This is a convenient coffee shop in the downtown core. Decent coffee, though when they make green teas, the water is waaaay too hot. There is not much point in using decent green and white teas if you are going to singe them - no green or white tea tastes good if you use water that hot - it makes... More

They watch and see if you need or want more coffee or food they are attentive. They smile, they have fun, are clean!!!! The rest is all the same for... More

Blenz Coffee was alright. The first day I arrived in Victoria, I bought a chai tea latte here; it was not very good. But I gave it the benefit of the doubt twice the next day, trying two different coffee beverages. They were alright, but I did not love them. When I found a Starbucks the next day (a chain... More

Im a dark chocolate lover so ordered the slightly healthier ( who am i kidding) dark hot chocolate drink and ordered the decadent milk chocolate with cream for my partner.... More

Fantastic place, the owners were very friendly. we stopped in every morning for our coffee/hot chocolate/ice chocolate with almond milk. Has options for all dietary needs and tastes way better than yucky burnt coffee offered at competitors.
