“Wonderful experience and satisfaction high”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

I stopped by the Bakery in Sooke on Saturday June 23, 2012 for a coffee and baking after walking the Wiffin Spit in Sooke.. our party included myself, my wife and my father in law. To complete the picture, we all had coffee's - cappucino and latte, as well as their baking specialty schnecke, and i had a glorious chunk of black forest cake... i was also fortunate enough to have a good chat with the owner (lady) whose name to forgot to ask.. she was extremely sociable, knowledgable and happy about her business - such great things to see.. and she is a very lovely lady... the food was really good, the coffees were very good and the owner's company was great along with the service.

Go check them out and enjoy yourself. I recommend the Bakery, and will certainly go back next time i am in Sooke.

The bakery was closed but the door open so we went in and they were pleasant and allowed us to purchase wonderful goodies.

“Excellent Lunch/Coffee Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This is a wonderful little cafe in Sooke where the baking is all done in-house and is of the highest quality. There is a great variety of pastries, breads and sandwiches made to order. The sort of place I would be in and out of every day if I lived in Sooke.

With Sooke only being a scenic 40 minute drive west of Victoria, we would be pleased to see you come by to enjoy more of our delicious treats. Please do note though that we are closed on Sundays and Mondays, but open from 9am to 5pm from Tuesday through Saturday.

“The Little Vienna Bakery is the most special placet to be and the food is incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

A friend and I visited the Little Vienna Bakery in Sooke yesterday. Oh My Goodness! Such an amazing European feeling .. from the beautiful artwork to the gilt framed mirrors and the beautiful furniture. The atmosphere was very welcoming, calm and relaxing ... a wonderful ambience, I felt so at ease, it was if I was visiting friends. I had a Cinnamon Schnecke, such delicate buttery flakey decadence. We sat outside and viewed the most beautiful array of wild flowers that grew profusely at the back, completely obliterating any traffic! It was as if we were transported away to the most special little garden area. Oh, and the food .. the best ever, bar none! I'm looking forward to my next visit for a Panini. One other thing, an unusual red and black winged butterfly appeared and sat on my hat. Good karma!

Thank you for uploading such great photos of our bakery along with the fantastic praises in your review. We make everything fresh-from-scratch and our talented pastry chef takes particular pride in folding our pastry dough 1328 times to achieve that light, flakey, melt-in-your-mouth texture you mentioned with our Schneckes. Please come and visit us again soon!

“WOW...WOW...WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

It's hard to believe that sleepy little Sooke has a bakery of this calibre, which in my opinion far surpasses just about any other I have visited in North America or Europe.
I have gone to the Little Vienna Bakery a number of times since the existing owners bought the business two years ago, and have never been disappointed with their lunch specials, coffees, sweet treats, imported cheeses and incredible Saturday morning crepe breakfasts. In fact I have even converted over from eating regular breads to their delicious gluten free bread, and have noticed great improvements in my general digestion and health. Who would've figured that I'd get healthier by going to a bakery!
Anyhow, I strongly recommend a visit to this incredible bakery where smells of the freshly baked goods, the sound of happy customers, and the sights of its beautiful interior and surrounding gardens will keep you coming back again and again!

It's great to hear from someone who has had international exposure to other bakeries and cafe's, and ranks us at the top of their list! We definitely work hard to provide only the best products in quality and consistency, as well as top notch customer service, and of course aesthetic appeal and comfort with the interior design of our business. We've travelled extensively around the world ourselves on numerous occasions, and strive to recreate our very best memories of those experiences here at the Little Vienna Bakery in Sooke.
