As much as others may argue (to be fair we have so many coffee shops), Discovery coffee is the best coffee in Victoria. I have tried a lot of coffee shops here, and the quality of the coffee and espresso at Discovery is phenomenal. There are other coffee shops that may have better decor, but for quality none are as good.
Each of their stores offer something a little different. The downtown Blanshard store is more corporate and larger feeling, mostly frequented by people who work downtown. The original location on Discovery Street is more laid back, with a relaxed vibe. The Oak Bay location has a more artistic edge, always having local artists on display each month. All of them have the same underlying value of quality coffee and friendly faces. They usually have good music playing too, but at a nice volume level!
Tips: If you need a sugar fix, they also carry pretty great doughnuts! Their espresso is amazing.
