If you looking for atmosphere and ambiance, look elsewhere. If looking for delicious food at great prices, stop in at this little quirky gem; but, don't expect to order dinner as they close by mid afternoon, so it's breakfast and lunch only. I had the split pea soup and I don't know what seasoning they use, but it was fantastic.... More

Small place that serves the generic breakfast fare at a reasonable price. Food is good, service friendly and fast. Omelettes are great! They do not accept credit cards, only debit or cash. Easy spot for breakfast if you are staying nearby. Would recommend.

I asked an old gentleman coming out how it was, and he said he had been eating breakfast there for 20 years. So that's the kind of place it is; I imagine it has... More

Ate here based on a recommendation, and got a nice breakfast of eggs and sausage with coffee. The food is good, served hot and quickly. They aren't open for dinner (just breakfast and lunch), and it might have 6-8 small table. It is right on the edge of Chinatown, so if you're walking around and aren't in the mood for... More

We were visiting victoria bc. My wife and I always like beeakfast in Canada. Especially locally owned and operated. This was my favorite place so far. The owners were really friendly. Food was just like we asked for. The environment inside was cute, clean and had history. The out side from the street made my question it but it was... More

We really like this place for breakfast. The menu is easy to understand and not overwhelming. Omelettes are huge and can easily be shared, coffee is pretty good and the service is very accommodating. Great prices too!
