A favourite when in town, always a perfect cup, best roasting in the city. Always crowded with customers at all their location. Donuts and pastries tempting and good.

They roast their own coffee and it's delicious. Always buy a bag to take home.. A little slow on the coffee bar but all around a good experience.

Visited their newest location and was blown away by the look and feel of the place. Great coffee 😀 Felt like a little piece of San Fran north of the border.

Great coffee, classic rock vinyl on the turntable, excellent pastries, retro bathroom, friendly staff, and constant lineups at the till tell you that this is a popular place in Victoria. We visited James Bay location.

Nice atmosphere, with Singer machines adapted to be coffee tables, gives a wonderful touch to this nice café. The other magic touch, which I really appreciate being from the country of cappuccino, was that they ask you if you would rather get the "traditional" size. Feels like home again.

This lived up to all the expectations, I'd heard good things from my friends who are locals. I actually visited the store on Blanshard, not Discovery. Some people will refer to this place as a hipster hangout or what have you. I personally don't see the issue. The coffee was incredible and the ladies working in there were so friendly!... More

There are 4 locations of Discovery Coffee, we were at the Discovery St. Location, just off Douglas ... Would definitely seek out this & the other 3 when in Victoria again. Lovely, charming ambience & really great lattes - service was friendly & good as well
