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

This is a very small place but the owners are very friendly and concerned with your satisfaction. Pretty standard breakfast fare but nicely done.

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.

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!

We stopped here real quickly to grab two bubble teas to go. Both flavors were great and the lady who helped us was really nice. They didn't take credit cards but thankfully, we had cash (either American or Canadian is fine).

Stopped in for lunch... omelette, chicken salad sandwich and a BLT were ordered. Solid portions great price. Soup of the day - cream of Mushroom. Delightful mom and pop operation. cool funky decor. Three people came in for Bubble tea to go. I got to try that stuff some day.
