Fern Cafe and Bakery
Fern is a local, vegan, cafe and bakery in downtown Victoria, British Columbia. Established in 2018, it is the only dedicated 100% vegan bakery cafe!
Offering a vast variety of specialty bakery items, a cafe menu, speciality coffee beverages, and fun lattes. Focusing on creativity, on the weekend Fern has a featured brunch item.
Fern is owner-operated by a couple that had a dream and wanted to share it with the world. With backgrounds in the restaurant industry and passion for real and good quality ingredients, they make all items in-house and from scratch. They have a drive for creativity, and the desire to share with locals and travellers just how great plant based food is, without any compromise to taste.
Owners, Tamara and Braden Parks, come from a small town in Ontario, but have been living on Vancouver Island since 2016. In their spare time, they enjoy spending quality time together with their son, exploring the island, and foraging for wild plants, berries, and mushrooms in the Fern covered forests - all of which they plan to incorporate into their menu items and baked goods from time to time.
In our bakery we shake things up and introduce fun new items often. Expect to be thrown back in time with some childhood classics, or be able to spot some of your old favourites you haven't had in years.
Our top recommendation? Try a Big Bad Cinnamon Bun otherwise known as our famous cinnamon buns! We even heard they're the best in town (vegan or not!)
Tidbit: We also often have doughnuts - fried!
Everything in the pastry display is first come - first serve. We currently don't specialize in custom orders.
In the Cafe we have a fun menu based on *vegan comfort food* consisting of house made burgers, hand cut fries, sandwiches, mac n cheese, etc.
We run our breakfast items all day.
The kitchen closes 15 minutes before close. Check our Instagram for daily updates!
