This is a lovely little cafe waiting to be discovered. Just off the busy tourist are of Douglas and Humbolt, with excellent espresso drinks )and we have high standards) and pleasant, friendly, helpful service. Will definitely be back on next visits to Victoria!

I enjoyed the coffee cake I had here; can't comment on anything else! The staff were pleasant and it looks like they have a variety of very reasonably priced sandwiches, which I plan to try some time.
