Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

I had the 222 and my boyfriend had the eggs Benny. Both were delicious and the service was awesome. Great atmosphere, fun music, hilarious server. Would definitely recommend.

“Yes you really do gotta eat here!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Arrived and were told wait would be about thirty minutes. Turned out waiting was a wise decision. What a unique breakfast spot. The coffee was great, and when our breakfast arrived wow! Lots of original breakfast ideas surrounded by walls full of history and memories from owner John. Servers were friendly and attentive. Don't miss a stop at Johns Place on your trip to Victoria and make sure you're hungry.

“a Victoria staple”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

While attending UVIC, this was the GO TO for greasy post-nights-out breaky. I think i usually got the benny. Big portions. Great caesars. Always a line up which shows how favored this little classic is.

“Great service and good value”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We got to John's place around 9:00 am and the place was still hopping. We were seated very quickly and the waitress brought us coffee right away- a sign of a truly great breakfast place. There were lots of choices and our meals arrived quickly and everything was done just right. A great place to start your day.
