The best place for a soup and a sandwich in Chemainus. Great sourdough bread and the best baguettes this side of France.

My wife and I needed a short break from the Mural walking tour and wanted to try Nanaimo bars, and Utopia Bakery was the perfect spot. Small, nondescript bakery. The coffee and nanamio bars (regular and peanut butter)hit the spot.

Oh my! Pastries and bread and coffee! Oh my! If you want an extra-special coffee break, you will find it at Utopia Euroean bakery! We had the hazelnut meringue pastries and apple strudel. Both were fantastic!

I haven't actually eaten here but I go all the time to buy their gluten free - vegan bread. Best I've had.

Just happened to stop by for a coffee (many types available) and we couldn't resist their pastries/sandwich counter. The food was fresh and delicious. Well worth our stop at this cafe.

not reminiscent of a european bakery. Some of the dessert pastries like apple strudle and a few marzipan offerings. Have tried several items here; our household was never impressed with it.

My husband & I stopped in for a coffee & treat! Oh so many to choose from & everything looked delicious. We both had something different & were so pleased with how good it was. Bought a loaf of grain bread! Delish!

They make a very good assortment of breads which I love, and have a bread card as well so after so many - you get a free loaf. Lots of good bakery items as well as a good selection of lunch items.
