12 Brunch Spots to Visit in Victoria

Our favourite part about weekends is brunch!

Brunch is part of Victoria’s culture, and we couldn’t be more proud to have several amazing, delicious, great quality and fun options for Brunch in the city.

Whether you live here or are visiting, you must enjoy at least one weekend brunch. We can’t name them all, but here are some of our favorite brunch spots in Victoria!

Jam Cafe

This is a fun, casual and hip spot to get breakfast or brunch. They have very creative breakfast plates and very big portions, plus craft beer and cocktails. I always recommend this place to friends and family visiting. I like their hip ambience and coziness. But, be ready to wait a while for a table! Jam cafe is very popular. Definitely worth the wait.

Blue Fox

Victoria’s first all day breakfast restaurant opened in 1991. This place is cute, cozy and very popular! Their portions are big and they offer a varied menu for different tastes.

The Ruby

Lots of creative options on the menu. The atmosphere is hip/casual and the food is very flavourful. Every dish is unique. Recommended for those who want something different than a “classic” brunch.

We love this place because they have lots of healthy options. They source their ingredients locally and organic when possible. They have food options for all tastes and diets, vegans included. Their service is amazing too!


We love the decoration and ambience of this place! It is located in a Victorian-type home in James Bay, which is a really pretty area. Everything is delicious, made with a healthy twist. Love visiting this place! You’ll want to come back for sure.



They recently opened after renovations and it has easily become one of my favorites. The food is incredible! Seriously, anything you order is surprisingly good, and the menu is very interesting. Their seafood benny is a must! Plus, the view is stunning.

Q at the Empress

Located in the iconic Empress Hotel, but with a modern feel. Elegant and classy, preparing their food with fresh regional ingredients and they do partnerships with local farmers and artisans. Their refined weekend brunch menu is original.

One of our favourite brunch spots in the city! Delicious and not too busy as other places. Their brunch is very good, great flavours, unique and delicious, with a great variety menu with options for every dietary restriction. Their atmosphere is very nice and cozy, a beautiful place with lots of plants. This is a restaurant we encourage you to experience for brunch too.
