John’s Place (Victoria, BC) #yyj

It’s clear to me that Victoria knows where to get breakfast: John’s Place. It’s really rare that I get to eat brunch while I visit Victoria, because usually either (a) I am too busy running around like a headless chicken or (b) I don’t get to stay long enough to enjoy breakfast or brunch. Luckily, recently I got the chance to enjoy brunch with my friends Katharine and Paul Holmes. They suggested John’s Place.

They were right.

I would strongly recommend John’s Place to anyone who is seeking authentic brunch in Victoria. The only problem I saw is that it’s too popular! The menu is great and I loved their food (even if I really didn’t order much, as I already had had brunch at the Empress).

I haven’t eaten breakfast at John’s Place, but the dinner I had there (while on a golf trip this past spring) was fantastic. We also got there at a good time, because the place filled up fast near dinner time.

Personally for me, whenever we need breakfast we hit up The Shine Cafe ( on Fort Street.

Raul, next time you’re in Victoria. Drop by my friend’s Penelope’s Cafe on Pandora Street. Also try out the Greek restaurant next door :)

Takes me back to University. This was always a favourite brunch spot of ours after a night on the town.
