don't pass on this one!

Stopped for a quick lunch on a cool breezy day. We had a bowl of potato-leech soup and it was delicious. Served with a slice of toasted oaten bread, this is a meal in a bowl.It was steamy hot and the coffee cup never ran dry. Our server was pleasant and courteous as well as efficient.

This small cafe does breakfast and lunch up right. I had the bacon burger and potatoe leak soup. Both home made and very good. Trust me I make both if these and Avalon's are comparable. Also the breakfast hash is very good with their home made hot sauce for some extra zing. Great value too. I will go again for... More

We stumbled on the Avalon after another spot was closed and we were glad we did. This small 28 seat place has a family run feel and our breakfasts were perfect! (try the eggs bennedict) The lunch menu also looks great.

I've been coming here for years and it's been great since day one. I First stumbled here because the Blue Fox up the street had its usual 85-minute lineup going and I was hungry. I haven't looked back and try to eat here a couple times a month at least. Even on a Saturday or Sunday morning it's rare you... More

We wanted to go to Blue Fox but they were closed and the sign said Avalon is open on the next block. Not quite the same atmosphere and the coffee not as good but the meal were very good and the service great. A nice quiet change and no line up.

We were going to dine at the Blue Fox but the line was out the door - had to be an hour wait so we kept walking until we found this Gem. No lines, Good Food, my wife says GREAT eggs Benedict. Homemade bread and jam was great. When there is so much to see and do in Victoria this... More

In a city where brunch is a big deal, the most important detail the Avalon can advertise is that they don't have a line-up. There is nothing special about this place at all, absolutely nothing stands out other than the fact that you don't have to wait for a table on the weekend. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't...

Great food and prompt service. Their wholesome meals are of excellent value and a surprise as it is a such a hidden gem! Should improve their coffee quality to get five stars.

Based on the reviews, we thought we would try something other than the Blue Fox. Big mistake...should have gone to Blue Fox. Can't even begin to compare the food.

My wife and I arrived in Victoria from the Victoria Clipper famished. Our B&B was in the Rockland area so we walked down Fort and were drawn into the small restaurant by the unique menu for the day. We ended up having home made chicken/vegetable/noodle sou with bread, cheese quesadillas, and a chicken caesar salad. All yummy, had made on... More
