About

Freyja - The croissant story

Locally owned Scandinavian style croissant bakery & coffee shop.


Freyja is aspiring to become an everyday location for the local community for coffee & outstanding viennoiserie pastry and a culinary destination for people visiting Vancouver Island. 

Our recipe is based on Danish traditions, following Scandinavian minimalism and perfectionism. Our butter croissants have 27 layers, all visible after baking. They have an incredible golden brown, flaky exterior and soft, fluffy interior we all love so much. They come in many shapes and with various fillings: chocolate based ganaches, seasonally changing fruits, salty creams and many more tasty versions of these.

Pain au chocolat

Made with the Guanaja dark chocolate (70% cacao) from Valrhona this classic pastry has a nice balance of buttery and bitter flavours.

Butter croissant

Our laminated dough is based on a Scandinavian recipe - hence the name Freyja. We use natural sourdough (containing only water and flour) and only ingredients that are available in most households. Preparing these croissants with 27 visible layers takes a 3 days process. All our croissants are hand made with loads of love and care.

Pistachio croissant

Double baked croissant. The filling is based on white chocolate and100% Sicilian pistachio paste, a lot of roasted pistachio and a little salt. We use roasted pistachio to decorate it.

Raspberry croissant

Incredibly rich in flavour. Filled with a raspberry ganache made out of pure raspberry purée and Valrhona’s Raspberry Inspiration chocolate. The Inspiration chocolates from Valrhona are made of cocoa butter and freeze dried fruits. Fresh raspberries give this croissant the final touch.

Filled with a mixture of cardamom, cinnamon and sugar. Pomegranate syrup and fresh pomegranate seeds give a sour touch the sweetness of the filling.

Vanilla croissant

Our signature vanilla croissant is filled with a vanilla cream for which we use Norohy vanilla from Madagscar. Norohy is proudly an ethical sourcing company and one of the most appreciated vanilla bean paste in the industry. We add a white-chocolate based chantilly to the top of the croissant.

Spinach and cream cheese roulé

Baby spinach, cream cheese and garlic make this savory item a favourite to everyone who seek for something not sweet. We add some pecorino cheese on top to complete the taste.

Prosciutto and cheese croissant

We roll our signature 27 layers with prosciutto cotto and gouda cheese and bake it until it gets flaky and crispy on the outside and tender inside. A sprinkle of black sesame seeds gives the final touch to it.

Salted caramel cruffin

Our croissant dough baked in a muffin mould and rolled in sugar at the end. We make our own salted caramel, fill the inside of this crispy goodie with it, then fill it up with whipped caramel ganache, same we use for decorating the top of it.

Strawberry croissant

Our strawberry croissant is based on Valrhona's Strawberry Inspiration chocolate. We add fresh strawberries to it to make the ganache it is filled with, and make it even more fruity with slices of strawberry inside and out. Feels like a bite of summer.

Caramel chocolate & blueberry jam

Caramelia chocolate from Valrhona is soft, rich and voluptuous with a rich milky flavor and compelling taste of salted butter caramel. We add our own blueberry jam to it that we prepare from fresh blueberries.
