Our Story

Founded in 1887, Willie’s was British Columbia’s first bakery. Still operating at the original location, we have gained a reputation for our plentiful all day breakfasts and lunches. We make all our meals with local and organic ingredients including freshly squeezed OJ (yes the real thing!) and organic fair trade coffee.

Chatelaine Magazine

“Willie’s Bakery has been responsible for the delicious smell of bread wafting over the harbour since 1887. But the real attraction is its breakfast: brioche French toast, home-baked cornbread, maple farmer’s sausage and local free-run eggs served in a sunny courtyard, with rose bushes, a fountain and an outdoor fireplace.”

“From the antique wooden floors, old-style counters and interior brickwork, to the historic photos and early morning smell of fresh baked goods, visitors need not stretch their imagination to picture original baker Louis Wille pulling hot loaves out of a brick oven.”
