The drive through rural countryside is great. Make a beeline to the cafe for breakfast (it can be busy quite early) then spend hours exploring regional parks and great, but relatively small beaches. The large breakfasts (extensive menu too) will give you the fuel to keep you going. The atmosphere is authentic with old farm implements from the area as... More

A little out of the way from the downtown Victoria in the Westshore Community is a well frequented family restaurant with a seemingly endless menu. We have lived near by for 10 years and My-Chosen Café has always been a quick go to for a casual but delicious meal. We have never had a bad meal there.

My husband and I recently moved to Victoria and came across this neat place last year. Food is great but the Cheese Cakes are to die for!!! Skor is my fav. Not for the faint of heart as huge serving lathered in cream and caramel sauce. Even with salad as main meal I had a hard time eating it all.... More

The calamari and the zucchini sticks, were perhaps not the best choice. Everyone else's food looked so much better. Our snacks were laden with oil and some of the calamari was burnt. I think the fryer oil needed changing. But we were hungry and thirsty and the beer washed down all the food after a hot day hike. A shout... More

Great service from Hannah. Great menu selection, food quality and ambiance. Local business. 20 min drive from downtown and enough to explore out here. Everything made in house and BC ingrediants, most if not all, local. Take a drive into the country, check out the petting zoo and gift shop, with fresh baked goods. A must do.

5 of us met her for lunch a few days ago and I must say the food and service were both excellent. Large portions and resonable prices. It is a bit on the loud side, but everything else makes up for it.

We have tried this restaurant twice and have been disappointed both times. On both visits it was very crowded which is usually a sign of a great restaurant but it is one of the few restaurants in the Metchosin area so that also could be the explanation. The service was very poor on both occasions and in fact, on the... More

Family brought us to this wonderful this restaurant. There is usually line ups to get in but there is a great little petting zoo in the back for kids to pass the time while you wait. Plus they will call you right from the petting zoo. They screwed up on our order but made up for it with extra fries... More

This was my first time here and I loved it. The staff was friendly and the place is just cool to see. Lots of folk art and stuff. The food was awesome, service was fast. No disappointments at all. Two weeks later I sent my girlfriends there for lunch and they where impressed also. I will be going again.
