Some of the biggest benefits to living in Midtown are the endless restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes to choose from, all so close to home! For all styles of cuisine, spanning family friendly chain spots, to quirky cafes and eateries, to hidden gems along the waterfront. You really can’t go wrong anywhere in the area,  but here are a handful of our favourite spots to choose from in the gorgeous Midtown neighbourhood. 

Glo Restaurant + Lounge

Considered a hidden gem among Victoria restaurants, tucked along the Selkirk waterway with picturesque views, and enjoyable year-round with their floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water (and in the warmer months, one of the best patios in town!) Glo Restaurant and Lounge is your favourite spot you haven’t been to yet. Their happy hour is a Victoria staple, with live DJs and food and drink specials that will help you wind down after a long day. Their menu is expertly curated and their rotating specials, desserts, and cocktails will keep things fresh and give you that variety you’re looking for. 

Our Dish Recommendations

For a top of the line experience, we recommend starting with the Glo Flatbread Trio, a sampling of their flatbreads that will hit the spot and prepare you for the entree to come. Our picks for the main course? The Bourbon Barbecue Ribs with potato bacon salad and seasonal vegetables. Maybe feeling something on the lighter side? The Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl will satisfy your palate without overloading your stomach. For dessert we recommend the Apple Cinnamon Creme Brulee, expertly prepared for you to finish off your dining experience. 

Spoon’s Diner

Visitors to the Mayfair area might already be familiar with Victoria staple and brunch spot extraordinaire, Spoon’s Diner. Located in the heart of Midtown, Spoon’s is known for their expansive and unique breakfast menu, but also offers lunch options, dessert, and some of the friendliest servers in town! Famous for their over the top large portions, and the cozy, diner atmosphere that you can’t just find anywhere, Spoon’s is a go-to for many Victorians, and out of towners, to start their day (or afternoon!) with. 

Our Dish Recommendations

Variety is the spice of life, and everyone has a different palette, so why not customize your breakfast to order! With build-your-own bennies and omelets, you can select toppings, meats, cheeses and sides to create exactly what you’re craving. If you’re in the mood for someone else to choose for you, try out The Prusa. Specify savory or sweet, and if you’re vegetarian, but other than that it’s up to the chef to decide what’s coming out. If you’re feeling lucky, you can even flip for it, double or nothing. Finally for the sweet tooths in our midst, try the Saxe Point Berry Stack, your choice of french toast, pancakes, or waffles with sweet cream cheese, berry compote, and whipped cream. Something for everyone!

Part and Parcel

Tucked away in the picturesque neighbourhood of Quadra Village, their artisanal sandwiches, fresh brunch menu and signature entrees have kept Part and Parcel at the top of the food chain of Victoria restaurants. With an atmosphere that welcomes you in immediately, and a menu of staples, as well as rotating specials and beverages, P+P is ready for date night, a staff function, or the warm-up to a night on the town. Make a reservation online today! 

Our Dish Recommendations

Be sure to visit early in the day on Saturday for their weekly brunch specials, our fave is the Brioche French Toast, with rotating seasonal flavours to choose from. If you’re looking for something on the entree side of things, they have a full menu of fish and meat options, our choice is the flank steak with roasted carrots. Finish off with a specialty cocktail, or something off their extensive non-alcoholic menu, and you are set to go. 


One part vintage chopper shop, one part unique restaurant, and one part live music venue. This is the foundation for the illustrious Wheelie’s. In the heart of Rock Bay, during the day it is split in half, with one half serving as a retail storefront and mechanic shop, selling merchandise and servicing old motorcycles, and the other half holding a hot lunch spot with delicious soups and sandwiches and other house made delicacies. When the sun goes down, the whole thing changes into a late night music venue boasting drink specials, live bands, and plenty of friends to chat with as you enjoy local craft beers and signature cocktails. 

Our Dish Recommendations

Known for their decadent sandwiches and delectable sides, we recommend a classic with The Brisket! Discovery Espresso rubbed beef brisket topped with bell pepper bbq sauce and ranch slaw and finished with pickles and fried shallots. Get it on its own, or pair it with the mac and cheese to make it a meal. Don’t leave without grabbing one of their house made ice cream sandwiches.

Moon Under Water

A perfect marriage of pub fare, fresh brewed beer and cider, distinctive cocktails, and fun events, Moon Under Water is an absolute treat. With in-house distilleries and brewers, as well as a robust food menu, Moon Under Water is a destination for locals and visitors alike. The  spirits are distilled in house and aged to perfection before making their way into your cocktails, and with all of the weekly and one-off events, there’s always something going on.

Our Dish Recommendations

On Wednesdays, you have to try the wings! With 15 different sauce or rub options, from smoky and spicy to sweet and savoury and everything in between! Their blue cheese hot wings are known far and wide, and pair nicely with a pint of This is Hefeweizen, brewed in house. Oh, and did we mention they have a dog friendly menu! Their patio is open for business for everyone, and that includes your pooches! Get a bowl of our chicken stew created specially for our four legged friends. If you’re eating well, they should too.
