My mother and I had spent two beautiful days in Port Renfrew and were returning home via the circle route - through Sooke, Victoria and back to Duncan. I had noted the bakery's great reviews before leaving home and though it an excellent place to break our trip and enjoy lunch. Brilliant decision! We had the daily special -- crepes... More

Even though we live in Sooke, we work in Victoria. We ventured out to Little Vienna as we were on vacation and had the time to visit. What a pleasant surprise! Great food with gluten free options for me and lovely atmosphere and patio for those lovely sunny mornings. Will be returning on the weekend as I've heard the eggs... More

For those that work out of town during the week, Little Vienna Bakery & Cafe is a definite "must go" spot on Saturdays for the most incredible authentic European crepes, waffles, toasts and coffees! We can make virtually anything with gluten free ingredients as well and so our friends with dietary restrictions can also enjoy the very best! Please come... More

Fun little Viennese style cafe with superbly prepared cakes and pastries. Fun place and relaxing place to bring a cook, sip coffee, and have a delicious pastry. Nice people.

This bakery was a treat to visit. The bread was fresh and healthy. We bought a delicious cake for my son's birthday. It also provides lunches to eat in or take out. There are also higher quality pastas, teas, coffees, and cheese.

A must stop in Sooke - great sandwiches. Very nice atmosphere, it is painfully obvious that the staff and owner take pride in running a quality establishment! Blueberry tarts, mmmmmm.

We had the eggs benedict for breakfast, it was fresh and delicious. Would have gone back for lunch or a snack but did not have enough time. A picnic lunch would likely be a great take away.

I believe that was the day we featured Blackstone Eggs Bennie for breakfast. It's a good thing you were here when we opened at 9, because we were completely sold out by 11:30. Quite a few people stop in at Little Vienna Bakery on their way to one of the beautiful beaches in the area to grab a picnic lunch,... More

I really enjoyed this cafe. It made me fee like I stepped back in time during my Vienna trip. Awesome pastry, cakes and cappuccinos! There's a breakfast menu to choose from if you want to eat inside or outside. Delightful!

Stopped in on a Saturday morning for muffins. We certainly have had better elsewhere. No offer of heating them up, no butter offered either. They were very dry and crumbly. Won't return.

We stopped in here to pick up some treats for Mother's Day. The bakery did not have a lot of selection left when we arrived (3:00pm) but we expected that. The service was great and the treats we bought were delicious. It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Thank you for understanding the difference between value and cost, because so many people don't. After many years in business, it still surprises me when some people compare the price (and sometimes even quality) of our products against other mainstream places. As the expression goes, it's like comparing apples to oranges! Consistent quality of our products and service is key... More
