Food Scene
This is a great breakfast spot with two locations near by! I would say this one has the better atmosphere of the two. Full breakfast, Scottish breakfast, pancakes, fantastic benny's... there is something for everyone.

My personal favourite breakfast spot! Everything tastes super fresh, I love their hash and the accompaniments, mole, hot sauce etc. They also have really amazing, unique Mimosas. Great atmosphere! ...Also, much like the other Victoria favourite breakfast places, this can be lined out the door.

One of the best breakfast spots! The only problem is that it can sometimes be lined out the door! The Moroccan benny was one of my favourites!

The top rated restaurant on TripAdvisor for quite awhile, this little greek restaurant is a family run buisness that uses their mom's recipes (you can actually buy their hummus and tzatsiki at the "Market on Yates" or "Thrifty's" and I'm obsessed!). They'll even let you smash plates :)

One of my favourite bakeries. It's covered in beautiful graffiti murals that change often and specializes in artisan baking. They grind their own flours and produce their own sifted spelt flour. All of their ingredients are Canadian grown, either locally – using sustainable farming methods or certified organic. I LOVE their vegan chocolate cake. It is probably the best cake I have ever had.

Relish is across the street from a shelter and not the prettiest of locations, but the food/coffee is amazing and definitely a lot of love/thought goes into it. It's quite a popular place, despite it's location, which I think says a lot. The only thing I would mention is that I do think they shut early around 2-3pm.

I would say this is the easiest place for me to recommend as everyone ALWAYS loves it. It's an exceptional Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere that is always busy. I recommend making reservations. Great for special nights, dates, whenever really. This place caters to everyone.

This is one of my favourite restaurants! If you love vegan, organic, raw food or even if you don't, this place is amazing! Everything is delicious! I highly recommend their cheese cake! It's dairy free made with cashews and in my opinion better than any "cheese" cake I've ever had. A labour of love. They also own "Bliss cafe" on Pandora st., which is not surprisingly also great.

This place has been one of the highest rated places in Victoria for a long time. I'd say they are most probably best known for their steak. You can't make reservations, but if you don't mind possibly waiting, it's worth the visit.

So also friendly for people who can't do dairy... if you can do dairy however and they do have it, I HIGHLY recommend getting "Jacob's Shaft" ice cream.
