I have eaten at Sunnyside on numerous occasions and have always had good food and good service. They are extremely accommodating and definitely aim to please. Highly recommend.

I made my second visit to the Sunnyside with high hopes - the first time had been delicious - only to be very disappointed. I had the same meals, the hash, and found the quality significantly below what it had been my first time here, even though it was only a few weeks later. I'd rate my first visit a... More

I go for the Bennys --there are so many to choose from. The soup is excellent as well. There is a patio for good weather and you can have a beer if you wish. The staff are great and the service very friendly. A cosy little place--I recommend this café for quality, service and reasonable cost. One of the best... More

Great food, wonderful staff, great atmosphere! I would go there everyday if I could! It's so close to downtown and very easy to get to, with lots of parking! What a great business!

A trusted friend of mine insisted that it would be worth my while to take a quick trip over the (soon to be "improved") Blue Bridge into Esquimalt, where he guaranteed me I'd get one of the best breakfasts going. (Daily specials too). He was oh, so right. The all-day (8-3) breakfast & lunch menus are extensive, interesting, and fresh,... More

I learned about this cafe from a friend who lives around the corner. Breakfast is my favourite meal to go out for and omelets are my go-to meal (because when I try, they turn into scrambled eggs with stuff it them!). My omelets at Sunnyside have always been great. Today I tried the breakfast sandwich (something I do like to... More

This unassuming restaurant is one of the best places to eat breakfast in Victoria. In my humble opinion, they are top 3 on my list. The servers are always friendly and professional. Good size portions! And the food is delicious!

I knew ahead of time that it was a small place, but we were fortunate that another couple moved over to let us have a table for four. It was not an inconvenience to order and pay at the front counter, but beware, there are a lot of tasty options to choose from so one might want to peruse the... More

The food and drink items at this cafe are fairly pricey on the same level as a higher up casual restaurant, but it is good food and polite customer service. Stick to your budget or you will need to win a big lottery prize in order to eat here every day. Once in a while out with friends is ok.

One of those classic 'Hole in the Wall' places that serves a great breakfast. Try the Heuvos Ranchero, delicious!! Self-service with a smile...loved this place! Great food, great people...highly recommend it for a lazy Sunday afternoon breakfast :). Small, not a lot of seating but with outdoor service and have a Ceasar with your breakfast!

Thank brookebrian
