I knew ahead of time that it was a small place, but we were fortunate that another couple moved over to let us have a table for four. It was not an inconvenience to order and pay at the front counter, but beware, there are a lot of tasty options to choose from so one might want to peruse the... More

The food and drink items at this cafe are fairly pricey on the same level as a higher up casual restaurant, but it is good food and polite customer service. Stick to your budget or you will need to win a big lottery prize in order to eat here every day. Once in a while out with friends is ok.

One of those classic 'Hole in the Wall' places that serves a great breakfast. Try the Heuvos Ranchero, delicious!! Self-service with a smile...loved this place! Great food, great people...highly recommend it for a lazy Sunday afternoon breakfast :). Small, not a lot of seating but with outdoor service and have a Ceasar with your breakfast!

This is hands down the best place to eat breakfast in Esquimalt, It is hard to say what is the best... I love to food they prepare, the potatoes are grilled, NOT deep fried, the sausages are the best. I only wish they opened sooner (I Start work early)

I had the Eggs Benny with fresh vegetables, mushrooms, avocado...was very good and served with homemade hashbrowns and fried tomatoes. My husband had the bacon and eggs with all the fixings, he said it was very tasty! Had great coffee as well.

Who doesn't love the option of breakfast all day long. It was busy, but our food came quickly and the service was helpful and kind. The building is a bit hidden, but it is well worth the search to find it. I enjoyed the daily special and would have it again if I am able to go back. Wonderful, quick,... More

This place is kind of hidden on Esquimalt Road. If you are not looking for it, you might miss it. It is a downstairs (just a few steps) restaurant right next to the Bike shop and across from the fire hall and police station. The food has always been great, they have several different options, and it has always been... More

When we were told about this Cafe we had a bit of a time finding it. It is located on Esquimalt Rd, the main street and appears a bit below street level. There is an outside eating area as well as inside. They make their own soups and are very unique with their menu. We had a breakfast that was... More
