“Best bakery on Vancouver Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

True grain bakery is a little slice if paradise tucked away into Cowichan Bay. Their bread is to die for and is worth every penny. As for their other products, the pretzels, cookies, and chocolate sweet buns are family favorites. True Grain is our first stop for treats, sick day pick-me-ups or just because!

“Great bread!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

What else can one say about a bakery, except that the bread was wonderful! We only had one multigrain loaf, but super fresh and hearty

“Executive Chef”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

if you are a bread connoisseur you may be disappointed. The presentation is alluring, but the bake goods do not warrant the price. Cobb produces a better product at a lower price.

“Very Cute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Was in Cowichan Bay strictly on a fluke! Looking at the shops and noticed this one. My wife is into whole grain flour and baking with it. The Miller was very accommodating and showed us how through the mill room. We bought some of the baked goods and they were good, albeit a bit pricey.

“Excellent Breads/Rolls and Pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Great products as well as a great presentation.
Only tried a couple of their products (rolls and croissants) and was very impressed.
Would've stayed for coffee and dessert but we just did not have the time.

I would try them again.
