My husband and I visited here twice while we were in Victoria. We loved it! The baked goods are fantastic and the coffee was great. The staff were also super pleasant and welcoming. Would definitely go there again our next time in Victoria.

We have walked, cycled and driven to this cafe several times, during our vacation in Ross Bay. The sunken patio is a perfect sun trap, but watch out for birds sitting above you, who seem to delight in pooping on customers! The bread, cakes and biscuits are wonderful, and the smell from the bakery adds to the perfect ambience. They... More

Victoria has a number of good cafes at reasonable prices but this one stands out, if not visibly. Set at a right angle to the street you have to make sure you don't overshoot if travelling by car. It's not fancy or garish, but it sure has an excellent selection of delectables (aka heavenly pastries) and friendly service. It's so... More

From the people to the food. this place has it all. Amazing pastries and lunch foods, a nice welcoming atmosphere and now they covered the outdoor patio so you can be outside year round. Can't say enough good things about this place and the staff.

Whether for a coffee, pastries or bread we have never been disappointed with the quality of the product or the service that we have received. The corn wheat bread is a particular favourite of the family

Very good coffee and terrific baking. Shortbread light and crumbly and cookies very good. Everything looked wonderful. A bit out of the way, but if you are nearby well worth a visit. We walked from Beacon Hill Park after watching the goats run! We sat outside on a beautiful summer day. Our server was helpful and pleasant

I'm a local who has been to this bakery many, many times and have yet to try something I didn't like. Their sandwiches and lunch salads are excellent. Their treats are addictive and the only complaint I have about their bread is that it is so tasty and popular that you've got to get there earlier in the day to... More

In the lower level of a non descript building on Fairfield Road, next door to The Clare Market is the Cottage Bakery and Cafe. It is a tiny affair but serves up some great baking, and sandwiches, as well as lattes, espresso and coffee... The almond croissants are sinful, the Lumberjack sandwich is mooreish,...we have sampled some of he other... More

I went to check out this place and was greeted by a unwelcoming and unfriendly co-owner of this bakery, so really had very little interest in buying anything. She was more concerned about counting sheets of paper rather than making eye contact with me or saying what normal humans working in a customer based business might say , like "good... More
