If you’ve been scouring the city for the flakiest (in a good way) croissant, you’ll find it at Spiral Café. The café’s specialty are their stuffed croissants, which come with spinach and feta, cheese, or sun-dried tomato and feta. The croissants go great with a bowl of the homemade soup of the day, which can be added on for a complete meal for about $5. Bagels and cream cheese or Brie are also popular choices to pair with soup. The café also offers a delectable selection of baked goods brought in from Victoria’s finest bakeries, and serves only the highest quality organic coffees.
Funky, colourful atmosphere
It’s no wonder Spiral Café is always packed - it’s a cool and comfortable place to hang out and meet likeminded people. Visitors can cozy up on the vintage red couch and chairs from grandma’s living room, or sit at funky wood tables. Spiral attracts an eclectic mix of artists and musicians, and community members who appreciate their talents. The walls are covered with an impressive collection of local art, including photographs, paintings and collages, which are available for purchase from the café.
Live music and community events
No café atmosphere is complete without music, and Spiral serves up some of the best vibes in the city. The café often has live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and invites visitors in with no cover charge. The café welcomes a number of regular folk, roots and rock artists, as well as touring acts from all over the country. The Victoria Swing Orchestra is also known to make regular appearances. In addition to live music, Spiral also hosts Sunday morning story time for kids, a poet’s support group and open mike nights.
