We stopped in for breakfast and we were very impressed. The food was excellent and the service superb! Our waitress was SO helpful in pointing out some local landmarks to visit. Give them a try, you wont be disappointed.

Definitely a taste of Europe. Artistically decorated cakes and baked goods. Seasonal promotions are outstanding i.e. Easter, Christmas etc. Established for many years. If you have a "sweet tooth" this is a "must" in Victoria. Worth a visit just to window shop. Open your purse.

We got a discount coupon from where we stayed so we gave this bakery a try. We bought half a dozen pastries and they were all very creamy and tasty. Excellent quality.

Entrees do not come with sides - these are extra. A small order of yam fries is $3.75. My rather lacking Reuben sandwich hardly had any sauerkraut. This sandwich should be heaping and as thick as a clubhouse. The breakfast wrap was solid - but no side fruit or anything. The person who had the bacon burger enjoyed it but... More

They have the best ginger cookies. Also they have these little cones filled with creme. They r so good. The croquettes r also classic. The best hot chocolate ever. Better than any high end coffee shop.

We've been coming to the Dutch Bakery for over 40 years. It's always been fun to pick a pastry from the large selection and take it back to our hotel or to have a snack on the ferry.

It's one of the places that I like to stop in at when I am in Victoria. It has homemade traditional old fashioned baked goods, not fancy or over the top but tasty and reasonably priced.

This is essentially a bakery with a coffee shop. The breakfast was 1/3 the price of most other places and it was fine. There is a restroom. The difference in price had to do with the organic qualities of other places and there was some difference in flavour. The pasteries, cakes, cookies and homemade chocolates were just lovely. A great... More

The Dutch Bakery reminds me of shops in Europe (but cheaper). Everything tastes good! Wonderful window and displays, so many choices. Buy an assortment and take them back to your hotel. Wash down the sweets with champagne for a special occasion. The helpful staff will help you choose from the vast selection.

I asked my better-half to pick up one of the "mocha cakes" for my 65th. birthday! I was not disappointed with this tasty pastry, which made my birthday celebration, just that much better!
