City Food Magazine 2004

 If the weekend lineups for brunch didn’t give it away, this is one very popular place.  A Victoria institution, John’s Place has been in business since 1984 and hopping since day one. Their motto “real food at real prices” rings true thanks to owner John Cantin.  The portions of hearty diner’s fare are huge.  The walls are covered with photographs and memorabilia of movie stars, musicians and sports heroes and, for a quarter, the juke box will spins any hit you like.  The Eggs Benny served here are legendary so brave the lines and join in the fun.
