Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We arrived at 9:30 am on a Sunday morning before the line was too long. The three of us enjoyed our food and the hearty portions. When we left, the line outside to obtain a table was much longer.

Any restaurant that is lined up out the door at 11am on a Thursday must be good! The Lavender London Fog is amazing, as was the Badger Benny with really tasty sausage and a light, lemony hollandaise. Too many pan fries to finish!

Love the cozy atmosphere and friendly service. Glad we got here early. There was a line about 15 minutes before they opened. The coffee was great and the portions are just right. The food was fresh and delicious.

If you want breakfast…GO HERE AND GO HUNGRY! We researched somewhere for breakfast following an overnight stay in Victoria…even the valet at our hotel told us this place was good, and we’d likely find a line-up to get in. Fortunately there was only one couple...waiting when we got there, so we were quickly seated. When we left, there was a one-up of people waiting ! A very extensive menu was given…I must’ve selected a dozen different things before I finally made a choice! Everything that came out of the kitchen looked superb as it went by, and our breakfasts were no different. Many very creative and delicious combinations, both sweet and savoury. Great “fancy” coffee choices. Friendly and timely service, and a superb breakfast…will definitely stop by next time we’re in Victoria.More

The food and the service at the Blue Fox Cafe is superb. Quick and efficient, you get what you order served up delicious. Each Benny or breakfast entree has enough food for two people, the portions are massive! The quality of the food is great,...my family could not help but remark on the colour and the flavour of the egg yolks. Put it this way, the food and the service was so good at the Blue Fox that it forced me to break a rule and go there twice on a vacation. That just does not happen! The Huevos Rancheros were amazing, the eggs Benedict were superb and both pancake platters were scarily delicious!! We were at the Blue Fox during the week, so the lines were not crazy, like you read about on the weekend, but it makes sense with how good this place is for breakfast. Do yourself a favour, local or tourist and fit the Blue Fox into your breakfast/brunch plans!!More

We stopped by for breakfast on our walk to the Craigdarroch Castle from James Bay. We waited 1 hour for a table (3 people). But, it was worth every bite! I had expected a wait based on reading previous reviews. Despite being super busy, the...staff was EXTREMELY friendly with huge smiles on their faces. When we were seated, the hostess thanked us for waiting, and apologized for the wait. The portions are LARGE. Many people leave with take home boxes. You will need to wait to eat here. Limited seating and no reservations.More

It was my first breakfast out in the New Year and arrived right at the opening of 9 a.m. and was excited to finally try The Blue Fox. Sadly I was soooooo disappointed! Expected to smell fresh coffee and bacon frying, sadly was hit with...such a strong smell of the waitresses perfume and got a migraine headache before our orders were even taken! As for the food…another huge disappointment. I’m pretty sure the pan fried potatoes as well as the bacon were prepared the day before, the sour dough toast was hard as a rock, eggs however were cooked nicely. Coffee was meh! The waitress was cheerful however but sadly after paying almost $80.00 for 3 unappetizing breakfasts we won’t return! Save your $ people!More

We went on a Friday around 10am and waited for about half an hour in the queue outside. It was absolutely worth the wait. We started out with one of their holiday themed cocktails, the cranberry mimosa, which was so good, we all ordered another....My other half had the coffee and baileys with whipped cream and gingerbread. Food wise, we ordered the eggs and chorizo, bubble and squeak, then one meat Migas, and one veggie, that came with fried banana. Really tasty, huge portions and great service. Thank you.More

Good food, nice unique options. A bit pricey, but expected for a trendy place. Friendly staff and decent service. Had to wait outside in line for about 10 minutes which wasn’t bad compared to what we had heard. The only thing I could complain about...was that it was really annoying how staff kept going in and out of the back exit door. It would slam very loudly every time, and we were seated right by it. I’m not exaggerating when I say it happened at least 30 times. I would suggest they figure out a solution for this as it really tainted the experienceMore

The Best Breakfast Ever, staying in Victoria this is a must for breakfast or lunch! I went a few time as the menu is so good I couldn’t decide what to get. The first day I got the oatmeal which was the best I ever...had, with cinnamon and raisins and crème and the second day I had an omelette with chorizo, potatoes jalapeño sauce and special cheddar cheese! They also give you home made jam for your toast! The servers were so friendly and from around the world like Australia. I highly recommend this amazing Cafe!More

I don’t think they are open Christmas Day. The Empress Hotel and Oak Bay Beach Hotel are open on that day for sure. You would need to contact them and reserve in either case.
