Ramsey's doughnuts are well worth the visit on a busy Sunday morning.  Luke and I share one before our breakfast comes out - kinda like a breakfast appetizer.

It's been a long-time tradition of Luke and mine's to eat breakfast at Ramsey's.

We're usually there Sunday mornings - and sometimes afternoon, if we sleep in too late. But no matter what time we get there, we can always be found in the dining section in the back near the patio.

Ramsey's has been a Victoria staple long before Luke and I started making it our breakfast stop on Sundays. Rather than head to the international 24-hour restaurant chain, head to Ramsey's for some good home cooking.

As I've said on more than one occasion, I am sure they have the best doughnuts. So, Luke and I always start our meal with coffee and a doughnut. Not one each, but one split between the two of us. It's a tradition that one visit, we spread to the table next to us. A woman seated near ours at a table of four saw the server deliver our delicious doughnut - all warm and smothered in butter - and ordered one for her table, too.

If you've not had one, you must give them a try.

As far as the menu, they serve breakfast until they close on Sunday, but you can also order lunch if that's what you're hankering.

They have a the usual breakfast offerings: country fried steak and eggs, eggs and bacon, French toast, pancakes, migas, etc. The options are nearly endless. Luke and I have had almost everything on the breakfast menu. It's hard to mess up breakfast, and the cooks at Ramsey's have it down.

I went through a phase of eating migas at any restaurant we went to for breakfast and their version of the plate isn't half bad. I like my tortilla strips cooked a littler crunchier, but the veggies still had enough flavor to carry through the eggs.

If you're wanting an omelette, they have a few options to choose from including a Western omelette with ham and bell peppers.

So if you're looking for a new tradition to start off the new year, check out Ramsey's for breakfast on Sunday (or any day, really). We'll be there sitting in the back room enjoying a doughnut with our coffee.
