John’s Place: Breakfast Place in Victoria

Diana Chan December 22, 2014 Brunch, Cafe, Kid Friendly, Three Beakers, Victoria


John’s Place has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner for the past 30 years in Victoria, BC. They make all their dishes from scratch. They were also featured on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here.

They are best known for the fair prices and huge portions. I was here for a work trip with a few coworkers and someone suggested we should have breakfast here. It’s located right in the heart of downtown Victoria.



They have tons of pictures covering all their walls, so you will have tons to look at. There are posters, pictures and celebrity messages on the walls.


There’s a good amount of seats for small group and larger groups.


Caffe Mocha ($4.25) comes in a big mug and there is a lot of foam.


Hot Jasmine Tea ($1.95) came in a teapot and the servers do come by and refill the pot with hot water with no additional charge.


The Blackstone Benny (1/2 order – $9.95) is topped with grilled tomatoes, bacon, soft poached egg and hollandaise sauce. I had it served with a side of fruit. The regular ordered seemed pretty big for breakfast.

The butter hollandaise is quite rich and you can really taste the butter.


The 222 Headache ($10.95) with a belgian waffle, scrambled eggs, 2 chorizo patties. We also ordered a side of their cream cheese sauce, which is amazing on everything.

Overall, it’s a cool place to go to if love breakfast. We came here around 8:30am on a Saturday, so we didn’t run into any lineups.
