Living in Victoria has its perks. We have beautiful seascapes, great local artisans, farms looking for goat cuddlers (seriously)… We also have an ABUNDANCE of coffee shops. Like, damn good coffee shops.
A few days ago, I let you guys in on my struggle to keep motivated to do the hobbies I love most. One of the hurdles I have to jump (which I didn’t touch on in the last post) was trying to explore Victoria without a car. Yes, the bus system here is great, but it just adds a layer of difficulty that isn’t present with the ease of having a car. Having said that, I do come across rare instances where I have access to a vehicle for a few days so I always make the most of it. The last such time, I headed to Crust Bakery.

Today I want to share with you three of my absolute favourite places to hit up for Sunday brunch. Growing up, I wasn’t much of a breakfast person. But one thing I did look forward to was weekend breakfasts where my parents would fry up a feast of scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, golden toasted… toast (?), all accompanied with a nice cold glass of orange juice. Of course, once you get older and move out for University, weekend breakfasts become more of a greasy hangover breakfast from an iffy breakfast chain. Or wait, was that just me?!
Well, the old adage “with age comes wisdom” must be true because now that my uni days are behind me, I’ve come to appreciate a well-made breakfast using local ingredients (everything tastes better when using local food). Which is why the following three restaurants top my list for fav brunch: Continue reading
