Argyle Attic – Victoria, BC

Watermelon, feta & mint salad at the Argyle Attic in Victoria, BC

The Argyle Attic was around the corner from our hotel when we visited Victoria, BC – we were in a great area with lots of selection, but twice we visited, once for lunch (when our feet were far too sore to go anywhere else) and once for breakfast (when we wanted breakfast close to home the next morning).

The interior of the Argyle Attic is a wee bit ‘hipster’ for my taste, but the seating was comfortable (though it’s a small place so not especially ample) and the staff were fairly attentive and helpful.

The location might be a bit hard to find though if you go looking for it – we entered through our hotel both days, going down a long hallway and then a few steps into the pub. Alternately from the street there’s a bar, but if you go into the bar and then up a full flight of stairs, you’ll find yourself in the Argyle. Neither entrance is accessible, which is too bad.

The menu is pretty varied – ranging from Asian food like Edamame and Spring Rolls, Indian-inspired dishes like Bollywood chips and Butter Chicken, Made-at-home favourites like Mac & Cheese and Perogies, and pub standards like Steak Sandwiches and mini-burgers.

We opted (both!) for the Beef Dip on a baguette.

While my companion opted for a garden salad on the side I asked for a  watermelon, feta, and mint salad – which I’m really glad for. I haven’t tried this kind of ‘salad’ before – but it was amazing, and if watermelons were still in season, I’d be making this over and over… Note to self to try next summer!

Our meals (both lunch and breakfast) were both delicious and reasonably priced at the Argyle, so I’d recommend it (if you can find it) especially if you are staying nearby (we also really liked our hotel – the
Quality Inn Downtown Inner Harbour) and need a place for a relaxing meal after a long day of walking or want a casual place to drop in with a few friends.

      I actually made up this salad for my mum’s birthday a few weeks ago.. it was fantastic 🙂 So fresh and light tasting, and super simple to make! (Didn’t keep very well though…)
