First Look at Deer & Dough

A new micro-bakery just opened its doors to the Fairfield community, with cakes, pies, and sandwiches they are ready to welcome the neighbourhood! Tucked behind a patio, and nestled between Martha’s Delectables and Tout de Sweet production kitchens is the small but mighty Deer and Dough Bakery. Formerly occupied by The Cottage Bakery, Deer and Dough have stepped in as the go-to neighbourhood cafe.

New Haus on the block

There’s a new haus on the block! Eva Schnitzelhaus opened its doors in the heart of downtown Victoria, taking over the Rain Dogs location on Fisgard Street. This open space has been transformed into an après ski chalet-style restaurant by a skilled team who all have roots in the award-winning Agrius Restaurant. Executive chef and CEO Maxime Durand, along with sous chef Émile Hudon-Donne, created a playful menu with their own twists on German, Swiss, and Austrian classics.
