Dutch Bakery... A Must!!!

A trip to Victoria would not be complete without a trip to the Dutch Bakery. We've been going here for close to 40 years! The vacation treat of all times. There is a chocolate side which was my favourite side for many years... While my husbands fave was the bakery side. Now it's my fave as well... read more

Their specialty is breakfast and they do it well. For a homemade meal at a reasonable price this is the place . It is not fancy but the staff and food makes you feel at home

We went there looking for a meal but left eating a snack... and some awesome dessert. The place was super clean and nostalgic. The wait staff were certainly working hard but they were excellent. Once the food was ordered we were very excited to eat but got a good laugh when we saw the size. That was the only disappointing... More

This is a very good, traditional bakery. Many different options in different sizes, according to the size of your sweet tooth. So good, we had to go back another day. Efficient service. Reasonable prices. Very nice quality. Cookies, tarts, bars, etc. Yum.

Such a great atmosphere and constantly busy which is a good thing. Everything is cheap and delicious. Definitely try the vanilla slices... Or a dozen!!

Back after 50 years! My grandma wanted to relive her time here when she was a new mom. Amazing Reubens!! Marble bread was so fresh. Milk shakes were also very good. The pastries ordered after lunch were dissapointing. Apple strudel was cold and dry. Parliament dessert was also rock hard.

We were in Victoria on vacation when we discovered this place. We only did take out from their bakery but everything we tried on several visits was amazing. Our favorites were the fresh raspberry tarts and the croissants. I highly recommend buying bakery items here and stepping next door (street level coffee and tea) for a beverage to take back... More

We stopped in yesterday as we were walking Fort St. "Dreamt" about the pastries last night....so when we were in town today we purchased two of the same. Almost looks like a Napolean. He had one and I had one...and we took them to Serious Coffee. HOW yummy. So good......and not sickeningly sweet. I think we just may stop for... More

I happened upon the Dutch Bakery and so glad I decided to stop in! I love the family pictures on the wall and the diner style counter spots for solo customers. Cute, quaint, friendly service and best of all an amazing breakfast!!!

Have been going here for 30 years! Love the croquettes and the pastries -- especially the mocha ones. Reminds me of my home country. Any time we're in Victoria, lunch is a must at the Dutch bakery!
