After dining at AJ’s Organic Cafe, it's hard to feel guilty. The frequently rotating menu, which features gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options, delights taste buds with hormone-free, locally raised chicken, locally roasted turkey, and organic vegetables locally sourced whenever possible. Diners can dine on sandwiches made with in-house- and Island-baked breads, artisanal cheeses, and housemade vegan mayo while gazing at a living plant wall or enjoying the smells of freshly made dark chocolate brownies and cinnamon buns from their on-site bakery. Smoothies are freshly made with organic fruit and yogurt, plus, AJ’s catered lunches and dinners arrive in compostable, recyclable, or reusable containers.

The Black Olive entices guests with a menu of lamb, pasta, seafood, and other Mediterranean fare. Ardent accountants break from gazing into each other’s eyes by diving into a pair of crusted crab cakes ($13) with red pepper aioli. Kick start stomach gardens with a fresh vegetable and berry salad ($9), a mix of fresh herbs, veggies, and local berries tossed in a blueberry vinaigrette, before packing eager bellies with one of the savoury pasta, seafood, or meat entrees. The Mediterranean fettuccine ($18) infuses the classic dish with coastal allure, as the pasta is mixed with fresh basil, feta, tomato, wild mushrooms, and Greek olives. The popular half-rack of lamb ($26)—New Zealand spring lamb flavoured with rosemary and Cretan spices, in a red wine demi-glace—along with the other range options, including the pan-seared duck breast in a flambéed cherry sauce ($28)—invoke a sense of heartiness reminiscent of a burly cherub baby. With each dish cooked to order, the conscientious chefs pay special attention to food allergies, dietary restrictions, and other culinary demands.

Taco Time Victoria's dedicated taco artisans enhance their menu of fast Mexican eats with shells, chips, taste-bud-kicking sauces, and beef prepared fresh in-store each day. They dish up bite-size, deep-fried Mexi-Fries alongside spicy meals, and for dessert, they shower empanadas and Crustos with cinnamon, sugar, and warm fuzzies to make them extra sweet. Their original hot sauce enflames such entrees as quesadillas and burritos stuffed with canadian cheddar, and guests can take swigs of Pepsi products to cool their sizzling tongues more effectively than licking a snowman.

A&W Restaurant, one of the largest burger chains in Canada, has been trapping burgers between buns and filling cups with creamy root beer for generations of famished families. Choose from a brood of belly-busting burgers, such as the Papa Burger, leading the pack with two beef patties (a $4.92 value). The Baby Burger induces burger purists to shed a single tear upon seeing the simple beef patty on a bun salaciously adorned with nothing but A&W seasoning and a dollop of ketchup (a $1.89 value). The beefy Uncle Burger (a $5.70 value, $0.50 extra for cheese) bogarts all the mouth room, sprawling its sirloin patty and lettuce-tomato-onion suit all over tongue sofas. Round out a meaty meal with a medium order of crisp fries (a $2.79 value) and a medium soda (a $2.34 value).
