Visited this bakery on Family day Monday and was hoping to have a wonderful coffee and pastry with my husband. I was not impressed with the service provided because the cashier was playing with her long finger nails as we were looking for advice on...a pastry. Decided to purchase the sour cherry tart and Paris best. Both pastries looked delicious but were very hard to get your fork through. The tart flicked off the plate because it was more like a cookie then thin crust. The experience was made more unpleasant by the wide open door blowing cold wet air inside. There are 4 tables in a very small corridor area along a wall with the wide open door. The last table is less than one meter away from two toilets. The staff would not under any circumstances even close the door part way because they said they need air circulation. As an infection prevention and control officer I did not see any logic to this operation. You should not be freezing your patrons. Do not offer seats if you are unable to provide a reasonable comfortable temperature to enjoy your coffee. Instead I suggest have take out only.More

I am very sorry you did not have a pleasant experience. At the beginning of Covid it was strongly suggested that our front door remain open. For the most part that has been acceptable and tolerable. Over the long week with the inclement weather there...More

I have been buying things from this delicious bakery for about 1 1/2 years. The customer service is amazing and Rebecca and her team aim to please. A wonderful place to have tea and a treat. Their take on Bouche de Noel at Christmas was...so yummy and not too sweet. For the past 2 years they have supported the Victoria Chinatown Lioness Lions Club with a beautiful basket for our Silent Auction in 2020 and delicious Financiers this year for our Year of the Ox, Dinner in a Box in conjunction with the Chinatown Village RestaurantMore

Yesterday we rec'd a wonderful selection of desserts delivered right to our door by the friendliest of delivery people. What a grand assortment including my favourite carrot cake along with many even more elegant and delicious cakes. We're already working our way through them as...we cannot resist!More

I am so happy I found this little gem. The decor is exquisite. I felt like I was back in Paris as I nibbled my pastry and sipped my Americano. Lovely and not to be missed. 10/10!!

Great selection of French pastries and baked to perfection! The tarte au citron was so delicious and made me feel like I was in France! The hot chocolate is also very good and the staff are so lovely!

My husband and I discovered this little gem near the Airbnb we were staying at. The coffee and pastries were to die for! I had to go back every morning to try something new - the cheddar and onion scones were amaaaazing (I was actually...sad when I finished it lol). We devoured our treats outside and were entertained by the little sparrows that happily stole the crumbs from our feet (or straight from my hand lol). If I'm ever lucky enough to live in Victoria, I'd be here everyday!More

This is a very authentic patisserie in Victoria’s Chinatown. The owner is very involved in her business and you can tell she loves this new career after retiring from being a lawyer she was very passionate and extremely friendly. The pastries and Macaroons were delightful...to the eye and the tummy. A must try while in Victoria.More
