughout the day. They only use the finest quality ingredients — locally sourced and organic whenever possible.
Jelly Modern Doughnuts offers a diverse selection of flavours fit for traditionalists and adventurists. Here, you’ll find everything in a variety of hand-dipped and hand-filled, to cake and yeast doughnuts, ranging from the Classic Jelly for mild mannered folks, as well as Maple Bacon for those seeking a little more flare. Best of all, the doughnuts are made fresh throughout the day to ensure that every customer receives a superior product. Jelly Modern Doughnuts indulges with delightful flavours such as Crème Brûlée, S’mores, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter Cup, Whoopie Pie, and many more. You can keep track of what doughnuts will be available on the day of your visit on their website. There’s even a 'Flavour of the Month' and a Saturday 'Chef's Creation' to keep repeat customers guessing.
These are simply the best doughnuts anyone has ever tasted. The doughnuts are made preservative free with local and organic ingredients. Every morning they start fresh. Each doughnut is unique, never frozen or partially baked. Their pastry chefs and bakers prepare all of the doughnuts on site. Even the glazes, icings, and fillings are made from scratch, including the marshmallows.
Jelly Modern Doughnuts first came across our radar when they won the "Donut Showdown" on Food Network Canada’s sizzling new competition series. It was a show stopping "Bollywood meets Hollywood" variation of Jelly’s famous Salted Caramel that scored big in the final showdown. Featuring chili and cumin dusted popcorn and cashews, topped with deep fried carrot curls, the combination clearly caught the imagination of the celebrity judges. The doughnut bakery café is owned by two sisters, Rita and Rosanne Tripathy, who first started the business in Calgary.
Note: The Toronto location is now closed.
