'I lived in Victoria for 27 years, and often made my way to The Blethering Place for tea and scones - your jam is quite simply the best. Every person - young or old, should take the time to sit quietly and enjoy the company of good friends. The Blethering Place offers the perfect atmosphere! Thank you so much - missing your jam..'

' I attended the Blethering Place with a group tour recently and had such a fun time. It was, in fact, the highlight of my trip to Victoria. The owner, Ken, was so hospitable and friendly I felt I was visiting with my own brother. The Bastion Jazz Band was a magnificent ensemble, no one person stole the show, and the musicians were obviously accomplished with their instruments. Food was yummy, but the warmth and friendliness of all was what I enjoyed the most. Made me feel like I was "home."'
