I understand people standing in line to get in here as I've heard, but it wasn't... More

Went with a group for dinner, and both food and service was very good. They have a wonderful menu, and their prices are reasonable for food and beverages. Portions were ample, and I came away with some of my Tortellini.

I've been going to John's Place since it first opened. Some of the staff have been there since day one too. Now that's a good thing. Everything they make is wonderful. Fresh bread (makes my mouth water just thinking of it), Eggs Bennys to die for, juicy burgers, Begian Waffles with cream cheese syrup.... Now I want to go there... More

I ordered the full order of Eggs Benny & should have ordered the half. Great taste with eggs done perfectly and the pan fries were also very good. My husband had the multigrain French Toast with Maple Syrup & it was excellent. The service was very friendly & attentive without 'hovering'. We'll go back for sure.

This place was recommended to me by a friend and, indeed, it was a great experience. I chose the full English breakfast and I was amazed by the quality of the food. I can't get a breakfast like that in London, folks. The staff was very friendly and customer oriented, passing out free samples of their other delicious breakfast choices.... More

Upon entering at lunchtime, one couldn't help but notice the magnificent pies on display. The staff was immediately welcoming although we were a group of nine women (60's and 70's). Further, they were completely unruffled when we proceeded to order entree's that we split and shared in various ways. The meatloaf was fabulous. Before we departed Victoria, we chose to... More

There are many very good restaurant's in Victoria and you wont be disappointed at Johns Place. Food good, service good and a reasonable price. Hot drinks could of been a tad warmer but otherwise a great start to the day.
