This is where I report for coffee and delicious baked treats - it's in the Hudson Market in downtown Victoria. The chef is French trained and it shows. Brioche. Crossaints. C'est si bon! And very friendly staff.

My friends and I went on a tour with A Taste of Victoria food tours and this was one of the stops. We had a very delicious sample of bread and pain au chocolat. I've already gone back many times since! Great little bakery.

I went to the old Victoria Market which I liked, but thought it would be an actual market place more along the lines of fresh produce, meats, cheese and such, but it was a little of that and a few restaurant/dining stalls. However on the upper level was this great place "French Oven" and it was terrific. Fresh breads and pastries and everything I got was top notch. Just like the good stuff I've had all over France, and the prices were pretty reasonable too. I can safely recommend this place if you like great baked goods and won't settle for low quality as long as you don't mind paying a bit more for it. This is the place to go. Excellent choices here and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Enjoy!

This is my absolute favourite bakery in Victoria! The BEST croissants, sourdough, and cinnamon buns in town. They have recently started making traditional french pastries as well and they are to die for (especially the lemon meringue tarts!) Very friendly service everytime I go. I highly recommend checking out this amazing bakery!

Can't say enough about this spot! Delicious baked treats of ever kind. Love the focaccia buns for panini sandwiches and the frozen take and bake croissants at a weekend breakfast game changer!
