Boom and Batten

Great views, great ambiance. Their open kitchen is a fun thing to see and their food is good! They also have a cafe that is very pretty and their pastries are really good. Definitely recommend going there for date night, friends night out or head to the cafe to do some work, study or just enjoy a cup of coffee.

House of Boateng

This restaurant in Langford is delicious, unique and casual. Their food is made with the freshest ingredients. Innovative and creative. Beautifully decorated and comfy. They have vegan and vegetarian options!

Perverted Ice Cream

A fun and dark shop. Very instagrammable space and photogenic ice cream. A cool concept, very different from everything we see in Victoria. You’ll have to go see it for yourself!

Poke Fresh

Build your own! Fresh, healthy and delicious. Love going for lunch to this locally owned restaurant in Cook St village. Service is really good and they are always looking for ways to improve: all their fish is ocean wise, their to-go containers are biodegradable and 90% of their ingredients are gluten free. Their poke bowls are amazing!
