Immerse yourself in Victoria’s Slow Food movement for a few days and you’ll soon be addicted to the fresh produce, adventurous charcuterie and exotic, mouth-watering dishes that abound. The Humboldt House has created a two-night Gourmet Getaway Package to help you uncover Victoria’s vibrant food scene.
From affordable food trucks to special-occasion bistros; from produce stands and farm tours to wineries and cider works, Victoria has embraced the Slow Food movement with gusto. Vancouver Island’s sub-Mediterranean climate is a boon to growers and restaurateurs who are among the world’s leaders in organics. Tasting local, seasonal food in Victoria is easy: the key is knowing where to start. Breakfast and dinner are all looked after for you in this mouth-watering package.
You’ll start the day with our gourmet breakfast basket delivered right to your room. Choose from items such as Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon Crepes, Cinnamon French Toast with Caramelized Apple etc.. The perfect way to kick things off.
For lunch go forth on your own adventure. Don’t worry -we will provide insider tips on where to pick up the best fish tacone, the richest chocolate truffles or the most fabulous bread and chacouterie so you can have your own romantic picnic. What better way to work up an appetite and explore the city’s unique and varied history.
For dinner, we have partnered with 4 of Victoria’s culinary masters, The Blue Crab, Cafe Brio, Matisse and Pescatores to give you a memorable epicurean escape that will satisfy all of your cravings. And then you’ll take home a basket of culinary gifts to prolong the ecstasy.

- A bottle of fine VQA BC wine
- A $100 gift certificate for one of our gourmet restaurant partners: The Blue Crab, Cafe Brio, Pescatores or Matisse
