“All I can say is wow...”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I loved everything about Willie's. The decor, the staff, the ambiance, the food, the coffee!

I had the breakfast sandwich with sausage and enjoyed every bite. I would have bought a muffin too but the things were giant and I knew I wouldn't be able to finish one.

“Best Eggs Bennie Ever”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

My favourite meal of the day when i travel is breakfast. The bennie is my all time choice but the hollandaise sauce can make it a great meal or one destined for the trash. Willies eggs bennies are amazing and the hollandaise the best i have ever tasted in all my years of travel. I had the Latin bennie with the chipotle hollandaise. My wife had the traditional bennie. I loved the brioche base instead of the traditional and so boring English muffin. Great coffee, great ambiance and great staff. Thanks to the Empress Hotel for recommending this great little cafe.

“great breakfast spot”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Even though staffing didn't match the number of people eating there, the one waitress who had the heated, enclosed section did a fabulous job getting coffee and our order. All was delivered hot and in good time. Was so good that we went there both mornings while in Victoria.

“Great cafe!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Come by here everytime we are in Victoria! Cute space with lovely coffee and I enjoy their berry danishes... Perhaps too much. Great outdoor seating area outside too!

“Fantastic service”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The woman who served us was so good, we were totally surprised to find she doesn't own the place!

Nice atmosphere, went twice for breakfast, once for coffee.
