A quaint family run bakery based restaurant with a rich long term history of serving Victorians. Breakfast and lunch menu selections are basic but tasty and reasonably priced. The bakery offers a wide range of offerings which will meet every one's needs. A downtown location is also an asset.

Friends had extolled the virtues of Dutch Bakery and Diner for some time. When we announced we were gong to Victoria for Valentine's day get away we were advised that we should try it so we did. Really nice staff but even better were the pastries. Nice and light, rich but not too sweet. A good variety between sweets and baked rolls , turnovers and pies with meat filling. You can take out or dine inside. Only few minutes walk from our hotel, it was nice to have breakfast like a local. I would recommend anyone visiting the Victoria harbor/city area to try Dutch Bakery & Diner. You won't be disappointed.

The coffee is good but there are other places in Victoria that serve better. However, the pastry is very fine indeed. We took home two large pieces of “gevulde koek,” which the restaurant calls “flying saucer” and shared one after dinner. Just as good as it always was! And the prices are more than reasonable.

Our family of 6 sat down for a late lunch. We asked if the kitchen was still open. The waitress said it absolutely was and we still had lots of time. All six ordered drinks and meals. 5 minutes later the waitress returned and informed us that the chef was not willing to make our meals as he stated the kitchen was closed. We were asked if we still wanted desserts. We did not. We will never be returning to the place again.

The bakery items we ordered were good. We enjoyed the sausage roll, beef pie, dutch donut but we're not that impressed with the mocha roll or porcupine pastry. 2/3 of the ladies working the bakery were downright cold to customers I guess because it is quite busy.

This place seems to be very busy, even though the parking out front is limited to a few paid stalls. There is a bakery in the front and a restaurant in the back. I arrived after 3:00pm, so that could be the reason why there was a very limited selection of items in the bakery display cases. Since I didn’t have much to choose from, I decided on a couple of Cheese Swirls and a Dutch Shortbread Cookie. The Cheese Swirls were very small, but they packed a really good flavour punch. They had a very distinct flavour and I could really taste the sharp Cheddar Cheese. I enjoyed it very much. The Dutch Shortbread Cookie was nice, light and tasty. It was slightly sweeter than a traditional Shortbread Cookie, but it was also tasty.

This place is the real deal! A vintage style bakery that makes incredible cookies, cakes and pastries. We got freshly made almond, cinnamon and berry danishes that were still warm. And probably the best Nanaimo Bar I’ve ever had.

There are a number of good breakfast places in Victoria and the Dutch bakery is among the best. Breakfast special about $10...delicious. Prompt and friendly service. Well known to the local folks...most tables filled up quickly. We will be back to try the lunch specials...

Busy spot on Fort Street. Had to join the queue for a late breakfast/early lunch - very popular spot. We really came for the food not the bakery - the diner offers all day breakfast at a very reasonable price. Service quick and friendly - our server really knew her stuff. Pleasant ambiance. Street parking, takes cards.

All fresh made Baked goods. Pies,cakes, pastries,meat pies, tarts, breads. All delicious and they serve a great breakfast too. Only open until 4 so don't wait if you want something from the bakery. They sell out of lots of items. You will enjoy this place.

We stopped in at the Dutch Bakery to enjoy pie and coffee! We had been told that this was a must stop and we were not disappointed. No surprise - there was a line up to get in!! Delicious baked good available at the front of the shop. A diner towards the back. Parking definitely an issue. We had parked on a side street - paid parking - and were walking up and down Fort Street.

I have been eating there off and on for many years as I live on Vancouver Island. Have never tasted anything better on the island to-date. It is worth visiting and eating in this cozy, people oriented diner. You won't be disappointed.

We love stopping in here when we visit Victoria. Not only is the food great but the atmosphere is a trip to the past. Delicious baked goods too. We usually come in for their daily lunch special and are always satisfied. I love the liver sandwich - so tasty and it's been on the menu forever.

I hadn’t been in this diner in many years but found it to be consistently amazing. The service was excellent. The food was great at a very reasonable price. The diner had a wonderful feel of a clean, decent restaurant. Loved it!

Opted for this cafe as the one we had originally headed for had a Q right out the door but we were not disappointed. Friendly staff and lots of choice. Both had the big breakfast. Odd having to pick either ham, bacon or sausage but this seems the Canadian way. Also we asked for no toast but tomatoes instead which we got but also got charged for? All in all a good breakfast and we grabbed a slice of cake to take away too. Lots of pastries and cakes and chocolates so hard to walk away empty handed!!
