We stumbled upon this place on our way to the castle and had brunch. Delicious food (we had eggs benedict and it came with yummy potatoes). We appreciated that we could buy half portions, which was sufiicient for our tummies. Small, casual place.

This tiny little place makes a good basic breakfast in a friendly atmosphere. House made jams are delicious! They also have yeast free toast. If you're feeling more like lunch, they also do a decent burger!

Victoria has it's fair share of great breakfast/lunch places and Avalon deserves to be on that list. Excellent service, affordable eats, and so so good. As you'll read elsewhere, their signature hot sauce is.... incredible.

This small cafe does breakfast and lunch up right. I had the bacon burger and potatoe leak soup. Both home made and very good. Trust me I make both if these and Avalon's are comparable. Also the breakfast hash is very good with their home made hot sauce for some extra zing. Great value too. I will go again for... More

We stumbled on the Avalon after another spot was closed and we were glad we did. This small 28 seat place has a family run feel and our breakfasts were perfect! (try the eggs bennedict) The lunch menu also looks great.

Stopped for a quick lunch on a cool breezy day. We had a bowl of potato-leech soup and it was delicious. Served with a slice of toasted oaten bread, this is a meal in a bowl.It was steamy hot and the coffee cup never ran dry. Our server was pleasant and courteous as well as efficient. The price was reasonable... More

I've been coming here for years and it's been great since day one. I First stumbled here because the Blue Fox up the street had its usual 85-minute lineup going and I was hungry. I haven't looked back and try to eat here a couple times a month at least. Even on a Saturday or Sunday morning it's rare you... More

We wanted to go to Blue Fox but they were closed and the sign said Avalon is open on the next block. Not quite the same atmosphere and the coffee not as good but the meal were very good and the service great. A nice quiet change and no line up.
