“A good old fashioned coffee shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

When you go in, you feel like you have stepped back in time 50 years..it looks a bit like a diner. We went in for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. For $3.15 we had coffee and a pastry. I had a bran muffin and my husband had a cranberry custard Danish. The coffee was hot and the cup was bottomless and the pastry was flavourful and fresh. They have an extensive menu and you can have just about anything you might like for breakfast.

A very retro diner with great eats and really great service! All day breakfast as well and the croquettes are quite popular :)

“A fun place right out of the 50s”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

If you like an old fashioned lunch counter with hand written specials on a blackboard then this is your kind of place. We had a lunch of wraps, one veggie and one turkey, and they were very good. The best part of the meal was the strawberry shortcake. It consisted of a creamy cake with your choice of chocolate or almond icing and a layer of fresh strawberries. Delicious!

“Decadent goodies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stepping into the Dutch bakery, is simply wonderful! I have known of this place, since the 1970's and it remains very much the same. The pastries are simply delectable, and this is high praise, since I am Sous chef and have tried pastries from many restaurants, located in different places.

“A favourite with the locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The line up for lunch did not diminish during the hour or so we were there. This bakery is an institution in Victoria. Locals who have been coming for years are well accommodated by the staff. The menus has something for all tastes. The service is efficient, the staff friendly and professional. You will enjoy looking at the large blowup pictures of this bakery through the years. Brings back memories of a simpler time, home cooking and where good service and value were expected.
