Paulo’s Cake Shop is located at 1255 St Clair Avenue West. The shop serves traditional Brazilian treats, including its Bolo de Rolo.
According to the head baker and owner Paulo Trindade, the Bolo de Rolo (AKA Roll Cake), originates from the Brazillian state, Pernambuco.

“It originated as the adaptation of the Portuguese cake Colchão de Noiva (Bride’s Mattress), a rolled sponge cake filled with almonds,” said Trindade in a post.
“Upon arriving in Brazil, the Portuguese bakers changed the filling to the native guava fruit.” Unlike the traditional swiss roll cake, the Bolo de Rolo is thinner and has more layers.
At Paulo’s Cake Shop, guests can choose from guava, Dulce de Leche, or Chocolate. Customers can also find bolo de pote (cake in a cup), traditional pudding, and authentic Brazillian coffee, on its menu.
Add that to your list of must-try spots in the city!
