Back in 1984 John would have never thought that his little eatery would go on to become one of the most popular dining spots in the whole of Victoria. Every morning, when it opens its doors at 7a, the interiors come alive with the sound of laughter, orders being yelled back and forth at the speed of light and people that never cease to crowd in. Belgian Waffles, Traditional Pancakes and Exotic French toasts for breakfast and tantalizing Thai delights for dinner keep the patrons loyal. The desserts are worth every penny you pay, especially the Cheesecakes - a defined specialty here. So it doesn't really matter what hour it is, you can drop in here whenever and the old film stars and musicians now adorning the walls will be ever-present to welcome you!
Used to be a great go-to place but has been rapidly declining since the nineties. Too many screaming kids whose parents allow them to throw food on the floor. Clearly, the rave reviews are a) outdated; b) from tourists who didn’t know where else to eat; or c) from breakfast fans who value quantity over quality.
Great staff and desserts, though.
Ten years ago I was taken to John's Place by my goddaughter. She insisted that I have the Coffee-Mocha Milkshake with Grounds. It was the best milkshake I ever had. Revisiting this year, I found that my memory had not proved me wrong. This is a truly memorable beverage. The very basic food is wonderful, and the waitress was excellent.
I started going to John's Place when it opened in 1984 and was one of 2 places in town that sold Lattes (the other is Pagliacci's on Broad Street). The decor was funky then and hasn't been changed since. The food is yummy and cheap and it's great for kids because it's always noisy and crowded. I was there once when I was pregnant and when we sat down the waitress took our drink order and I said, "I have morning sickness..." She nodded, and immediately returned with a banana. You couldn't do that any where else in town!
