Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: We are a passionate farm! We create and share locally grown food and wines situated in the heart of North Saanich's pastoral landscape, the focus is on local food and wine, and sustainability. More than just a bakery/cafe, The Roost sits on 10 acres of farmland where we grow many items used to produce the food we proudly serve. The wheat grown and milled on-site is used to bake breads fresh daily. The blueberries, sheep, and a unique vineyard, all add to the authentic experience. You'll love coming out to our place! Whether you sit on the porch, get comfy in the secret garden, relax on our "chicken-bus", or laze at a picnic bench looking out over the farm and vineyard, you are sure to enjoy a passionate farm experience!

Good fresh local food and lovely patio area in the summer. They often have soft unobtrusive music too. We shall return this summer.

A local favorite for sure. Excellent food, lots of choices, healthy or sweet treats. Staff are friendly and the farm setting with chickens wandering around is fun. And, if you want to eat indoors, you can sit in the bus!! Very cute.

Love this bakery. Terrific pastries and delicious coffee. I love the chocolate chip walnut cookies and also the chocolate almod croissant. Some items do sell out so best to come reasonably early.

Have only been once and will not return, the food was not very good. I Had the Ploughmans Platter whcih had lumps of burnt homemade bread, and my friend had the portobello mushroom over rice and it was very bland and under seasoned on a pile of bland white rice, The service was excellent and so was the location, but did not make up for the food.

This bustling little spot doesn't have room to spare or much of a view in my opinion, but makes up with a solid line of baked goods. Had a sit down meal of a tuna sandwich which was generously proportioned with fish and served between two beautiful slices of thick cheese bread. Mushroom soup was fine, but was most delighted by the almond Kringle. *Very* sweet, but nicely formed with layers of almond paste, raisins and slivered nuts. Great for sharing. Service was good - I asked to be pointed towards the extra cutlery to divide the Kringle and the waitress happily went and brought it over instead despite being in the midst of mid-day rush. The eat-in experience is fine, but for me the real draw is some fresh baked sweet and savouries.
