Bubby's Kitchen does great comfort food that is slightly updated but still very satisfying. They have a nice selection of Benedicts, omelettes, and breakfast plates. They also have very good coffee drinks and a great selection of baked goods. My Benedict had a Mexican flavour profile: 2 poached eggs on top of a bean & cheese quesadilla with salsa and... More

We went to Bubby's late on a friday evening and had drinks and finger foods (appetizers) I found it a bit pricey but the fare was superb! I use a power wheelchair, and was able to get around the restaurant fairly well, But....The washrooms were down a hallway to the kitchen, which was clogged with furniture and was clearly the...

I am advised that there are new owners , started about a month ago.The place needs a little re do...the space is ok, but the menu is just too large for a small neighborhood cafe. justice cannot be done to so many items on the menu. restaurants with more history, more space, more resources have much smaller menus....here they should...

Very impressed with the choice of brunch items. The food was really tasty (and filling)! The restaurant was jam-packed and lively. The service was friendly but a little slow... to be expected since it was so busy. But the cozy atmosphere and decent coffee made all the difference while waiting for the food to arrive. Can't wait to go back... More

Nestled in the Cook Street Village area sits Bubby's Kitchen. We went with another couple who recommended it and we're not disappointed. Decor is lively and modern. They don't have a huge wine list but still a good selection. We like Chardonnay and thoroughly enjoyed the Burrowing Owl and it was a fair mark up. Hubby had the flank steak... More

My partner and I came here for lunch/brunch recently and all I can say is, wow! What a find!!! A treat for Victoria!!! Seriously, the food is that good. I ordered "Bubby's hotdog" and my partner ordered the "blackstone bennie." Both were exceptional! The hot dog was very good -- high quality and fresh. Much can be said for the... More

Went for lunch. Place was busy as usual so was invited to wait outside and have a coffee, which we did. Thank goodness for patio heaters. After waiting for about 20 minutes and noticing people leaving, went inside and found that hostess thought we left. Didn't notice anyone checking for us. After ordering we were served soup on the house,... More

We were visiting Victoria for the month of February and we discovered Cook Street Village and Bubby's Kitchen. The Village was about a 10 minute walk from our condo and you can get pretty well everything you need on Cook Street. We stopped in at Bubby's for dinner as were were passing by and we liked it so much we... More

In the past, Bubby's has served great food. The last time I was there we waited 45 minutes for our food. The food was cold and it seemed that the french fries were fried in rancid oil. I won't be going back there again.
