We stopped in on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Had the Eggs Benny and Classic breakfast. Large portions and food was hot. Display cases have lots of to go options that look tasty. The plastic knife and fork - very very flimsy - was our...only disappointment. Americano coffee and Assam tea were enjoyable. Friendly staff wearing masks and tables spaced for COVID.More

We spotted this place our first afternoon and went back for breakfast the next day, eggs benny were cooked well for me, my wife's were a little over cooked, taste was good, portions were large, everything was served with disposable plates and cutlery, little plastic...knife made cutting the toasted muffin difficult, good value for moneyMore

I would describe this as a student-style coffee shop. Unpretentious, inexpensive and nice selection (e.g., gluten-free, vegan, etc.) and friendly. Not stylish, but that makes it kind of endearing in a town like Victoria.

Very nice younger staff who were kind enough to call me a taxi. Coffee was good, and that was basically the only reason we stopped.

Stayed in downtown Victoria for three nights and ended up having breakfast here on all three mornings. We found the staff very friendly and the food and coffee were great with lots of choice.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we hit the QV Bakery and Cafe on our way back from dinner for a little dessert. The desserts in the case all looked really good, but we had a slice of the banana creme and the peanut butter creme...pies. Both fillings were really gelatinous and lacked flavor. The peanut butter pie in particular tasted more like raw cookie dough than peanut butter. Crusts were acceptable and the creme topping was pretty good, but the fillings were disappointing. If we were to go there again, I would just avoid the creme pies.More

Not your average cafe. There is a very wide range of food from savouries right through to cakes so should be something for most people. The cafe opens early in the morning and therefore good for an early breakfast. There is seating both inside and...outside. Order at the counter.More

With it opening at 6.30am all week called in for an early breakfast. Good selection for vegetarians and found the staff friendly, providing good service. Breakfast was excellent too. It's like an old American diner in layout and has a great selection of music on...the jukebox - as background music only. Would recommend and besides early opening its open until late at night too!More
