Other things to note
If you enjoy a gorgeous stroll along the beach or through a rain forest followed by a delicious breakfast and coffee at a locally run cafe, you will be in heaven. Some of our favorite nearby restaurants are Tonoli's Deli (best scones and eggs benedict ), Mosi Bakery Cafe (amazing Italian baked goods and gelato), the Roost (delicious baked goods made from grains harvested onsite), The Red Barn grocery (generous breakfast and lunch sandwiches, and ice cream) and Dan's Farm (fresh baked cinnamon buns and locally grown produce in the company of goats, bunnies and chickens). If that isn't enough, downtown Victoria offers many fantastic breakfast joints as well, from greasy spoon diners to gluten free, organic offerings.
