Nice atmosphere Good service and food but really noisy
I found the ambiance very nice and the staff lovely. Food was enjoyable,
One my favorite places of all time for brunch. Love the aesthetic inside Bear & Joey...but the staff's friendliness is stellar as well! Highly recommend the breakfast sandwich and the ricotta pikelet (it is SO good!) Also love their oat milk lattes! Highly recommend!
Delicious meal and great service. My only minor complaint was that the toast in the Mushroom Toast had a very tough crust, hard to get my knife through; but a wonderful cacophony of flavours.
Coffee is excellent, servers were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent.
From the hostess to our server and food, it was absolutely fantastic! Would highly recommend, super accommodating to our food allergies and kind and gracious! I can’t wait to go back and try the whole menu!
First time there.... we’ll be back!
Always a great experience here. Took a little bit for the food, but Breakfast was delicious! Just need a baby change table in the bathroom. 😊
Great place, good food and service. The staff were following Covid protocols.
The food was amazing. The coffee. I can’t even. So delicious. The staff was pleasant and friendly. Beautiful spot.
Bear and Joey is a beautiful cafe serving up delicious healthy food. The service was great and the food presentation was on par with plating I’ve seen for lunch at Michelin starred restaurants. The portions are perfect as we were able to finish everything and feel full. We got the pikelet with poached pear caramel, baked eggs with chorizo, and the breakfast sandwich for 2 adults and 1 child. The cocktails and coffee were also very good and beautifully presented.
I wished I lived closer to this place so I could go weekly.
Tasty food. Excellent friendly service. We will be back.
The decor is super cute and the food is yummy! New favourite brunch spot.
Delicious food, great drinks, gorgeous room and excellent service! We'll be back for sure!
We just love this spot, everything about it is lovely!
The decor & architecture is amazing too! Wish I could go pop in daily!
The menu is still quite limited and I was a bit disappointed in the portion size but taste was good and service excellent.
VG salad. Pleasant, efficient server. Good drip coffee, tho I prefer stronger. Prices not cheap, but not usurious.
I could do without the ice cream parlor decor, but that's me.
Baffles hung from ceiling (or something) might reduce noise.
I have recommended, with caveats.
It was a great experience. The food was tasty, the dining experience was fun. I will most definitely come again. Thanks Mate!
This is a great place for any type of setting. The food is amazing and the coffee choices are just right. I would recommend this place as a definite must!!
IOI enjoyed my 2 experiences, within 3 days of each other. The music is a bit loud though which worked against having a good conversation. I have recommended B and J to three others. Victoria
Fantastic food, ambiance, service, and overall experience.
It is my fav place in Victoria.
The food was delicious, the atmosphere chic and the service great.
I absolutely love Bear & Joey, so does everyone who we bring here. The people are awesome, they have the best flat whites, their cocktails are delicious, and the food is phenomenal! One of my favourite places in Victoria!
Food was not as described on the menu. Items we ordered were forgotten. Lovely decor though for coffee and something simple.
Very lovely space. Great safety protocols in place. Good food, try the halloumi sandwich!
Tastefully decorated interior. Everything was great from the moment we arrived until we left. Food wonderful, good quality and tasteful and served hot! Overall A+ we will be back!
The mushroom toasts are fantastic..add bacon and you are in heaven....
Great decor , great service , food was good . Really liked the open table way of making a reservation
It was excellent
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish! Would definitely recommend it
Have been twice for brunch and tea now, both times have been fabulous! Staff is very welcoming and kind, and the atmosphere is great. Can’t wait to come back and try more things!
Delicious, fresh, beautiful food! The ambiance so, so, amazing!!! Every little detail! Gorgeous. Lovely, friendly servers. I wish I was local so I could visit weekly! Thank you!
I didn't, like the chorizo in baked eggs food. They were not tasty.
Beautiful place, amazing workers!
Delicious breakfast offerings
Definitely a restaurant to return and enjoy again. Pleasant staff and excellent salad.
