Willie's Cafe & Bakery

537 Johnson Street

Prices: $


Willie's Cafe & Bakery is the first bakery in British Columbia. Founded in 1887, it was also the longest running bakery until that part of the operation closed in 1976.

Some cool historic features include the original granite slabs in the sideway directly outside the entrance and the original glass basement windows. 

Willie's is one of the best places to eat in Victoria for brunch. The menu is varied and inexpensive for a local hotspot. The staff are excellent too, and especially welcoming for families with young children.
