This is a bit of gem in a rather obscure spot. It is beside the goose trail, close to the hospital and close to where I live. After gym some of us to frequent a different spot for coffee until we found the Nest. This...More

I enjoy the coffee, cakes and cookies at The Nest. Well located on The Galloping Goose Trail about 40 minutes from downtown Victoria. Nice atmosphere inside and nice to be able to sit outside in the warmer months.

Walked here a few times.. hidden from the trendy croud, you've got to commit a bit to get here on foot, or cheat and drive; great drinks and snacks and a beautiful patio with umbrellas!

Called in here after walking round Thetis Lakes. Great find right next to the Galloping Goose cycle path. Good coffee and great blueberry cake. Lovely deck area where we were able to soak up the first outing of Spring sunshine. Very reasonably priced.
