If you like pastries, this is the place to go. The croissants, the danish, the streudel, the lemon tarts- I could go on as we've tried them all. We've been coming here for years and always bring our out of town guests. Sorry that the café next door has closed the door between them. It used to be a wonderful... More

While ordering a sausage roll and a deli sandwich, my wife and I peaked through a brick opening and spied the baker testing the next batch of bread coming fresh from the stone oven. The scene reminded me of Century Villages near where I used to live in Ontario. This is a great location, next to the Dockside Green development... More

A friend recommended this bakery and coffee shop and we were definitely not disappointed! The array of beautiful goodies was hard to choose from so I got a few samples to take on the road this morning.

If you love being treated rudely and paying a lot of money for tiny portions this place is just for you. We have tried several times and each time it gets worse. This time we had a hot cross bun and coffee. Super expensive & so tiny. The person who waited on us was so snotty. Loaves of bread used... More

We took our out of town friends here for a Saturday morning coffee date. The baking didn't disappoint. We had the apple strudel, the lemon tart, the fruit danish. I would highly recommend fol epi on Harbour Road, it is just off the Galloping Goose, easy to bike to!

Great baked good. Amazing service. Forget the coffee shop attached. Not worth the bother. Well worth the stop for the bread.

Great energy, good service and fantastic coffee. Was perfect for a business meeting to discuss some IT needs for our organization- good table set up and fairly private.

I did not list nice sandwiches and my favorite hot dogs. Tiny (one table, two chairs) space for eating inside, plenty of benches outside. A. C. Patella

I go to this bakery everytime i'm in Victoria. Clean with nice ambience. The coffee is smooth. They have quite a variety of pastries too. Get the pear danish, it's to die for.
