    John's Place: The best in town

    by pieter_jan_v Written Oct 10, 2012

    I know I read about this place before I went to Victoria; it somehow attracted me although it was listed at rank #22 in our Victoria restaurant list.

    I must say, I was not disappointed at all. Having a perfect stew in a tropical fruit was a piece of cooking art and great to eat.

    Furthermore this place displays so much history at its walls, it's like dining in a museum.

    It's a bit longer walk in downtown Victoria, but sure worth the effort!

    Business Hours:
    Mo-Fr: 7AM - 9PM

    Love this place. It's always crowded though.

    Favorite Dish: Beef Burger. But almost anything seems to taste good. They have everything from Thai Curry to Fish' n Chips. Even tasty vegan burgers. We come here often. A good standby.

    Whenever I head over to Victoria, I've always got to have at least one meal here at John's Place. The food is just like momma makes, good sized portions, and freshly baked bread with real butter. Desert is also fantastic! You can purchase a loaf of bread to take back to your home and/or hotel.

    Favorite Dish: ALL OF THE ABOVE

    I was told that John's is the best place to go for breakfast, and I have to admit, it was pretty darn good. Lots of menu options for breakfasts including build your own omlettes and the most extensive eggs benny menu I've ever seen. Very casual environment.

    Make a reservation!

    Favorite Dish: Well known for its Eggs Benedict
