Good value and quality, considering it's in the bar of the attached hostel. Friendly, quick service and a good cheap meal. What else could you ask for.

Ocean Island is a traveller's hostel in downtown Victoria. The cafe/lounge is busy every night. Lots of travellers and locals. Beer by the pitcher is cheap. There is often local live music, from fiddle tunes to electric rock and roll, usually no cover charge. Always...More

This cozy little cafe/lounge provides a great atmosphere to meet fellow travelers from all over the world. If you're on a budget, this is the place in town to have a savory meal and have a local brew...you can't beat a veggie burger and beer...More
