Located in the heart of the beautiful downtown Victoria BC (on Vancouver Island), Crust Bakery opened it's doors in September 2013. Shortly thereafter, it was named Victoria's Best Bakery, and has established loyal following of locals and tourists alike. Crust has developed a reputation for excellence, serving exquisite baked goods and outstanding coffee.
Crust Bakery is owned and operated by Crystal Moore (Front of House) and Chef Tom Moore (Kitchen). With a background in owning and operating patisseries and fine dining restaurants in Australia together, Crystal and Tom have a serious passion for serving excellent products, which are made from scratch using fresh local and seasonal ingredients wherever possible.
As well as the beautiful daily artisan breads such as focaccia with fresh rosemary and confit garlic, and ancient-style slow fermented basket sourdough, you'll find weekly specialty breads.(click here to see more)
Or try one of Crust Bakery’s delicious tartlets such as passionfruit curd topped with berries and meringue, raspberry and chocolate mousse, our signature creme brûlée or chai pumpkin & gingerbread tartlet (selection changes seasonally).
Sandwiches (and soups during the colder months) are prepared fresh daily, as are the quiches, individual artisan pizzas, butter-puff individual potpies and our much-loved pork and fennel sausage rolls.
But we think that Crust Bakery's true speciality is indeed our croissants and butter pastries, made from scratch every day, using real butter and slow-fermented dough, to create a crunchy, chewy delightful pastry! Our most popular pastry would have to be our signature Raspberry, Lycheee and Rosewater Pastry!
