Newly Renovated!

From decor and safety to service and taste, the JBI Art Deco Cafe & Restaurant is always on the lookout for ways we can maintain and improve our standards.

For the first time in 50 years, we closed our doors for three months. During this time we underwent renovations, deep cleaning and made some safety upgrades for our guests.



Bright, vibrant and colourful, our family friendly restaurant is located at 270-Government Street in beautiful James Bay Victoria BC.

NOTE: we do not place any cups, cutlery or condiments on the table unless needed or requested by each guest.
