Some friends and I stopped by after church for brunch. They were not terribly busy which is surprising, since they offer excellent service, delicious food and a nice atmosphere. I had the Victorian Toast, which was a more delicious version of french toast. The prices were also very reasonable. I would highly recommend the Victorian Corner.

Just found this place walking through town and it turned out to be great. We had the club sandwich and fries. Good food and a very clean and fast service.

Just happened upon this little gem while in the area. Usually we use TripAdvisor but we just sorta found this one. The service was great, the atmosphere was nice and we had window seats to enjoy the little square. We had three different sandwiches and each was excellent. If you want a good lunch with a relaxing atmosphere, this could... More

I went here for a dinner (sallad and a lobster pasta). Very good and friendly service but the food I had was not worth the price, the pasta was possibly prefab. The ambiance was very nice though and the place made you really feel at home.

My philly beef sandwich was wonderful. Very hot with super fresh multiple colored peppers grilled together. Came with salad and fries. Good sandwich. Recommend for lunch. The breakfast menu looked good as well.

We had a breakfast there one morning while doing our laundry just down the street. We liked the meal so much we returned a few days later for more. It is easy to find, good parking, lots of windows and the decor suggests its name - Victorian. Food was plentiful and well prepared. We would have had dinner there but... More

On the main street in Pacific Grove, based in an old Victorian building, this small café/restaurant offers a good range of sandwiches, salads and other dishes. Portions are sizeable and the food wholesome; quality and prices are reasonable.

We've had lunches here a number of times over the years and the place always seems to be a bit better each time we return. The menu is appealing and the food is excellent . . . fresh and artfully served. Good coffee, great service and a well lit and casual setting top it all off.

My wife and I eat (mostly breakfasts) at the Victorian Corner in Pacific Grove often. We feel it is the best in Pacific Grove. My favorite is salmon eggs Benedict. The salmon used is caught by owner Paul Aliotti during his annual fishing (from his own boat) in Alaskan waters. The service is fast, efficient and friendly. We are on... More
