Blue Fox Cafe is one of the best places to get breakfast to make your morning hungry belly very happy. I've been working in the hotel and service industry here in Victoria for over 8 years. Blue Fox Cafe is definitely amongst my top 3...places for breakfast recommendations.More

Went for breakfast to this cute cafe on Fort. Food was good, not the best eggs bennie but still tasty. If you don't have a cell phone, you have to go outside to look at the extensive menu. Music not really suited to breakfast and...a bit intrusive.More

We were visiting our son over Christmas and he mentioned Blue Fox Cafe. The reviews were awesome, and when we drove by there wasn't a line up and a table for 3 was becoming available. (a line up formed after). Had their chili mocca which...was spicy but also rich, this was real cocoa chips in their mocca.. Not powder. I had the Margareta omelet... Holy cow, bring your appetite. The meal was huge (its 12 hrs later and I'm still full) and so incredibly tasty! Son had their apple French toast which also was heaped with goodies! Their homemade jams just made you want to forget about the massive hash browns and eat more of that. Prices were more then fair for the size of food you received. The interior was bright and clean and I didn't feel like I was in a prison visitation window area, the partitions were still having an open feeling. We will be back!More

What an amazing breakfast. We were there the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and fortunately we were able to get a seat right away. The entire time we were there, there was a continuous line up of customers. The lineup did move fairly quickly though. They ask...that you do not linger over breakfast and to keep your time to 1 hour. It is a really cute little café and all the staff are very friendly. We felt well attended to during our meal. I had the Portobello benny. OMG. It is probably one of the best bennies that I’ve had. It had the Portobello mushroom, spinach and tomato, and nicely poached eggs on a bagel. It had just the right amount of hollandaise sauce. So many restaurants put too much hollandaise on their bennies and it detracts from the taste of the other ingredients. It came with delicious chunky potatoes. My husband had the flying Spanish omelette. He enjoyed his omelette as well but he said that next time he would order something different. He raved about his caramel macadamia nut latte however and said that he would return just for that. This was one of the best breakfasts that I had during our staycation. I’ll have to try some of the other bennies.More

We have eaten here three times now and each experience was great. The food is totally unique and very delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant. Be prepared to stand in line to get in because it is small and popular with the locals.

I had the O’hana Banana french toast which really was something special! Absolutely superb! My husband on the other hand ordered the Island Eggs which was just an ordinary diner-style breakfast. We decided this place is probably more worth the wait if you want to...try something a bit different off the menu (we arrived about 1145am and waited around 30 mins to get in). If you just want an ordinary breakfast you could probably get a similar meal faster elsewhere. Cool quirky cafe with a great menu though and I will be dreaming about my french toast for weeks to come!More

Delicious oatmeal, coffee, and wonderful service. Had to wait for a while, but they even came out with umbrellas! Tables well spaced and service super efficient and friendly! Breakfast was delicious! Thank you!

Good selection of breakfast items with very large portions. Quality food. Try ordering half order or you won't be able to eat for the rest of the day. Restaurant has spread out its tables and most staff are wearing masks, but one or two staff...are not. As a senior, this is an important aspect of any restaurant these days. Masks are there to protect the clients, not the staff.More

My husband had a beautiful omelette and I had a BLAT, both came with potatoes and they were delicious! The servings were large and the reasonable. The line seemed long but they’re efficient and I’d wait in it again!

Great to visit again on a recent trip to Victoria, as delicious as we remembered. Even with the COVID 19 lineup, it went quickly, and service was prompt and friendly. Menu was great, accommodating a variety of dietary preferences in our group. Will definitely be...back the next time we are in town :-)!More

I don’t think they are open Christmas Day. The Empress Hotel and Oak Bay Beach Hotel are open on that day for sure. You would need to contact them and reserve in either case.
