For all those lazy, hazy, crazy holidays in the capital city, breakfast is the meal of choice for late-night revelers and late-morning loungers alike. Lucky for all, downtown Victoria offers several top-drawer eateries for your favourite meal of the day. Enjoy eggs made every way imaginable, French toast dipped in scrumptious secret ingredients, taters fried to golden perfection, and waffles with tantalizing toppings—mounds of fresh fruit dribbled with heavenly syrups and homemade jams.
Each of the top five breakfast eateries below serves amazing, mouthwatering breakfasts. No, the menu alone might not help you choose which place to try; instead, the key to your choice might lie in the décor, the history, the vibe, or the approach to cooking. Here’s an overview to help you choose the best spot at which to start your day:
Shine Café, 1320 Blanshard Street (downtown location); 1548 Fort Street (Oak Bay Junction location)
