Not only is the décor funky but also the service is welcoming and kind. The brunch meals are exceptionally good at John’s Place, with cream cheese syrup and fresh blueberries to top off your favourite meals.

The Fish Store at Fisherman's Wharf

The Fish Store This place is a deviation from the usual brunch, but seafood-lovers can expect to fall in love with the smoked fish dishes. For the traditional brunch-goer, enjoy a breakfast burrito by the dock. A bonus to your meal: you can buy small fish to feed the seals by the harbour just a few feet away from the restaurant. This is a great spot to transition into lunch if you’ve missed the culturally appropriate “brunch time”.

Situated in downtown Victoria, brunch-goers can stop by for loose tea, pastries, and baked goods on a nice silver tray. Murchie’s is a great place to relax before or after shopping, walking around downtown or even to indulge in a quick sweet fix. Stop by Murchie’s – as they say, when in Victoria, do as the Victorians do!
