First time here, and fell in love right away! Great breakfast sandwich, almond croissant, coffee and service so I decided to come back for lunch later on, only to find they close the kitchen at 2. Very understandable and I will certainly be back!

Good coffee, good food, cool atmosphere! I've been coming back regularly for years! From pastries to salats, all tastes very good!

I've been going here for years and used to have meetings at night when they used to turn in to a Wine Bar which I don't think they do anymore...never had a bad food experience here ! Everything is excellent and some things are the...Best I've had anywhere but the most important thing is can they make a cuppa Joe ? I have medium drip regular everywhere I go. Tim Hortons is horrible in my opinion and Starbucks isn't much better ! In Victoria the four best coffees to go are in no particular order Shatterbox, Bows and Arrows, Fernwood Coffee, Discovery Coffee, 2%Jazz, Union Pacific and Habit...if you want to sit down and eat, meet a new friend or woo your lover...Union is the Only place to go ! Get there before the lineups start... bonus is there's a fantastic new brewery to try a block away !More

I’ve never even heard of this place until someone suggested it. The coffee was really good and the atmosphere was chill. Lots of people drinking coffee and studying

A little out of the way place were you won't be over run with tourists. Very popular with the locals. Good tasting coffee and a nice selection of coffee shop pastries. Limited seating outside and cosy seating inside. I always make a piont of going...here if I'm in the area.More

We were headed to Jam Cafe locates diagonally across the street but after 1 look at the long line outside, I knew at once my husband and children would never wait and I am so happy we didn’t! We turned around and headed to Union...Pacfic Coffee, which we had all liked at once when we passed it the first time for the tempting aromas of coffee and food, as well as, the open air counter seating and exposed brick of the building. The gentleman working the counter made our day with his upbeat, friendly and chatty nature. I took his advice on the cold brew maple latte (which was delicious and not overly sweet as he promised) along with the sausage egger sandwich. I got mine on croissant; my husband opted for it on a bagel. Our kids enjoyed plain bagel and croissant along with a side of bacon and a local root beer. We sat outside on the back patio. It was a beautiful day and a lovely surprise start to our morning. Excellent spot to grab a coffee to go or stop for breakfast or lunch and a short walk from all of the top attractions in Victoria.More

I could not say enough about this coffee house, walking in you get a sense of home with the rustic atmosphere and dim lighting. The staff our some of the friendliest iv seen in a cafe that is busy and they do not rush anyone...when trying to make your decisions. They seem to always make their drinks correct and the espresso smooth and aromatic and that is something a coffee lover looks for. They do have a back patio area that is hidden with lovely flowers and seating and again creates this homey feeling. I recommend stopping by and having yourself a cup of Joe.More
