Tired of pushy, hipster locales? Visit this spot for a no nonsense meal

There are a lot of restaurants these days that are going a little overboard with their menus, pompous servers and customer expectations. You won't find that at the dutch bakery. Slide into one of the booths or sit at the bar, and experience fast, friendly services without all the frills. You can... read more

This fantastic bakery is presently closed to allow the staff some time off with there families! Scheduled to be open again in early February, so we will be back for our favorite pastries!

2 words -- Chocolate Eclair. Wow! Simply the best chocolate eclairs on planet earth! Reminiscent of the best ones from back in the day, when I was growing up in Montreal and the ones from Woodwards bakery when it was still a going concern in Edmonton. The toffee shavings on the top are what really blows your mind! Get in... More

This coffee shop began back in the 1950's with the same family and ancestors continuing to bake these delectable desserts, their famous homemade lemon pie. Their meatball soup is to die for along with the beautiful salads. This is one bakery and coffee shop that should be a must to see when you arrive in Victoria.

The look and atmosphere are so old school cool that we ended up being pretty disappointed that the pastry was fairly average in flavor. But we were there midday. Maybe better in the morning????

I usually come here a couple of times a week either for breakfast, lunch or tea and a Danish. The service is good, the food is simple, comfort food and is reasonably priced and the atmosphere is cozy. It's a place where you can come with friends or somewhere where you feel comfortable having a meal by yourself.

My wife and I had the weekday breakfast special $6.00 plus each - two eggs - potatoes, bacon and toast. The food was really good - especially the bacon and the rye bread (not on the menu but the nice gal made it happen). The menu says only two strips of bacon but we each got three - nice. The... More

We wanted to reacquaint with a friend my husband worked with in London 50 years ago and chose the Dutch Bakery for brunch. We ended up sitting and talking for over two hours and the wait staff were very generous and professional in not hurrying us on. I can vouch for the chicken burger and my husband had the reuben,...

We've been coming to Victoria for 35 years and it's a tradition for us to come here. The place looks like a 1950s diner, but that's an attraction for me. I wouldn't change the decor for anything. They used to have signs on their tables that if you're only one or two at a table and things get busy, please... More

What a treat and special experience! From the moment you step into the Dutch Bakery, you're captivated by the sights and smells. The counter is the perfect place for a meal or snack with a family-run old school vibe that there aren't enough of these days. From the bakery displays to the history, a true special visual and culinary experience!
