On our very last day (well, half day) in Victoria, we finally made some time to head over to Oak Bay. I had been hoping to make it over sooner to have lunch at Ottavio, but no luck. So we arrived full from a Blue Fox breakfast, and there was no cheese or salumi for me. I thought of bringing cheese home like Valerie did, but we just didn't have time to get it together, and all I could think of was a warning from David Lebovitz - don't even attempt to shove cheese in your suitcase.

Although we were too full from breakfast to even attempt charcuterie or sandwiches, the weather seemed nice enough that we would finally be able to sit out on a patio. So it was a cappuccino and a small lemon-current scone with jam for me, and a latte for Charles, along with a sunny patio.
