Our family of 4 had breakfast hear (after a 45 minute wait) during our vacation. The food was great, but some was better than others. My Eggs Benedict was just okay, but our son's pancakes were probably the best I had ever had. Thank goodness the portions were huge because our whole family shared my sons pancakes. YUM!

Stood in a queue for 40 minutes or so (lunchtime), glad we persevered though. When we left (around 2pm) there was no queue, so maybe avoid lunchtime. Comprehensive menu, plenty of choice. Food arrived quite quickly - considering they were so busy. Service was excellent, friendly without being too friendly! A quirky place with a good ambience.

The Blue Fox is on Fort Street a number of blocks out of the downtown core. We walked by on our way to Craigdarroch Castle and say people standing in line well before lunch. We later stopped by for afternoon snack and coffee. Excellent locally sourced and prepared food with generous portions, very reasonable prices and extremely friendly staff. Just... More

This is one of THE places in Victoria for breakfast. They serve breakfast all day. Several other TA reviews said there was a considerable wait time (outside) to get into the restaurant. Our thoughts, and we confirmed our theory with another TA reviewer who is a local Victorian, were that we show up around 10AM-ish after the early breakfast crowd... More

Yes, we had a 30+ minute wait, but it was worth it. Staff is very attentive to food allergy needs. Nine of us dined there and everyone LOVED their meal. Fun coffee drink specials, great food flavors and pairings. The super busy atmosphere didn't faze the staff, and we were not rushed either.

Eating at Blue Fox Cafe is the culinary equivalent of really good sex. You just have to think of the wait in line as foreplay.

This is a great spot for breakfast. We found a line at the door when we arrived on a Friday morning, but the tables turned over pretty quickly, and we didn't wait too long. The service was fast, friendly, and very attentive. It's a cozy little place; they've maximized the number of tables, but it doesn't seem crowded--just cozy. The... More

Plain & Simple, I love the Blue Fox Cafe! The breakfast here is sooooo good! I have traveled many places and I cannot decide between Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis or the Blue Fox Cafe in Victoria as my favorite in the world. They are both amazing! They have changed the name of it, but I had the Mexican Omelette which... More

Went there for breakfast and decided we had to try their lunch too. Great food and great service. My sister-in-law has food allergies and Blue Fox is by far the easiest place to find something she can enjoy. These people are knowledgeable and they will spend a considerable amount of time with you figuring out a dish that will not... More
