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.
Good coffee, great food and excellent service.🙂👍
Fabulous space, great service, thoughtful menu. New regular :)
Great food, beautiful interiors, knowledgeable and friendly staff.
It was our first time visiting and we absolutely loved everything about our experience. Can’t wait to go back!
We were seated outside for better precaution from Covid germs floating about so the noise level from street traffic was considerable, but that was unavoidable and not a criticism of B&J whatsoever. Otherwise it was an extremely enjoyable experience.
Everything was very pleasant. Good service, enjoyed the food, pleasant surroundings.
Bear and Joey is a breath of fresh air in Victoria. Peter and his team take complete pride in everything they do from their service to the quality of food, the ambience and the overall customer experience.
One person in our party had porridge with bruleed banana, and two of us chose the pulled turkey sandwich. We were all very happy with our choices. I had a glass of Australian rose and it was lovely as well.
Bear and Joey has had exceptional service every time I visit. The food is amazing and the venue is gorgeous. I highly recommend going here for the best breakfast/lunch!
They also put on amazing events. I was lucky enough to have my wedding here and couldn’t have asked for a more amazing venue/food/service!
Friendly,welcoming staff. Nice decor..good menu choices, great presentation.
A beautiful restaurant with fantastic food and very nice staff. Would highly recommend!
A unique experience on the plate and in atmosphere. Will make any breakfast or lunch a highlight in your day.
A real gem of a restaurant. Awesome food, very friendly service, and a great atmosphere. Highly recommend it!!!
Excellent service. Food is unique to them and a welcome change from other places. The staff are welcoming and friendly.
Atmosphere was amazing, service was great. What stood out the most was the food and drinks.. it’s a bit pricey but once you taste it all makes sense, completely worth it- so delicious. Highly recommend.
Our favourite place for coffee and lunch. The staff are amazing. The food is ridiculously good. The coffee is always right. Run, don't walk, to Bear & Joey!
We went for brunch, ate outside under heaters. It was excellent, good service and excellent food.
Definitely the most beautiful London Fog I’ve ever had and I’ll be back for the surf and turf!
we ate outside, was relatively warm, and more importantly DRY!...service is good, and so is food...they do not answer their phones, left 2 messages to ensure booking made i=on Open table, but no response...
Lovely decor, friendly staff, quick service and delicious fresh plates. Definitely worth a visit for a lunch date or cheeky coffee.
Came here for my birthday brunch and was beyond thrilled with the service, food and overall atmosphere. One of my favorite spots to go downtown Victoria!
It was an absolute pleasure to dine at Bear & Joey. They have spared no expense when it comes to the menu, the atmosphere, and the staff. All were outstanding. I will definitely be back.
Attention to customer service.
We worked our way through the full summer menu and every dish was exciting. We had our first try of the fall menu, the spiced oats were hearty and sweet (would definitely get again), baked eggs we good but next time I would ask that my bread not be toasted so I can soak up every last bit of sauce!
As always, amazing food and service !
Great food and service!
Another wonderful lunch at my new favourite coffee shop.
