If you are having a rough day, week or semester, I know what will perk you up. Desserts delivered to your door. I did not stutter. This is not a drill. These are some of the best desserts you can get in Victoria that will support your journey to becoming a lazy dessert connoisseur. Here are my top five:
1122 Blanshard Street
If you have never had freshly baked cookies DELIVERED to your door, I can tell you as a frequent cookie eater that you are missing out. Not only will they deliver cookies to you, but you can get combos that include organic milk, coffee or Phillips Soda. If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to never leave your house, I’ve found it for you.
#6 1701 Douglas Street – inside the Victoria Public Market
Not only can you order these pies for delivery, but you can also subscribe to a monthly pie club. They will deliver a new pie to your home every month, packed with freebies or delicious experiments as a little surprise. You can even add a paired ice cream if you like.
1011 Broad Street
So I cheated a little here. You can order through DineIn Victoria to get access to the desserts from Pagliaccis. Pagliacci’s is famous for their traditional italian food with a twist, live music, and amazing portions which is just what you need when you’re having a night in. My personal favourite is the carrot cake, it’s probably the best slab of cake I’ve had since being in Victoria.
Market Square in Downtown Victoria
Another small cheat is using skipthedishes.com to get access to Famoso’s desserts, such as Nutella Pizza. Yes, Nutella pizza. Not only does Famoso have some of Victoria’s favourite pizza, but they also have dessert options such as Dolce and Banana, which is oven roasted bananas, pecans, caramel sauce and vanilla gelato, and of course the Nutella pizza, which is exactly as amazing as it sounds.
736 View Street
The minimum delivery item is a dozen donuts, but let’s be honest: it’s not that hard to order a dozen donuts. There is nothing better than being woken up on a Saturday morning by your donut delivery. They frequently sell out, so orders need to be placed the day before. If you’re ordering donuts though, you might as well plan the whole day around it.
