Had toasted paninis - very tasty - quick and friendly service. Coffee was good too. Open on Sunday afternoon which was a plus.

Funky, great food, coffee and artisan breads make Vic's well worth a visit. It is well patronized without feeling overcrowded .

Loved their egg benedict, lots of other choices. Also go for their afghan cookie. Ordered flat white and latte - coffee left a bitter aftertaste, not that great in my opinion.

Busy and bustling. Food and coffee was ok and I was glad that they had glutenfree options. But as we discovered later we may actually have been overcharged by quite a bit. Being our first breakfast in a new place, on a busy Saturday morning,...More
