Great, but not in Victoria

Great place for a coffee or tea and a pastry. However, it's in Vancouver, not Victoria, as this listing says. The street address is correct, but there's no Pender Street in Victoria. Tripadvisor won't let me change it.

Delish food, my favourite is the procuttio cheese and pear baguette. Most days there's a line out the door.

First impression of this place is cozy friendly and very busy. Then I ordered the best sandwich, pear with Brie and prosciutto with walnut and balsamic vinegar. I see others have fresh and delicious salads. The baguette is really the key. Honestly, what's not to love?!

Egg, avocado, salami, all in the best baguettes I've had in awhile. Service is pretty quick and helpful too. Love the retro decor.

I added Finch's to my wishlist a long time ago and finally had the opportunity to come by for lunch a few days ago. I'm going to admit that it's altogether possible that my love for baguette and cheese along with the many positive reviews I've read resulted in an unrealistically high expectation because... I pretty disappointed by the food.... More

I discovered this cafe by chance, and I was pleasantly surprised. Their sandwiches are delicious, and they pull one of the best espressos I've had in awhile. The service is not fast, but I would not go there unless I had the time to sit and enjoy the ambiance. I would also not come during lunchtime unless I was getting... More

The overall location of the cafe is not very favorable. But the ambiance inside is rustic and unique! Nice food/drinks but very slow service and very expensive

I stumbled upon this gem of a cafe just as they were closing up today. having various food allergies, I was thrilled to find an almond milk latte and a salad that I could eat here... for just $15. I couldn't stay long because they wee closing but thoroughly enjoyed there time I was there and would highly recommend it... More

Finch's is an eclectic little spot convenient to both MacLeod's Books and the Victorian Hotel. It's also not far from the steam clock. On this visit, we were warming up and fortifying ourselves before the bookstore. I had a nice cup of black tea; my companion had a double short latte. Although it wasn't listed on the menu, I asked... More

As the title says, you can't beat their sandwiches on fresh baguettes. Service is typical hipster-surly for the most part, but it adds to the charm. Try the brief and grape (add walnuts).
