This is hands down the best place to eat breakfast in Esquimalt, It is hard to say what is the best... I love to food they prepare, the potatoes are grilled, NOT deep fried, the sausages are the best. I only wish they opened sooner (I Start work early)

I had the Eggs Benny with fresh vegetables, mushrooms, avocado...was very good and served with homemade hashbrowns and fried tomatoes. My husband had the bacon and eggs with all the fixings, he said it was very tasty! Had great coffee as well.

Who doesn't love the option of breakfast all day long. It was busy, but our food came quickly and the service was helpful and kind. The building is a bit hidden, but it is well worth the search to find it. I enjoyed the daily special and would have it again if I am able to go back. Wonderful, quick,... More

This place is kind of hidden on Esquimalt Road. If you are not looking for it, you might miss it. It is a downstairs (just a few steps) restaurant right next to the Bike shop and across from the fire hall and police station. The food has always been great, they have several different options, and it has always been... More

When we were told about this Cafe we had a bit of a time finding it. It is located on Esquimalt Rd, the main street and appears a bit below street level. There is an outside eating area as well as inside. They make their own soups and are very unique with their menu. We had a breakfast that was... More

I have tried bennies at a lot of restaurants, I'm picky (no question there) and am also capable of making them myself, poorly. So I know how difficult the whole task is. That said, in my opinion, the secret is totally the in hollandaise sauce. I've been going to Sunnyside for many years now, as long as they've been open... More

This is the cafe on Esquimalt road underneath Action Motorcycyles. Looks like a groovy type of place. I went their with a friend who suggested it as I hadn't been here yet. Fairly small, narrow sit-in cafe but with an outside seating area. Unfortunately that part is slightly below ground level so view isn't quite what it could be. I... More

I've been to Sunnyside Cafe a few times in the past two years and it has always been decent. This past visit the food was so bad that I will not be going back. I really wish I had taken a picture. The "hash browns" were not crispy or fried at all. They were more like boiled potatoes (not even... More
