Want something out of the ordinary for lunch? Foodies can look forward to a few new culinary experiences in Sooke.

DFH comes to Sooke. Realtors Oliver Katz and Melinda Brake have moved from Royal LePage to DFH Real Estate and have a new office at the corner of West Coast and Sheilds Roads. The office is a satellite of DFH Westshore.

Sooke Harbour House has been named a finalist in the Condé Nast Johansen’s 2011 Awards for Excellence in the categories of Most Excellent Small Hotel and Most Excellent Eco Resort.

Centre Mall, where Village Food Markets is located, is sporting new bright and colourful banners on the light standards.

Eagle Eye Outfitters, a fixture for many years on Anna Marie Road, is relocating to the former Harbour Crafts space next to the Canada Post Office.
