Part & Parcel

We are a small casual counter service restaurant located in Victoria, B.C. Our menu is seasonal, local and changes often. We strive to make as much as possible in house. All meat is ethically raised and seafood is sustainably sourced. 


VARSHA is a family owned and operated restaurant. The family is Indo-Canadian. The fusion of the two cultures brings a unique perspective to Indian food, and their own twist on Indian cuisine. When you come to Varsha, you experience the family’s take on food, but you also experience their family.

Roast Meat & Sandwich Shop

Roast is a lot of things: a sandwich shop, a meat shop, a place to pick up a last minute meal or a healthy salad. What unites everything we do is our singular commitment to craft exceptional, sustainably produced food that tastes great!

Fiamo Italian Kitchen

We strive to bring the best quality ingredients from our local community and beyond to your table. Our menu is prepared in a traditional Italian fashion, with a hint of Mediterranean, French and Spanish influence​s​.

Olo Restaurant

Our kitchen & bar apply a melting pot of techniques and flavours to the best seasonal ingredients from Vancouver Island. Nestled in the heart of Victoria, B.C.’s bustling Chinatown neighbourhood, OLO pays homage to the region’s trade hub roots. Join us to create a unique story of your own!

II Terazzo

Enjoy fine Italian dining in an old town courtyard setting, featuring brick fireplaces and candle lit ambiance.  A lively room full of industry professionals are here every night enhancing your dining experience.

Jam Cafe

Welcome to Jam Café! We are an all-day breakfast and lunch cafe located in Victoria and Vancouver.   The original Jam opened on Herald St. in Victoria in the spring of 2012 and was immediately embraced by the City and it’s dining community.

Stage Wine Bar

A hole in the wall requiem to the local bistro’s, bars, joints and clubs that fed & watered the ideals of “The Lost Generation”.  A group of writers, artist, socialites and general lost souls that haunted the streets of Paris through the 1920’s.  Souls that wore it on their sleeves and refused to live within the limitations set upon them by the society around them.

The Village

With three locations, The Village Estevan, Royal Oak, and Torquay are local gems taking all-day breakfast by storm. Often when I travel the places I enjoy most for dining are the ones found off the beaten path, bustling with locals and exuding a friendly vibe like Tasty & Sons in Portland or Joseph Leonard in Manhattan. The Village restaurants are exactly this.
