Who else used to frequent STEAMERS. That place was there on Yates for many years. Lots of live bands and pool tables. 

 

Also Merlin's was quite a regular joint for a while

The Old Forge, Tillicum bicycle club, Churchill hotel,  BBJ, waking up and trying to figure out where you left your car and who you were with and where you were. Good times.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Maybe it was good times back then but today it doesn't work for me.

Who remembers the "Muffin Break" ? There were a few around Victoria.

 

This was believe it or not before Victoria even had a single Tim Horton's.

 

Time Horton's of course eventually drove Muffin Break out of town.

Wasn't there one on Fort near Douglas where the chocolate place is now?

Those were Mmmuffins, right? I did a double take when I stumbled across one in downtown Montreal a few years ago!

They might have been. I never paid that much attention to the muffin mania era.

When they were at Hillside and Mayfair they were Mmmarvellous Mmmuffins. Then the chain went through various buyouts and name changes and became mmmuffins before being swallowed up by the same corporation that bought out Timothy's Coffee. According to Google there may be a few rogue ones still hanging on.

My friend used to work for locally owned Muffins N' More (I think that was the name).  There used to be one at the corner of Langley & Broughton and another across from London Drugs which is now a Dolce Vita.  This would have been the early 90s.

Muffin Break......... I remember the one beside the Royal Bank at Tillicum and Burnside where the Chinese restaurant is. I also remember the Muffin Break on Shelbourne across from the Fairways where I think the Panago is.  And I think there was one at Fort & Foul bay in that little plazza but can't be sure.
