Looking for a coffee house early on a Saturday morning. Found this little place close to my hotel. The coffee was delicious and the staff were friendly and very helpful when I asked for recommendations on some various restaurants. They were playing some very nice music and the decor was warm and inviting. Just what a coffee house should look... More

I stopped in for an hour and a half one more to do some work between meetings and the played Beirut and Kate Bush's The Dreaming on Vinyl. I couldn't believe my luck. Great atmosphere, really good service, and fine coffee too.

Delightful local coffee shop two blocks from our hotel (Royal Scot). We seemed to be the only out-of-towners there. The coffee was great, staff friendly and helpful, and the blueberry scones were delicious.

Our favourite place for Coffee in Victoria, no matter what location you visit. The best coffee you will have in the city. They also carry Yonni's doughuts and we tried the maple apple fritter and the sour cream glazed donuts. Tasted homemade and were very fresh.

My daughter and I recently had coffee at Discovery Coffee in Victoria, BC. This is the best coffee I have ever tasted and would recommend it to coffee lovers. We also loved the peach cornmeal muffin. Can't wait to visit again.

A pleasant find away from the rush of the harbout. Had an excellent omelette with side of toast and a very fresh mix salad with a nice light dressing. Just the right amount of food to start the day. They do not weigh the plate down with the omnipresent sides of potatoes and double toasts that tend to be the... More

We came upon this Discovery Coffee (on Menzies Street in James Bay) and I had the bright idea to have breakfast here. What a mistake. We ordered their special breakfast of the day which included two pancakes. The waitress left quickly before we had noticed the absence of any butter or syrup for the pancakes. I went to the counter... More

This warm friendly quaint cafe was a wonderful reprieve from busy downtown Victoria. Upon walking into the cafe you are greeted with the sounds of the 60's and 70'scoming from the vinyl records stacked on a table. The staff are very friendly and wonderfully unique. The coffee, roasted at their store on Discovery street, is individually brewed so each cup... More
