Thought it looked like a funky place, so tried it out. Coffee tastes great and they play vinyl. They could have a larger pastry selection ,but in all, a very friendly place.

I frequent the Discovery Coffee in Oak Bay, I enjoy the atmosphere and the friendly staff. The coffee is great and the doughnuts are fresh and creative. Give it a try!

Good cappuccino, lovely doughnuts, nice people. Very stylish washrooms. Not impressive on the outside, don't be fooled.

I stopped in at the Blanshard Street location this morning for an Americano on my way to work. I ordered, tipped 15% and sat down to leaf through the paper, and then walked back to get my coffee where a few others were waiting. Everyone took their orders and my Americano hadn't been made. I stood there for a full... More

As i walked towards the store there was this overwhelming smell of coffee beans being roasted- but not in the good way. It smelt like the instant coffee roastery I used to live near that would make the most disgusting instant coffee. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to have a good coffee. Not amazing 10/10- but good enough... More

James Bay on Menzies Street next to the Laundry Mat. Great little shop that plays old music from the 50's and 60's on actual records. Decor looks antique with wooden tables and cabinets. Coffee is tasteful along with fresh baking, I enjoyed a pumpkin muffin with my London Fog. Great service.

Small quiet cafe that has a following of loyal customers. Just wish they have better and fresher snacks to go with the excellent coffee.

We spent two days in Victoria for our anniversary. When I'm out of town I like to find a coffee shop locals hang out at. A receptionist at the Laurel Inn where we were staying recommended Discovery Coffee, a short walk from the hotel in a neighborhood. An awesome soy latte both mornings to start my day. My husband had... More

I found the coffee a bit bitter but it was fresh and hot, just not to my taste. I kind of find $3.75 a bit ridiculous especially when that is all they have to offer and this was Sunday at 2 pm so not even closing time. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. It is a good street view... More
