Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Tre Fantastico offers a beautiful space, great small bites and a selection of local beers & wine. Coffee is a very prominent feature (all roasted at another location a few blocks away) this ties into the "Tre" concept of focusing on three drinks.Situated right across the street from the historic St Ann's Academy in the newly developed Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa, this location is a stones throw from the heart of downtown Victoria and Beacon Hill Park.

“Friendly, tasty, informal dining”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We like places that serve tasty, fresh, healthy food for reasonable prices in a comfortable atmosphere. (Who doesn't?) Tre Fantastico makes our short list in Victoria. Their menu has a nice, compact range of snack, salad, sandwich, and pasta choices and the daily specials are creative. A good choice of wines and beers. Friendly staff and casual, comfortable seating.
We came back for a second dinner two days after the first and will be back next time we're in town.

“Superior Coffee, Eats, and Service just away from the crowds.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed at the Parkside Victoria in 2012, and we became fans of Café Tre Fantasico located just off the hotel lobby. Great coffees, teas, and even some brews from Swans compliment offering for Breakfast, lunch, supper, or something in between. There is indoor and outdoor seating areas. Sitting outside enjoying a Latte overlooking St. Ann's Academy, perhaps a horse drawn carriage passes by or you just enjoy people watching in this calm retreat. Even though I did not stay at the Parkside Victoria this year, I made several visits o Café Tre Fantastico. I like early morning walks in close by Beacon Hill Park, and this was the perfect stop for a Latte and light Breakfast. Café features daily specials too. Come enjoy!

“Changed my mind”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We loved this place, came here all the time n ordered their breakfast sandwiches, coffees, lattes. But one fine day I decided to have a nice salad (i dont usually order these). At first it looked n tasted yummy until I saw a little grey bug slithering across the plate...ewwwwww!!!! I wanted to create a scene but I called the waitress and she apologized. She gave me the whole spiel about we take care but sometimes blah blah blah...and refunded my money but now I am scarred for life...from salads...and fantastico! Yukk!!

Thanks so much for joining us at Tre Fantastico for our food and beverages and taking the time to write a review.
On our menu you will notice that this salad is listed as a local greens salad. This salad is organic. We are very proud to support our local farms that do not use pesticides. The salad greens are washed once at the farm and then again in our own kitchen by our chef. There has never been a report of anything else being on the greens with yours being the exception. I am very sorry this occurred but do not regret using local pesticide free produce supporting local farms. Our kitchen is now aware of this occurrence and will be extra aware at each and every washing.
I am proud of how our front of house team handled the situation and that you were given a full refund which is making the most of customer service recovery.
I hope that you can forgive us this one time and continue to enjoy our coffees and food which we put so much effort in sourcing and serving.
Sincerely,
Kristy Taylor

“Locals be warned - secret's out”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Brilliant coffee and so fresh breakfast rolls were had on a brilliant sunny morning. Blink and you will miss this little cafe tucked into the Park side Hotel and spa just out of the inner harbour precinct.

It was obvious that the clientele here includes many locals. Not a lot of seating but many of the locals were doing takeaway coffee - which we were told was some of the best in Victoria. We agreed - our Latte's were excellent.

Breakfast cost less than $20.00 for 2 - great value and top quality - highly recommended.
