The Ruby on Johnson $$
642A Johnson St, Victoria - V8W 1M6
Cuisines: Breakfast Chicken Shop
Customer's reviews..
We were going on a trip to BC with our grandchildren. I had called a few months ahead because I noticed that one of the menu items featured on You Gotta Eat Here was not appearing on the menu. When I called I was informed that the item I was inquiring about was more of a seasonal item, mainly served in the fall and winter months as it is a "stick to your ribs" comfort food. I expressed my disappointment as I wanted to surprise my husband. The manager took my name and phone number as I explained that we would be visiting Victoria in August of 2021. She said she knew the chef and would get back to me closer to the date. While we were on the road I recieved a phone call, they told me that the chef had agreed to make the dish and asked what day we were planning to visit, I told her what day we would be there and that is when she let me know that John Catucci had just been in the restaurant a few days prior to that. I couldn't believe it, we always try to include restaurants on his show when we go on vacation to support lacal establishments. When we arrived the line up to the restaurant was quite long. We waited our turn, (approximately 1 hour, but well worth the wait), we were finally seated. I did not see the special on the menu and when our server came to take our order I explained that there was supposed to be the Mac & Cheese Benny available, and that we were travelling all the way from Alberta to taste it. She told us to wait a minute while she checked with her manager. When she came back she was accompanied by the manager and she told us how happy she was that we made it ( the fires that year in BC were horrible ), and that she was happy to have us there in the restaurant that day. The staff went over, above and beyond for us. We felt so welcomed and special. When we left we were so thankful and praised the service and the food. The staff even gave us a free coffe mug when we left. If you are travelling on Vancouver Island, please do not pass up this restaurant. Get there early, because they are so good, they are always very busy. We would definately go back if we are ever in the area again. A huge kudos goes out to all the staff , management and the Chef of course, this is why you deserve an awesome review. I'm sorry it took so long, we visited in August of 2021. Great job! You will not be dissapointed if you choose this establishment!
My husband & I were looking for a nice place to have Brunch in Victoria with our daughter and her fiance who was visiting Canada for the first time. Another restaurant she was told about had a very long lineup outside. So we googled and found this amazing place: "The Ruby on Johnson". We were seated quickly, and all our 4 brunch dishes were delicious. **Cudos to our server *Mara*. Very efficient and pleasant throughout our visit. We will definitely return. Stay safe staff! ❤️

Customer's reviews..
I had the Toscano panini, was good but overloaded with marinated artichokes which overpowered the other flavours, so 3 stars not 5 this visit
We happened to pass by this place and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is excellent. The outdoor seatings is so cute. Excellent short cake, nicely paired with their green tea

Fuego Old Town Eatery
1435 Store St, Victoria - V8W 3C6
Cuisines: Breakfast Mexican Latin American
Customer's reviews..
Nice little joint in a desire full of options. We went in for a quick snack and left satisfied. Chicken Quesadilla and Chips and Guacamole. Everything was fresh. Chips were warm. Menu is a bit small - that being said, they are good at what they do.
Very cute breakfast joint in Victoria. Staff is very polite. I had a chocolate milk and churro pancakes. The chocolate milk was very clearly white milk where they just added some chocolate syrup into it. The pancakes were alright. I wouldn`t get either of those dishes again. My friend had the conquistador and it was delicious. If I come back to Victoria and we go here again, I will be getting the conquistador!

The Village Restaurant $$
4517 W Saanich Rd #1, Victoria - V8Z 3G3
Cuisines: Breakfast
Customer's reviews..
I used to go to the one on Estevan and I used to adore the Italian Benny on a latke. Maybe it's this location, but it isn't hasn't been quite as good the last few times as it used to be. I think the pesto has lost its zip. I did have an absolutely delightful iced chai with a little biscotti on top - I'm very glad I took a chance on ordering a different beverage. That drink was super yummy. Service good at this location. Very expensive meal, though, at almost $30/person.
We had breakfast. Very good and pleasant service, the food was hot, all in all a very pleasant experience ?.

Cuisines: Breakfast
Customer's reviews..
It’s not as good as before after they change the menu.
Wonderful food and wonderful service from Yulia. Yulia took her time to visit with us and made sure we were taken well care of.We were all happy with our food, especially the eggs benedicts. The eggs were perfectly poached, with a runny yoke and very little white - which is how I prefer my eggs.If you would like nontraditional eggs Benedict, this is the place. They serve them on latkes (potato pancake, bagel, or over vegetables)We left fully and very happy

The Ruby on Douglas $$
3110 Douglas St, Victoria - V8Z 3K4
Cuisines: Breakfast Chicken Shop
Customer's reviews..
Best Waffles. Ever. Hands down.
US workmates go for breakfast on Fridays, last week we went on Thursday due to the holiday. Our second favorite place was closed so we went to Ruby's on Douglas. Last reviewer was right, you couldn't have gotten better smiles and the greeting! Wow place was packed but they fit us in right away. Receipt said it was Clara that served us, super friendly gal who works out. The prices where a bit more than we usually pay but food was outstanding. We only had water as we are not big coffee drinkers. Will definitely go back.
