We were so eager for baked goods after eating some of the Little Vienna Bakery bread at Stone Pipe Grill. It was closed, unfortunately, so we stopped in at Otter Point which was right next door to Stone Pipe. Immediately upon entering we knew we had made a mistake, but the owner came right up and started trying to really sell us hard on the random few stale looking goods he had in the case. Fortunately for us, he announced he only took cash (visa machine was sitting right there), so we were able to get out quickly. Not really sure what was going on in there, but it didn't look appetizing. Had much better luck with baked goods at the local grocery.

Disappointed by food quality. Chocolate chip cookies had 2 or 3 chips per cookie. Service was very disappointing.

My wife and I were looking for a light lunch after whale watching and stopped in the first bakery we saw. Nothing had prices on it, very poor looking selection, and just an overall uneasiness over the quality of a bakery it was. We were both hungry so we forged ahead and ordered a piece of carrot cake and a brownie. It came to $8.50!!! We were on vacation and in order to avoid a hassle or complication I bit my lip and took it being a bit over priced. We chose to sit in the car and eat and the food ended up being terrible. My wife's "brownie" was just a terrible mixture of icing, some nuts and some actually brownie squished together and melted. My carrot cake was ok but was definitely not made in the past couple days. We should have avoided the bakery and gone to the Market (where we inevitably ended up) to purchase better snacks and treats. There is also another bakery in the next plaza down that could only be better.

Stopped in to pick up family treats. Little selection and the cookies were stale.

Facing a road closure on a Sunday morning, we stopped in for a few bakery treats and buns for our lunch; the other bakery in Sooke is closed on Sunday's.
The treats: cinnamon bun, date square, Nanaimo bar, and a chocolate cheesecake like bar that the owner did not know the contents of (he thought the white bits inside were nuts but was not sure!) were ok but not particularly fresh and were quite expensive.
The cheese buns for our lunch were "fresh baked" but tasted 3 days old.
We got samosas too and they were quite good.
Stick with their specialties (samosas) and skip the baked goods, just not worth it.
