Victoria: Blue Fox Café



08.26.13 
BRUNCH. The meal that I use as an excuse to indulge in my favourite breakfast fare that I’d otherwise feel too guilty eating in the early hours of the day. Blue Fox Café is one of THE brunch places to hit up in Victoria. After a relaxing morning of sleeping in, reading, and just overall calm, we were ready to eat.


919 Fort St.
Downtown
Victoria, B.C.

Reservations: (250) 380-1683 (available for lunch @ 12pm / 1pm or 6+ people in the morning, Mon – Fri only)
Transit: 10-min walk from downtown “core”
Hours: Mon – Fri 7:30am-4pm, Sat – Sun 8am-3pm 
We arrive at noon and were greeted to a 45-min wait. Our group quickly shrunk down to four as the others let their hunger guide them to a restaurant that was less busy. 

Wonder what’s the story behind the blue fox?


Eggs DeImonico (13) – wild smoked salmon, sautéed fresh spinach, sweet red onion & housemade fresh herb cream cheese
A friend who came here before mentioned that the eggs benny were better than those at L’Avenue in Montreal. I love their eggs benny with smoked benedict so the bar was set. The one from Blue Fox Café was decent. I’m trying to be critical but it’s hard when you enjoy hollandaise enough you wouldn’t mind drinking it from a cup. No, that’s disgusting of course I wouldn’t do that (in public…). But clearly, drenched in sauce (what do I do with that random sprig of parsley?), and awesome homefries, my cavewoman appetite was satisfied. Roll me outta here!


Island Eggs (7.50, bacon 2) – 2 large eggs with seasoned panfried potatoes, hot buttered toast & house-made fresh fruit jam. Nothing starts a lazy day better than crispy bacon. Happy times. 


Apples Charlotte toast (10) – 3 slices vanilla scented french, caramelized cinnamon & brown sugar Ambrosia apples, maple syrup. Yeah we finished racing so no holding back on the heavy foods now.


Fox’s Grill (13) – 3 local large eggs, 3 slices smoked bacon, 2 locally made pure pork savoury sausages, seasoned panfried potatoes, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, hot buttered toast & fresh fruit jam
Seems like the grilled tomatoes are there so it doesn’t seem like such a heart attack on a plate. I wanna eat this every day. And hypothetically, I’d jog in the morning and workout in the evening too. And unicorns would exist in this world too. 


We attacked our food with such vigour (damnit, does anyone even use that word?). Then quickly slowed down—it was quite a heavy meal. And definitely a change from tasteless fibrous cereal (yeah, we went there) with skim milk and oatmeal packets that we’d been living on for the past week. We were so happy…haha 


My attempt at a dining room pan shot. 
Verdict: Let’s just say I’m really glad that we have some great breakfast/brunch options in Toronto or else I’d still be reminiscing about this meal at Blue Fox Café. This place is unpretentious, as a When I flipped through photos of this meal, I started planning my next brunch in the city…Rose and Sons! Who wants to join? :D

  1. One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it is
    rather dull with practically no privacy. With all the new advances in technology- that is simply just not the case anymore.


    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various types of glass
    like double glazed windows and patterned glass.
    You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio and other places at your house to give your home
    an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being dull or plain. Purchasing
    glass that has etched designs of nature like flowers and trees or any
    other categories based on your personal taste is possible
    nowadays. So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other furnishings in a
    particular room is indeed possible. There is no shortage
    of choices in terms of glass design. 

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation. Glass is not a
    good conductor of heat. During our hot summer season, with all the advances in energy efficiency
    with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making the room hotter.

    During a winter or autumn period, glass
    will not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer
    and a warmer effect during winter or autumn. You also save money in terms of utility bills.
    Since there is less heat loss, you can turn down the heating system to a lower temperature, which results in less energy consumption.
    During summer, there would not be any necessity to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is that it just makes your home brighter and more cheerful feeling.
    With our famous sunny days, there might be no necessity to switch on lights to light up a
    particular place since there is sufficient natural light.
