One of the best ways that I warm up on cold day is sitting in one of Greater Victoria’s local coffee shops. They are all unique in their own way but certainly, all have mastered the art of make a great cup of coffee. Check out the Top 4 local Coffee shops below:
An outstanding little coffee shop with a great selection of beans and an excellent team of baristas. There is knowledgeable staff, cool interior design, and everything thoughtfully curated to highlight the flavours and aromas of coffee. The seasonal drinks feature delicious hand made ingredients suited to the weather and the local palate with house made cashew milk. On top of the java drinks served there is an assortment of yummy pastries.
A cool Victoria coffee shop tucked into a narrow space in Chinatown is very funky and always bustling. They have a variety of Organic coffees and offer soy and almond milks. The staff are unbelievably friendly, service is a quick, and the coffee is always perfect. It’s a great place to hang out, people watch, read, or meet friends. Been Around the World also offers various delectable baked good, panini’s and amazing soups.
Located in beautiful Oak Bay it’s a cute cozy coffee shop with great choice of coffees which are always changing. The owners and baristas are all very friendly and skilled. With very modern decor it’s a hidden gem with a wonderful atmosphere and beautiful artwork. They also offer super tasty baked goods and a very popular feature is; Waffle Sunday. Saturday night they post their menu on Instagram sharing what will be the next morning’s feature waffle.
A bustling small Victoria coffee shop located in the heart of Gordon Head with talented baristas serving up excellent quality coffee, cappuccino, matcha and lattes full of flavour. They take their time to make every drink perfect. This place is full of great music, amazing food and friendly staff and welcoming neighbourhood appeal. There is limited seating but during the nicer weather there is nice seating outside with views of Mt Doug. Some highlights other than the java’s would be the sausage rolls and baked goods.
