Glo Restaurant & Lounge

Eat Glo Restaurant & Lounge Victoria BC

Casual, yet sophisticated dishes, an appealing appetizer menu, and a killer cocktail list served indoors in Glo’s sophisticated, modern dining room, or outdoors on their scenic patio looking over the Gorge Waterway. Great for business lunches, date nights, or hanging out with friends late into the evening. A few minutes north of downtown but well worth the trip. Highly recommended.

Wheelies Motorcycle Cafe

Wheelies Motorcycle Cafe Victoria BC

Wheelies is one of a kind – a custom motorcycle shop with an in house café serving surprisingly good food and drink at reasonable prices. The café menu is small & meticulously crafted: five sandwiches, three sides, and one dessert, and the drink menu similarly small but sophisticated. Wheelies also features live local punk, and rock’n’roll shows on weekends plus brunch to cure your hangover on Sunday mornings. Located in an industrial part of town Wheelies proves that sometimes, in order to find the good stuff, you need to venture off the beaten path.

Ferris’ Grill & Garden Patio

Ferris' Grill and Garden Patio Victoria BC

Ferris’s has many menu items revered by locals as classics. Comfort food like chicken penne soup, classic burgers and fries, and poutine sit alongside more sophisticated fare such as oysters, seafood pastas, reasonably priced cocktails, and locally crafted beers. With a charming patio in the back for al fresco summer dining and a cozy brick interior for the rainy season, it’s always a good time of year to head to Ferris’. And considering the quality and quantity of food provided, even a cheap chicken like Pete has to agree that Ferris’s downstairs is a bargain.

La Taquisa

Eat La Taquisa Victoria BC Mexican Restaurant

High quality authentic Mexican food available from two “cafeteria-style” service locations. Fast, fresh, delicious and very cheap considering the quality of food. A “Pete’s Pick” for pleasing our palates and our pocketbooks.

Duffin’s Donuts

Duffin's Donuts Vancouver BC

Some of the most eclectic 24-hour menu selections in Vancouver. Mexican torta sandwiches, Fritou fried chicken, hamburgers, all-day breakfast, Chinese food, and Vietnamese noodle soup just to name a few (with a clientele as varied as the menu offerings). “Duck and cover” cold war décor with pre-fabricated furniture indestructible enough to survive nuclear Armageddon add to the charm. What more can we say except you might need some Rolaids after a visit to Duffin’s, but who cares when the food is as good and invigorating as these fine offerings.

Da Tandoor Indian Restaurant

Da Tandoor Victoria BC Indian Restaurant

One of Victoria’s oldest and best loved Indian restaurants and a great place to sample multiple dishes . Though some find the décor “tired” we think it’s charming and with a crispy samosa in one hand, warm nan bread in the other, and a steaming bowl of delectable curry in front of you…WHO CARES!

Leka Design

Leka Design Victoria BC

Walk in to Leka Clothing on a dreary winter day and your mood is bound to improve. This boutique is imbued with bright summery colours, providing the perfect backdrop for their cheerful house wares, unique toys and colourful, yet grown up, clothing lines.
