Neil's Mobile Work-Spots - Hey Happy

Hey Happy

55bc833e e1ec 41b7 ac83 378be7640c77Another spot with a connoisseur’s selection of coffees brewed with attention & care, Hey Happy is ready for the mobile worker. A series of tables features power outlets and USB power right at the table - A very nice touch. A small but powerfully tempting assortment of treats (including Yonni's Doughnuts) provides an enjoyable distraction to work, as does watching the action of Lower Johnson out the front window. A great little downtown oasis tucked into the side of Market Square, this is an excellent café to pop into to get a bit work done while on the go.

f77bf2db a88b 4531 bc1f 04b94d39d781This cool new café specializes in excellent coffee, brewed in a variety of methods — though the friendly staff and superb treats are great features too. There’s a variety of seating, from a hide-away bar at the back, to tables right in the large front window. It's a fantastic addition to Oak Bay Village, and several other services are nearby including a branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library. I'm a fan.
