Description: A meeting place, cafe, bistro, and so much more. Little Vienna Bakery is owned and operated by Susan & Michael Nyikes. Their vision has been to create an authentically European bakery in Sooke that provides artisan breads, pastries and cakes using only the very best ingredients and old-world techniques. Having established a strong reputation for fresh, all-natural products and a loyal following of customers over the past 10 years, the Nyikes’ draw upon their own European backgrounds and travels throughout the world to continue the evolution of Little Vienna Bakery. Having professionally trained and dedicated staff members in place, maintaining a very high level of quality ingredients and baking techniques, and providing consistent quality products has continued the success of the business. Little Vienna Bakery offers beautiful hand-formed artisan breads, buns and baguettes, as well as lovingly prepared decadent pastries, pies and cakes…..and yes, everything is made “fresh-from-scratch” using only the finest ingredients; the majority of which are locally sourced and organic.More than just baked goods, the bakery also offers a unique selection of fine cheeses, market & deli items, an expansive breakfast & lunch menu, specialty coffees & teas.It’s important to note that the bakery also caters to those with special dietary needs and also produce vegetarian, gluten, dairy, sodium and sugar free items. Susan & Michael have completely renovated the interior of Little Vienna Bakery to be authentically European; complete with new full-length Baroque-style mirrors, gold chandeliers, ornate crown mouldings, period-correct furniture, and a collection of hand-painted Austrian murals by world-renowned French artist Philippe Metaireau who was specially commissioned for the bakery. To help bring the inside ambiance to the outdoors, the owners have also developed a stunning 600 square foot paving-stone courtyard complete with a beautifully ornate 3 tiered Italianate fountain, all set within the expansive raised flower gardens on the bakery grounds. Whether it’s crepes for breakfast with a loved one, lunch with a group of friends, or a coffee and dessert with a good book, everyone is welcome to enjoy the beautiful spaces that have been created at Little Vienna Bakery. Please come by and have an incredible experience where all your senses will be stimulated!

We did a 4200km road trip all around the Pacific Northwest and hit over 30 restaurants in the process. At the completion of our journey when we asked our kids what restaurant was their favourite of all the spots we visited they said the "Little Vienna Bakery" and said that their flour less hazelnut crunch bar was their all time...

As former Calgarians ourselves, it is always exciting for us to have visitors from "back home". One of the greatest pleasures we receive as bakery owners is to see kids excitedly press their little faces against our pastry case and listen to their oooh's and awwww's! Thank you so much for dropping by and we are honoured to learn that... More

Arrived after they had finished for lunch, but they still accommodated us and we had an excellent lunch. Very clean, friendly and tasty food. The pie was delicious. A great place to stop in for fresh food. Ate outside in a nice little garden, staff very friendly and would certainly go back.

I am acquainted with a couple of great bakeries in Denver as well; Humble Pie Store, Beet Box, and of course the Rheinlander Bakery in Arvada are some of my personal favourites. I am glad you found us on your visit to beautiful Sooke and are pleased you enjoyed a variety of our delicious goodies! More

The pastries really are the star here. On Saturdays there are creeps with limited range of fillings, but nice. Skip the French toast - very mediocre. The pizza special was okay. You need to have time here as the service is not quick. Coffee is pricey and you will need several cups if you are waiting. The pastries and bread... More

Thank you for your review. With Saturday being "crepe day" at LVB we definitely see a lot of hungry people walk through our doors and so service is definitely a bit slower on those days. With a variety of traditional European crepes in both sweet and savoury choices, I can see how you may believe our French Toast would be... More

My friend and I were just out exploring our own backyard (we live in Victoria), and decided to stop for a little refreshment. We were met by a very friendly owner, who helped us decide what we wanted. I had the amazing broccoli salad, and then one of the equally amazing Schnecke with a very good cup of coffee made... More

I am glad you found us and am thrilled you enjoyed the Umbria brand coffee. For the first ten years we carried the Oughtred brand coffee and developed a very strong following.

Gorgeous little cafe right in town. Decorated like a cafe in Europe. The coffee was fantastic, the croissant breakfast sandwich delicious. The service and conversation with the owner was excellent. The outdoor patio was gorgeous with flowers in bloom and hidden from the road. Highly recommend this place!!!

Thanks for your kind review. Our outdoor courtyard set amidst our beautiful flower gardens is a huge draw for people, and with our three tiered fountain bubbling away and a latte in hand, many feel transported to far away places! More

Saw it off to the side of the road. Don't pass it by. Excellent home made deliciousness. They know how to make a great cup of java. Wonderful pastries.

As a travelling couple we are dietary challenges to a lot of cafes we go to being a vegetarian + vegan couple. The staff at Little Vienna were so accommodating we had one of the most memorable meals of our week long trip here. Highly recommended.

We so very much appreciate our customers with dietary restrictions because it helps us "raise our bar" in regards to offering a greater variety of specialty products to a wider demographic. Thanks for visiting Little Vienna Bakery and we look forward to seeing you again! More

By slow service I mean that I have walked out of the bakery due to the lengthy wait at the cash till. It's not that there are many in the line, it's that it seems to take forever to process each customer.

Hi there and thank you for your comments.

By far the best place in Sooke for a bowl of soup or a sandwich. Choice is limited but to be expected in a small town establishment. What they do is done very well. I always pick up a loaf of their oat bread when it is available.(usually on Tuesdays)

Our Honey Oat loaves are a huge favorite and sell out very quickly, so I am very pleased you were able to get some on your last visit from Victoria.
