They are upstairs in the Copper owl space.

Citrus and Cane.


Citrus & Cane, in the previous Fol Epi "Paul's Diner" is apparently open, or at least their sign indicates this. But i'm not sure if it is set up by a friend of any council member. :)

My god I thought the hipster restaurant name thing had run its course.

I think it's supposed to be a play on Citizen Kane, if that wasn't obvious.  I still don't understand it, but...

That aught to appeal to that neglected segment of locals who have been longing for an Orson Wells themed lounge.

Moving from Fort St into bigger digs, or a second location?

Most overrated restaurant in Victoria, in my opinion. Only thing I’ve ever enjoyed there was a chocolate cookie.

I'm a big fan of Tacofino and this cuts my walk time there in half  :)

I hope it's a larger location. I find the existing location incredibly cramped.

It's quite a lot bigger than their current location. Plus I guess this means they'll have a takeout window!

Wrap N Roll has closed their location on Fort St near Jubilee Hospital. The owners plan to take a month or two off and then look for a new location, hopefully in the same neighbourhood.

Have we seen this about the plastic domes at QV Cafe?

There's nothing about the dining out experience that would make me want to spend time inside one of these "budget Buckminster Fuller" things.

I quite like the Cone of Silence idea. Perfect for a conversation that shouldn’t be overheard

rathskeller turned mexican restaurant did not last too long.

 

 

 

$149,900

 

 

Large 3600 sq ft 120 seat well positioned restaurant with bright Mexican decor, but easily changed. Location has been a restaurant for many years before current tenant. Fully equipped large kitchen. 2nd floor rooms 1000 sq ft are free, and they include 2 sets of washrooms. Family issues require this sale.

Since the property on which this restaurant sits is part of the Harris Green redevelopment, how much interest will there be in purchasing it at this time?

The picture included in the listing really doesn't do the space justice...

Yes, that's the adjoining garage on View Street. Why not buy the restaurant just so you can get a locked, private parking space downtown.

 

I think it's been tough for that restaurant; not only Covid but trying to get people to try authentic Mexican, not the commercial cheddar-drenched westernized version.
