This is a breakfast restaurant and reservation are required. Otherwise you wait outside for about an hour to get a seat. The food is fresh wholesome and just plain great. The staff are outstanding, funny and most accommodating. We were there is December 2014 and you definitely do not want to stand outside if it is raining. Make reservations.

This restaurant has been popular for awhile now and for good reason. The food is fabulous, never disappointing and the atmosphere is fun with great art on the walls. Brunch is my favourite and the tandoori chicken dishes are always one of my favourites. Get there early so you won't be disappointed.

This is our go to place for breakfast in Victoria! We have become regulars to the "iconic restaurant", & our Saturday breakfast is well known to the staff (no menu required)! Yes, the waits to get in are just a little shorter now that the tourists are in smaller numbers. Sometimes we will go for the Sunday and I will... More

After a short wait we were seated at a table for two. Who thought there would be a line up but it does take reservations and given the wait it is a popular place. The wait was well worth it. The service was terrific and the food was great. The people who work there do it as a team and... More

On day 1 of our excursion to Victoria my GF and I happened to find the Blue Fox Café which had good reviews. We got in a line, which seems typical in Victoria and were lucky enough to be escorted in before many others because they had an available table for 2. The breakfast was awesome. My GF had the...

Make a reservation or expect to wait, but the lineup moves fast, and it's worth the wait. Amazing the difference in food when comparing to the Whitespot just down the street. For basically the same price you go from barely average to awesome! My 11 year old boy probably would have preferred Whitespot, but he suffered through his apples, whip... More

I am still adapting to the portion sizes of North American food... head to the Blue Fox as hungry as possible and you will be glad you did! We had a delicious breakfast, there are good vegetarian options and friendly staff. Though it was around 11am the waitress persuaded us to have holiday special bloody marys, and why not? Delicious!... More

Worth the wait if you have to stand in line. The food is outstanding in all respects and the service very pleasant without pretentiousness. The servings are extremely generous so bring an appetite or something to carry your doggie bag.
