Excellent

We waited an average of 45 minutes. The food was fresh, waitresses were very friendly and the atmosphere fairly good. We have enjoyed eating there and will definitely come back.

Show up before you have an appetite because this popular place is always packed. Definitely with the wait though. Had a spicy chorizo with hollandaise sauce and had my girlfriend scraping my plate for more.

About a 12-15 minute walk from the downtown core. Stood in line for about 15 minutes but it was definitely worth the wait! The cafe itself is quite small but packs a whole lot of character into it, from the exceptional services to the delicious food and local art displayed on the walls. Try the Eggs from Hell!

We heard this had excellent breakfast. It did not disappoint. We are glad we made a reservation because there were many who waited. Coffee was great. Eggs Benedict was delicious!! Quaint atmosphere, great service, reasonable prices.

I lived in Victoria for 2 years and was a regular at the Blue Fox. "Back in my day", prices were lower, and portions were larger, but when I went back for breakfast last week after 5 years, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the food quality hadn't changed a bit. I had the Huevos Rancheros with pan fries,... More

This place has won numerous awards, and each of them well deserved. Simply getting into this place is a bit of an experience. It's busy, busy, busy, which is always a good sign. The food and drink are worth the wait.

When you plan to eat at Blue Fox Café, prepare to wait in line. Whenever we go there we know the line-up outside the door is inevitable. That said, the wait is worth it! The food is outstanding... and great value for the price. No wonder there are always people queuing to get in!

Long wait, we were told the wait would be 15 minutes, it took 45 minutes before we got a table. The food is not good, below average. I was sitting by the kitchen and watched my food sit on the counter for a least 10 minutes before they served it. The restaurant is chaotic. Will never go back.

Great food and nice portions! Very small restaurant though with limited seating so get there early to get a table. Staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable with the menu.

There are no other words to describe the food here, but AMAZING! The line is long but it is worth ever minute of waiting to get inside to taste their food! Cozy, but well worth rubbing elbows with the table next to you!
