Dutch Bakery & Coffee Shop
718 Fort St.
On a weekend trip to Victoria, I stopped in to the Victoria Tourist Centre. After inquiring about where to go during the day, I asked about a good place for breakfast and the employee suggested Dutch Bakery. It was just down the street and we were starving so off we walked. When you first peer into the window, it looks like a small bakery but hidden in the back is a homey diner filled with locals. We were seated quickly and our coffee cups were never empty. Our server was very friendly and took our order promptly. It was nice being in this local diner. There are great pictures on the walls and the history of the place is wonderful. Our food came really quickly and it was exactly what I wanted and expected; basic diner food! Great potatoes, perfect poached eggs, bacon and toast!
As I like to eavesdrop, I overheard many people (almost everyone) saying how they come here every weekend. The locals love this place and we were impressed too, we tried to go back on Sunday but unfortunately it was closed. I would definately go back when I am in Victoria again. The price was right; it was $20.00 for two full breakfasts and two coffee's. It's a nice way to enjoy breakfast and get the goods that the Victorians in the know do!
