Serious Coffee: Caffeinated in Victoria

Diana Chan August 1, 2014 Cafe, Canadian, Three Beakers, Victoria


Serious Coffee is a local coffee chain on Victoria Island. Serious Coffee opened in 1994 in Duncan, BC and has now grown to 25 locations on the island. 20 years has passed since they first opened, but they are still as serious about good coffee since day 1.

I was in the Mayfair location needing to grab a quick coffee before work. Unfortunately for me, everyone else decided to grab a coffee at the same time, so there was a long lineup. The line moved quickly though.



The interior is cozy, but slightly dated. It definitely does have a nice charm to this place. It’s like home.


Small Cappuccino ($3.39) was good! No complaints here. Delicious beans were used and it was nice and strong.


Steak and Egg Breakfast Wrap came with a side of salsa. The wrap was grilled in a panini press and had nice grill marks.


The wrap held together quite nicely and it tasted alright. Nothing revolutionary, but it was a good solid breakfast wrap. You can’t go wrong with this.


Overall, a good alternative coffee shop if you love supporting local businesses.
