If you're in the area, this is a good place to have a cup of coffee. It met our expectations. What more can I say?

Really great coffee! Some of the best in Victoria, I would say. But their service is rather slow and they're usually quite busy. If you want to quickly get in and out, it might not be the best stop.

It is a good place to stop while about town working, shopping or meandering. The coffee is fresh. This is a favourite spot after a movie and a treat too.

Very good coffee. Nice shop but service was rather slow. It's definitley a laid back place. There are plenty of seats including a few just outside the front door.

What a quaint and chic atmosphere. It was lovely to stop in, grab coffee to go and enjoy some friendly conversation while there. We really enjoyed stopping here while in Victoria!

Habit is one of my favourite places to enjoy a Latte while sitting and people watching. The coffee is consistent, staff are friendly and quick, atmosphere is bright and inviting. Great place to meet for a quick meeting followed by a quick stroll through the Atrium Building lobby.

This café is a good place to just hang out and have a java, read magazines or just people watch. I love their lattes and cookies.

This is a nice and large coffee place with big windows to the outside world. The service is fast and the product is great. One word of advice, this place has some strong espresso, if you're one those people easily effected by caffeine, maybe go with the one or two shot options instead of a full 4 shots, unless you...

The baristas talk about the various coffees like others talk about the nuances of wine. If you love excellent coffee, maybe even call yourself a coffee snob, I think this is your shop.

A great coffee place with good snacks with a very casual atmosphere, casual seating, no rushing. Friendly staff and GREAT COFFEE, a place where all ages mingle without the feeling being rushed so that you feel yo have to leave immediately... love it.
