Sherwood Cafe

Bidgood & Co. Interiors as Interior Designer

Victoria is home to the highest number of restaurants per capita in Canada, second in North America only to San Francisco. But a key concept was missing for foodies and casual coffee drinkers; a day to night institution that could be counted on for quality espresso, friendly fare or a creative cocktail at any hour. Enter Sherwood.


Drawing inspiration from European all-day eateries, Sherwood is a youthful reinterpretation of a classic concept. An interplay between modern daily life and traditional neighbourhood institutions. Muted pistachio and contrasting hunter green cladding wrap all vertical surfaces, introducing elegance and warmth over the contemporary shell. Texture and acoustics are addressed through dynamic material exploration with bespoke CNC panelling in playful half-round shapes. The arch shape forms a motif repeated in decorative mouldings and mirror, as well as classic bentwood furnishings inspired by classic Art Deco brasseries. Plants, brass rails and bentwood chairs layer additional classic, refined elements to the interior.


It’s the unique offering of modern world meets tradition that makes Sherwood a welcomed addition to a growing city known for its charm. The unpretentious, social atmosphere fosters familiarity and encourages customers to feel right at home at any time of day or night.
