We ate lunch here on the recommendation of a local Victorian. Good food. Nice homemade soup. Decent selection.

My wife and I recently went to Took's on Cook for lunch. I had a reuben sandwich which was wonderful. Lots of sauerkraut and corned beef. My wife had the soup the day which she said was delicious. I will most certainly come back here again.

This is a hidden gem on the corner of fort and cook streets. It's both a bakery and cafe. It has a varied menu for both breakfast and lunch.

Never been here before even though they've been on Cook Street a very long time. We were very surprised how large this place is because from the outside it looks tiny. Wonderful coffee and made to order sandwiches for us that day. We'll be back another day though to try some of their amazing goodies they had on display.

We happened upon this place, but it's worth seeking out if you want a casual, authentic spot for locals. Great baked goods and hot drinks. I wouldn't seek it out for meal, but for snacks it's affordable as it's off the beaten path and good.

The food was better than the meeting, by far. A club house, custom made on bread, well, that tasted home baked. The lunch experience was added to by a gracious and friendly staff that really seemed to enjoy their craft! Lunch again soonest!

We ran across this place on accident while looking for a place to eat an early lunch. This bakery had all sorts of quick lunch items. We tried a quiche, ham and cheese croissant, and the Greek salad. All were delicious. The soup and sandwich I saw also looked good. We went back to the counter for dessert and had... More

I love the split pea soup here!!! Once I arrived starving just as they tuned off the open sign. I had my heart and my taste buds set on some of their soup to warm and fill me up on a cold dark night. I knocked and the lady let me in so I was able to get my soup... More

This is our go to spot for comfort food every time we are in Victoria, BC. Shepherd's Pie is outstanding as usual. Their homemade pastries don't disappoint. Their soup and made to order sandwiches are divine. Is you are looking for a great lunch spot you won't be dis-satisfied.
