Victoria’s Popular All-Day Breakfast Spot ‘Jam Cafe’ Set To Open On Beatty Street


This is great news for all those who don’t believe breakfast should have set hours of operation. Jam Cafe, the very popular all-day breakfast/brunch spot in Victoria, is coming across the Strait to open a 50 seater in the original Cafe Medina location at 556 Beatty Street. (Until recently, it was the short-lived Danica’s Cafe)

Owners Jim and Candy Walmsley have joined forces with Mike Deas-Dawlish (ex-Aburi Restaurants, Sequoia Group) and executive chef Buddy Wolfe (ex-Seasons In The Park) to execute the project with chef Scott Mins (ex-Grub). They’ve just taken possession of the address and expect to have the warm and rustic comfort food restaurant open at some point this spring.

I’m looking forward to this in a big way. The one in Victoria really has my number. They do an all-day plate called The Gravy Coupe, which sees fried chicken and sausage gravy on a buttermilk biscuit with a pair of sunny-side eggs and hashbrowns. True story. They also do seven different eggs benedicts. Oh, and remember when we touted that decadent nutella and banana sandwich at Homer St. Cafe a week or two ago? Yeah, Jam does one of those too (they call it a “Cracker Jack”).

At the top are four images taken from the construction site this morning (thanks SC). Below are a few shots I took at Jam in Victoria last summer.
