The last trip I took before the lockdown in March 2020 was to the colonial capital of the province I live in, Victoria. As things quietly went to hell around us (Victoria is a quiet place even at the beginning of a pandemic), we went out for dinners and lunches during the event we were attending. The absolute standout was Part and Parcel. If you can make it there, go. If it were in Vancouver, I’d be there weekly at least.
And if you need a stellar coffee, check out Saint Cecelia downtown. Another place I’d be weekly were it in my city.
