Vegan Big Mac anyone - Edit

The burgers are made of beans with no artificial weird stuff. The gluten free version is amazing and the Big Mac is to die for. A must visit when in Victoria.

Awesome vegan options! - Edit

Local meat eaters were creating a big fuss about how this place shouldn't call themselves a butcher, which made me want to check them out even sooner and give them some support! I wasn't disappointed - their burgers and sausages are heavenly! I tried the smokin' burger and the cheeze/condiments they put on it were just as delicious as the amazing patty! I bought a pack to take home with me. Also some great deli type options. They told me they're moving into a bigger space in the same building within the next two months and will be having even more delicious food options, definitely worth checking them out!!

Awesome! - Edit

My lunch here was excellent. I heeded the staff's recommendation and got the Very Good Burger with a side of mac and cheese and "killer greens". Everything was delicious. The burger patty was well seasoned and had an incredibly meaty texture. Protip: the greens are actually a green salad, not cooked greens as I assumed. I would've preferred cooked greens, but the salad was very good too. Prices were very reasonable. I paid $14 for my meal; I'd say money well spent!

Pros: excellent food, great value

Great food! - Edit

This place is fantastic. It's located in the Public Market. The jackfruit "pulled pork" BBQ sandwich was very tasty, the roast beast was excellent, and the mac and "cheese" was very creamy. The employees were very friendly and helpful. When they saw we came in 2 days in a row they gave us free donuts (which was very nice, but for a fair review, the donuts tasted more like bran muffins, which is ok if that's what you're looking for - not as good as the main dishes).

Hearty, delicious, animal-free meals and cook-at-home food - Edit

"We butcher beans."
I was eager to try a burger by VG Butchers, and it didn't disappoint! I had the delicious Smokin' Burger, which has chopped avocado, red pepper, spinach leaves and cheeze-topped patty on a good bun. Loved it! I've brought home a package of their Very Good burger patties. I'll be back as soon as possible.to try their Reuben sandwich and hot dog.
We're very lucky in Victoria to have a vegan outlet like this. Perfect location right inside the front door of the Market.

Pros: all vegan, all organic, great food

The Newest Jewel of Victoria's Vegetarian Scene - Edit

am more stunned that my little city of Victoria beat (or is that beet?!) out a city like Vancouver or Seattle to get a place like this. It hasn't even been open for a month but it is already making waves and cementing itself as a staple in Victoria's food scene. Offering a simple assortment of delicious, addicting, and incredibly well made plant-based foods...The Very Good Butchers do what they do best. Follow them on Instagram @theyverygoodbutchers to get an idea of some of the amazing stuff they come up with...but better yet, head down to the Victoria Public Market and pay them a visit yourself. Whether you grab something to eat there, or treat yourself and take some tasty fare home for later, you won't be disappointed. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, you will be thankful this place opened up. If you eat meat, you will wonder how plant-based foods could be so darn tasty. Kudos to The Very Good Butchers!

Pros: Simply delicious!, Great value for money, Super friendly staff

Cons: So new and popular than product can be limited, Smaller menu

Love love love this place! - Edit

I can't tell you enough how delicious everything is! Their menu is diverse and difficult to choose from; I couldn't decide between the pepperoni sub or the glutenfree jack and waffles! I went for the waffles and I didn't regret it; it was super flavourful and a huge portion. I also picked up their very good burgers and they are really taking veggie burgers up a notch.
The feeling at their deli is great as the staff are so awesome and the location couldn't be better at the entrance to the Victoria Public Market. I would highly recommend all to go--vegans, vegetarians and the rest to give the VGB a go!!!

Pros: Excellent menu, Friendly staff, Big portions

Cons: Not enough seating area
