Finally, after more than four years of not travelling, I made a short trip to Victoria for a few nights this week. I know its only a short drive but it’s a start. I was invited to stay with old friends (I’ve only known him for 76 years)at their waterfront home in North Saanich. They were wonderful hosts and the views and sunsets were spectacular except when the winter fog rolled in
In addition to an epic tour of Victoria, something Id not done for several years, we dined and a most interesting and historic joint in Sidney Right by the Victoria Airport is MARY’ BLUEU MOON CAFÉ!
It has taken me 81 years to find this place. It opened in 1939. I lived in Victoria for 25 years and don’t know how I missed it since Mary’s is definitely my kind of place.
MARY’S is open daily for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and the menu included genuine Diner favorites. My hosts ordered Seafood Crepes for her and Fish & Chips for him Both were generous and delicious. I chose Liver & Onions, with Bacon. Not many restaurants serve Liver any more and since it had been a long long time since I’d last had it my choice was a good one. Very generous portion with mashed potato, mixed vegetables and gravy. Only $16.95. Good food, Good Value. Service was very friendly and prompt to, always a positive.

Mary’s is decorated with all manner of aircraft memorabilia including aircraft models and some fabulous photos of WWll planes, pilots and news articles. Would like to go back and take more time perusing the photos.
If you are in the Sidney area and feeling a bit peckish, you MUST go direct to Mary’s BLUEU MOON CAFÉ. 9535 Canora Road. Sidney BC
