With the amount of restaurants in this area with amazing value, a $9 tiny sandwich just doesn't cut it. Two small slices of rye bread, a thin layer of mustard and warm meat that was nothing special.
So many better places to spend money and leave full and satisfied. Maybe there are people willing to pay this price for this "specialty" meat, but overall this was a disappointment for me and I won't go back.

My friends and I recently had brunch at Blue Coast on recommendation and were so disappointed it was actually comical. We felt lucky off the start because we were able to sit in the section with lights on (as opposed to several tables in a part of the restaurant without this seemingly basic "feature"). Our server was nice, although mistakes were made, and was fairly quick, likely due to the place being a quarter full. The menu looks a bit like a scrapbook with cut-out pieces of paper taped over various items and garish clip-art and food photos throughout. Ambiance and decor is odd (and not in an enticing way), with fake gold grapes and vines alongside retro-style booths. Everything up to this point I could look past if the food had been delicious. Unfortunately this was not the case. Hollandaise sauce tasted out of a package and the "avocado" was actually some horrible green-brown paste smeared on the english muffin. In the end we were pleased that none of us got sick from the food. Prices were way too high for this disappointing experience and we left irritated we had just spent $70 on brunch for four at this place when there are so many delicious places to eat in Victoria. Learn from our experience and stay away from the Blue Coast.
