I went to this Cafe because of the good reviews. I ordered Country Fried Steak & Eggs, hoping for a tasty meal, to start my day. The food literally pilled on my plate like a excavator just dropped a load. I think someone doesn't like doing dishes. The steak wasn't steak, it was some battered thing with white meat under...

Two of us sat at the bar and enjoyed a great lunch. Amazing salads and soups. This is more than a restaurant, it's a destination.

Very good family food. Large size, actually took home enough for next day's lunch. Service was very adequate especially with my advanced age problems. Distance from Victoria makes visits more rare than I would like. Sound level was moderate. Wish there was a very similar place in Victoria.

Upon entering we found there was not heat on in the place, secondly we were seated by doors going to patio, which were extremely uncomfortable and the entire place was like living in a refrigerator. We were ready to leave but being Mr. Nice Girl and... More

We went to My Chisen Cafe before a play at the near-by prison. The menu was full of comfort food and reasonably priced. I had the lam burger which was cooked perfectly. The portions were large, so an appetizer and entree could easily make up a meal for two. The wine list is quite limited, so I had a margarita... More

The My-Chosen Café has always been a good day trip from Victoria. The food has always been plentiful and tasty. The downside has always been the wait. They do not take reservations, and they really should. Today we were told there would be a 45 minute wait to be seated. Since you're out in the country and there's no other... More
