How to Eat Farm to Table in Victoria

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Vic chapter.

Victoria citizens know about two kinds of cuisine: Brunch (I understand this is not a type of cuisine) and Farm to Table. We have the a large variety in both categories, but this guide will take you through a full day’s worth of meals with Victoria’s best farm to table restaurants.





225 Quebec Street

Nourish has “Sleeping Beauty Pancakes”, classic Eggs Benny, all for reasonable prices and they have most menu items with gluten free and dairy free options. Their incredible location makes this a must have for Victoria natives and visitors!


Mid-Day Snack


Charlotte and the Quail

505 Quayle Road

With seasonal soups at $4 a cup, or their infamous green pie. Paired with their refreshing rosemary lemonade makes for a perfect mid-day meal. Afterwards make sure to try a dandelion latte, it is a truly unique experience.




10 Acres

611 Courtney Street

Local BC seafood and handcrafted bread are staples at 10 Acres, and their boston style west coast seafood chowder is “amazing”! Their lunch fresh sheet is an expansive menu with lots of variety. Their slogan says it all, “Farm to Table. We Live It.”.





509 Fisgard Street

Olo is known for it’s ever changing and impressive menu. Their tasting menu and wine pairing is highly recommended. They are a smaller restaurant that is big on flavour. The knowledge and talent of their staff, paired with their wonderful food and atmosphere will leave a lasting impression.




Victoria Pie Co

#6 1701 Douglas Street

Victoria Pie Co promises to work with local farmers to bring “the very best and the ripest the day has to offer.” Located in the Hudson District, the Pie Co has incredible seasonal pies, and even offer a perfectly paired ice cream to top it off.


Late Night


Little Jumbo

506 Fort Street

Open till midnight four days a week, and 1am on Friday and Saturday, Little Jumbo is perfect for late night cocktails and late night food. They have some of the best cocktail names, the “Electric Panda” is highly recommended. The Steak Frites is a crowd pleaser as well!
