The wildly popular Jam Café has set its sights on Victoria's Cook Street Village as the location of its second restaurant in the B.C. Capital.
Founded several years ago in downtown Victoria's Old Town along the 500-block of Herald Street, Jam quickly spread to Vancouver with a restaurant in Gas Town and a newly-opened second spot on West 4th Street in Kitsilano.
Jam's Cook Street Village eatery will be open next year in a commercial space along Cook Street.
As Jam readies to expand into the Village, operators of another chain of local breakfast eateries – aptly named The Village – will soon be taking over the operation of Bubby's Kitchen on the commercial strip's north end. The Village operates several local eateries under that banner with an Old Town location coming soon.
Meanwhile the folks from Bubby Rose's Bakery & Café (further up Cook Street near Fort Street, who are not associated with the owners of Bubby Rose's Kitchen) will be opening a downtown Victoria restaurant in the 500-block of Pandora Avenue by the name of Maman.
Cook Street Village has been a hive of retail comings and goings over the last year. The strip recently welcomed a second iteration of North Park's Chicken 649 fried chicken take-out in the space formerly occupied by Rosie's Diner (no affiliation to Bubby Rose's), dubbed as Thunderbird Korean Style Fried Chicken, while downtown Victoria's Empire Donuts opened location number two in a former liquor store situated in the same building at Pizza Prima Strada. The donut shop expanded its line-up of offerings to also include fried chicken. C
