My bf and I enjoyed our time at the Sour Pickle! A neat family business; just two folks were working, one person in front of the house and one person cooking. We stumbled upon this place as it (surprisingly) didn't have a wait for a Sunday brunch. We got the breakfast baker and breakfast quesadilla. Both were served hot and tasty. No surprises from what was on the menu, so it was a good traditional breakfast. It'll be on our radar again for our next visit to Victoria.

This place is still one of my favorite eateries, whenever I visited Victoria BC Canada. Food were delicious and very tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. Love the warm decor, a cozy cafe to enjoy delicious meals and relax.

Amazing cozy spot! Service was so friendly and attentive - I never had an empty cup of coffee. And the veggie omelette was tasty and STACKED with ingredients. Wanted to finish it but I couldn't. Big thumbs up!Food: 5/5

Simple food done right, had the Monte Cristo and loved it. The waitress was friendly and it's a nice mom and pop place which is nice to see. Would recommend for people visiting Victoria Chinatown.


Great little hole in the wall spot.Will not that there is not many tables within the restaurant if you’re planning dine in.The decor is what you’d expect of a name like Sour Pickle cafe.. there are pickles everywhere, it makes it interesting.The service was quick from our orders being taken to our meal being served. The food was also good quality for a good price, quite tasty.I highly recommend checking out this spot for a breakfast/brunch area.


Just okay - only posting because it’s so highly rated. Not sure how, but we were really disappointed. Service was friendly. Menu and food were underwhelming. We passed a number of places that looked good on the way here, thinking it would be something special. It was not.

Great place to eat. Cute little place near the value village. Not sure what was better the food or the service! Two thumbs up. Worth every penny

The waffle serving is smaller than what I thought, generous whipping cream and overall taste great. But I enjoyed the breakfast wrap more. I love the salsa, sour cream and ketchup that was serve on the side. The breakfast wrap portion is huge so it is better if you share it.

This is a very small cafe located in downtown Victoria. The menu has plenty of dishes to choose from and I've been going back to this cafe because of the top notch food and friendly service. Prices are a little high but this also reflects on the proportion of food you recieve. The serving sizes are larger than most cafes offering the same dishes. Located a block away from the harbour and has a small outdoor eating area. Place is always busy but worth the few extra minutes to wait for delicious food everytime.

The quality of food was amazing. The owner herself was very friendly and takes good care of her customers. The breakfast was delicious, we ordered a few things and everything was amazing. It was our first time there as we were on vacation to Victoria from Toronto and Seattle. We looked for breakfast places in the area online. Best decision to go to Sour Pickle cafe. Very happy and satisfied with the food, quality and quantity. Highly recommended.

Don’t be fooled by the clever name. The only thing that is more sour than a pickle is me right now. There was a shelf of kids books beside my table, all related to pickles and I wanted to see the titles, but was quickly scolded and told not to touch them because of covid. There was no pickle related foods except one sandwich with pickles on it. I asked for extra pickles and it came with 2 coin sized pickles and I was charged extra.


Really good breakfast for a really good price. It's a simple, no frills little cafe, but the service was fast and friendly, and the food is like home cooked. Our favorite place, we ate here each morning.
