Our Ethos

Doré, the word for golden in French, symbolizes excellence. In baking this represents the artistry and passion that makes each dessert the best it can possibly be. Our emblem is a variation of a honeycomb, inspired by the hardworking and industrious honeybee.

Our sweet creations are meticulously crafted at the peak, golden out of the oven timing that deliver a quality gilded honey color, texture, and flavor in every pastry, cookie and cake we produce.
