Several weeks ago, I went on a short getaway to Victoria, BC with my family.
Here’s a sneak peek into my 5 day stay – and a list of things for you to check out while there!
The Fairmont Empress Hotel
Beautifully decorated rooms with an old world charm let you wake up to breathtaking harbour views, right in the heart of beautiful Downtown Victoria!
- Empress Room @ The Fairmont Empress Hotel
The Dungeness Crab Benedict & hashbrowns were absolutely delicious! Try choosing your own omelette too, the ingredients are top-notch in quality & very fresh!
- Bon Macaron
A wide variety of macaron flavors here.. My favourites were the bacon, the cream cheese , & the salted caramel ones!
- Azuma Sushi (busy place with a good selection of bento boxes)
- Irish Times Pub (loved the Fish & Chips there!)
- Noodle Cart
Thai street food style restaurant with beautiful & intricate decor. The food was mediocre in taste, but the decor is a must-see!
- The Regional Assembly Of Text (for those who love paper, old school letter writing & handmade stuff)
- Oscar & Libby’s (quirky & interesting gifts & toys)
- Munro’s Books
Gorgeous historical building with a large selection of books! Get intoxicated by the musty but interesting book smell there!
- Dolce Vita Coffee Art
Try this cafe’s unique tea drink, the “Zunomere“! It’s refreshing & slightly minty in taste!
- Habit Coffee
This is definitely the “it” spot for Victoria’s hipster sipsters! 😛 The latte tasted amazing too.
- Mirage Coffee
And last but not least, for my fellow Bikram yogis out there.. be sure to take a hot class at Bikram Yoga Saanich!
What do you think are the must-see/do places in Victoria? Do drop me a comment to let me know! 🙂
