We had breakfast here this morning. I had read a review that this restaurant was featured on a food show called, "you gotta eat here" or something like that. I had high expectations after learning this so I thought I would skip my favourite breakfast place when visiting Victoria (Blue Fox in case you are wondering about my favourite). I... More

This is the ultimate breakfast spot. The menu is great, with many different, delicious Bennie choices. The pancakes are made with something that makes them light and fluffy, like the old fashioned way not the fast food pancakes we are used to getting. I had the pecan pancakes, hubby had the polish Bennie, which definitely was a big hit. It... More

We loved the food- Beckett's Eggs Benedict and Yeti burger were very tasty. Service was very friendly and efficient. Loved the atmosphere.

I had the vegan burger, (I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian but LOVE Shines vegan burger. It was awesome. I look forward to returning, next time I'm in... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended the Shine Cafe for breakfast. It was a pleasant walk (6 blocks or so) from the Marriott. The menu is primarily egg related (don't go there if you crave french toast or pancakes) but quite extensive. They have at least 10 versions of eggs benedict and eggs in every other imaginable form. It was... More

The Shine restaurant is known mostly for it breakfasts....lots of Bennies which I found out are eggs benedict. We stopped by for lunch and it was extremely good and reasonably priced. The service was great. Better to go to the back larger area for ambience.

We were staying around the corner and looking for breakfast on Sunday morning. Good thing we got there before 10 as the wait line grew extensively as we were there. OK, half the menu is variations of Eggs Benny so I figured all was home made. This was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. I rodered the... More

Great service, gigantic portions, very tasty breakfast, would certainly recommend. There are many great breakfast restaurants in Victoria and this one does not disappoint. We would certainly go back again. The menu is not your regular breakfast menu but has many different varieties of breakfast food.

We were looking for a place to have breakfast after most restaurants had finished serving breakfast. and found the Shine Cafe. It was quite crowded and the tables are pretty close together. The food , however, quite good. I had the Metropolitan omelette which was a vegetarian omelette with cheese. It was very tasty and cooked perfectly. My wife had... More

We happened upon Shine Cafe sort of by accident. It was a block away from our hotel and when we walked by it looked like a great spot. We were hungry! Unfortunately, that was at 10pm so we returned the next morning at 7am for breakfast. I ordered Karin's Brunch, which lets you choose four items off of a list... More
