I was driving by the Village Restaurant yesterday with a couple of friends when we got on the topic of who makes the best eggs benny in Victoria BC. I hadn’t been to the Village before strictly because they oversell themselves using the #yyj on Twitter and it spams my stream up. But the both of them said it was pretty good there but it wasn’t the best in Victoria BC. Not even by a long shot.
Who makes the best eggs benny’s in the city? Here are some of the places that I think do.
All three of us went on record as saying Shine Cafe makes the best eggs benny in the city.
I went there for the first time about 5 years ago. It was before a golf tournament and I was so impressed. All I could think about for the rest of the day was the benny I just had! Last time I was there a few months back I had the B-Rys which comes on cornbread topped with refried beans and has bacon, avocado drizzled with Chipotle hollandaise.
Although they are not a breakfast place and have only two bennys on their menu, there are both really good. They have a seafood benny that comes with shrimp and it’s damn good. Well worth trying if you live in the Cedar Hill area.
I already think Jam is one of the best breakfast places in the city. That’s partly because of their wide selection of savour choices. One of those choices is the chorizo benny they offer on their menu. It’s spicy and savour all at the same time.
If you want to avoid the trendy places downtown to get a benny, try the Urban Cup on Shelbourne. Their bennys are simple yet delicious and you don’t have to wait in line. Great if you’ve been out the night before and need something to soak up the booze!
What are some places or bennys that I missed?
