Blue Fox is the place that I stumbled upon 20’ish years ago and haven’t stopped talking about. Any time someone tells me that they are going to Victoria I insist that they make a point of eating there. It is a very small restaurant and...always has a lineup outside which says it all…it’s worth the wait! Let the “food’gasms” begin!More

We couldn’t find a place that had a short lineup, after walking around for like 30 minutes checking breakfast places, and decided to wait here. Were we ever glad we did. The wait was over an hour. However the service and food was fantastic. The...restaurant can’t be blamed for the staffing and amount of people out to eat. The waitress warned us that the pancakes were huge and we should order one plate to share between our kids. The kids said they were hungry so we ordered two. Don’t repeat our mistake. We have an 11 and 9 year old. Order one order and split it. My wife had the eggs Pico, and I had the Huevos Rancheros with beef and chorizo. The portions were big and there was too many breakfast potatoes with it to eat. Great Food and Service. I would recommend this place and plan on a doggy bag when leaving.More

Wow. There was a queue going outside the door the whole time we were eating. A great menu and lots of choice. The portions are huge but very yummy. We really enjoyed our breakfast here and the staff were very friendly.

Tried the Eggs Pacifico Benny. It came with a cold fresh green salad. The eggs were done perfectly sitting on top a good sized portion of salmon and the hollandaise had a good flavor. Tables were spaced apart and service was good.

Great local café with a menu with a twist. I recommend downloading the menu while in the queue outside as they have no hard copies inside. If you are from overseas like we were with no data, I suggest taking a photo of the menu...on the door! Food is served promptly and it feels very Covid safe. Highly recommended.More

Loved our visit to the Blue Fox! A cozy environment with lots of character and a great menu. Food was excellent, service was good, and coffee was great! Don’t be surprised if there’s a lineup - but well worth the wait.

Do not waste your time. It is a tiny!TINY elbow locking restaurant with no proper seating, yes they have tables and chairs but you can literally reach out and eat from the persons plate next to you. No proper distancing, on any given day the...wait is 45mins to 2 hrs if your lucky and you must pay for parking before you to the restaurant chances are you will waste your money on parking cause you can go in anyway. Staff is very slow. Food is subpar. Honestly there are better places and faster. If the owner wanted better they would do better by expanding properly. It’s like bunch of sardines squished into a can. Sorry this is a very honest review.More

Stood in line 45 minutes to get in but well worth the wait. Partner had the Morrocan club house and i had the huevos rancheros with pork chorizo. So delicious and plentiful. No wonder the line up was long. 😊

We had breakfast here this morning and I'll note the highlights and low-lights below. After an almost an hour wait standing in line outside we were seated. They don't hand out menus and tell to get the one at their website on your phone. I...had the Fox's grill and my wife had the Pancakes with a side of bacon. The Fox;s grill is a large dish with 3 eggs, 3 bacon, 2 sausages, fried potatoes and two toast. I ordered the eggs over medium and they were served pretty much over medium and the requested hot sauce was a spicy green sauce. The bacon was under cooked and greasy. I ate one of the sauces and one bite of the potatoes and left the second sausage and the potatoes since they were cold. The lightly buttered toast with home made strawberry jelly was the best part of the meal. The pancakes were cake like and my wife enjoyed them. Her bacon was also under cooked and greasy. They were clearly short staffed and it affected the service and maybe the kitchen as well. At $53 with tip out the door this breakfast was a very poor value.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.
