Breakfast Spot

“Our absolute favourite brunch place, Jam has taken comfort food to a whole new level of comfort. They have updated the classics like pancakes (which taste like actual cake), fried chicken with fluffy French toast and other fantastic choices. Expect to wait for a bit, but once you’re in, brace yourself for ultimate deliciousness. ”

Coffee Shop

“Located inside the Atrium Building, it’s the place where all the cool kids come to hang out. Get a cup of some of the best coffee in Victoria and listen to whatever is on the record player. and enjoy their array of plants. Their huge windows also make it an excellent spot for watching people or soaking up the sun.”

“Best Americano if you like a rich and robust coffee. Located on Fisgard St. in the heart of Chinatown, this place is a local fav that buzzes all morning long. It's a long, narrow venue so be prepared to kindly dodge a few hot beverages on your way to the line up. They roast beans onsite; offer delicious locally baked goodies and savory lunch options. My fav is a triple shot Americano, black. Fav treat is the quinoa chocolate muffin. Grab your coffee and wander the block to enter Fan Tan Alley. This tiny alley is a landmark must see. Filled with an assortment of quirky & cool shops, including a Dr. Marten shoe; Ice Cream & more.”

Eggs Bennies are delicious & interesting. The Cashew ‘cheese’ spread - fabulous! You’ll want to order 2. They also have delicious lunch/dinner menu. The setting is a Victorian Character house converted to a restaurant. It’s Lovely! Located in James Bay ”

“Tea at the Empress for "one-million dollars" OR why not try the spot that makes and sells the "Empress blend" tea. Seriously, there is a whole amazing history about John Murchie who was the first purveyor of tea in BC in 1894....this is the real deal. And its such a neat spot right downtown, with a quaint tea room out back and all the teas in the shop right next door. Highly recommend.”

“Our choice for a delish coffee and baked treat. They make amazing sausage rolls in house amongst other things. My go to is the bacon n' egger with an Africano (Americano misto). These guys also own the new-ish breakfast spot, Jam across the street.”
