We went in for a pot of tea, I was going to have a slice of cream cake. We ordered tea, one with soy milk and was told sorry we can't serve you we have no soy milk as it goes off too quick and she walked away leaving us at the table!

I can't remember the first time I entered this shop years ago, but Fort Street used to be our favourite antique store browsing place, so we must have happened upon this shop because we were hungry, and the enticing window display filled with delicious looking desserts drew us in. Every time we visit Victoria, we simply MUST go here. A... More

We stopped by for pastries one morning. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. We had cranberry cheese Danishes (our favorite). Apple strudel also good and strawberry shortcake which was so good! We tried to go back for more Danishes but they are closed Sundays. So sad!

You might have to extend your holiday in Victoria just to visit this bakery on more than one occasion. There are so many sumptuous choices from in-house made chocolates to cakes of all descriptions. They even have a restaurant area so you can enjoy your delectable choice in short order.

We'd walked by the Dutch Bakery and Coffee Shop after they'd closed and wanted to have breakfast there, and we were very glad we did! The food we had was "traditional," not glitzy or pretentious --- just tasty and satisfying. The service was friendly, welcoming, and efficient. In fact, our server took time to assist an elderly customer who had... More

We love this bakery, and its old-fashioned atmosphere, and the quality of the baked goods we chose was outstanding. The service was pleasant, efficient, and we enjoyed perusing the various types of cake slices, cookies, and other items that we could choose from to take back to our hotel for snacking later in the day.

This place has breakfast at a reasonable price, quick service and amazing staff. We had to go twice we enjoyed it that much. We also had a huge variety of baked goods while we were there, try it all. It's amazing. You can't be disappointed with a homemade bakery that has been around over 50 years.

Definitely a taste of Europe. Artistically decorated cakes and baked goods. Seasonal promotions are outstanding i.e. Easter, Christmas etc. Established for many years. If you have a "sweet tooth" this is a "must" in Victoria. Worth a visit just to window shop. Open your purse.
