“Great breakfast place before the Butterfly House/Butchart Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We had breakfast here before visiting Victoria's Butterfly House and Butchart Gardens. The four of us all agreed that it was very good - friendly staff, very reasonable prices, and the food was outstanding – everything was local; farm fresh eggs, locally made Farmer’s sausage, locally raised potatoes. Fresh local blueberries and homemade whipped crème topped the pancakes. Our only experience was breakfast, but we were certainly impressed.

“Nice restuarant and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

At the end of a visit to the Butchart gardens we stopped here on leaving. The meals were very reasonable with a good choice of food with friendly service from staff.

Hello; Please let me say that i'm so sorry that we let you down when you came in on Friday. We just changed fish suppliers and thought that our inconsistency problems were behind us,naive of me I guess. We sell a lot of fish and chips and sometimes it goes wrong as it did with you. Again, I'm sorry. And then your mom's food was not enjoyable either. Please give us another chance. There is a 50.00 gift voucher under the till drawer for you. The truth is we're not perfect, but we do try and we will keep trying. Thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback. It is the only way we have to really have to know how we are doing.

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We were told about this restaurant from a local as a place they always go when they are in the area. We weren't sure exactly where it was located but knew it was close to the Butchart Gardens. So, when we left the Gardens and talking about where to eat, we saw the restaurant and pulled in to give it a try.

The service was quick, friendly and helpful recommending items on the menu. The food was very good, and if you go and want Ice Tea, make sure you tell them sweet or un-sweet, or you may get sweet by default.

While having our lunch, looking out the window, we could see two bald eagles flying around. Even though the actual view from the window did not have a lot of scenery, this was a great sight to see.

This is a very good family oriented restaurant and I would go again when in the area.

“Perfect for families with young kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We're a little biased because this is about the ONLY place we go to eat anymore as we've got two young kids and as most people with kids know: Going out to eat is just not the relaxing experience it was before kids!

For other local parents on the peninsula, know that this place is perfect for families. They've got a giant box of random toys the second you walk in that kids can choose from, and the kids get colouring sheets and crayons right away.

Perfect for kids, friendly staff, HUGE burgers and decent prices. Hits all the points for me!
