I’m posting this on Saint Valentine’s Day because last year I spent the evening at The Mint in Victoria. It was a lovely day with a bunch of my beautiful girlfriends and we ate delicious food and drank delicious drinks and talked about how much we all loved one another.
This year I will not be spending the night at The Mint because I will be in Calgary, but because I was there just over a week ago and recalled my lovely time last year, I decided to write a lovely blog post about it.
The Mint has an excellent selection of girly cocktails, as well as some great beers on tap (Phillips’ Chocolate Porter, anyone?). On top of that, their food is absolutely spectacular. I can honestly say that, in all of the times I have visited The Mint, I have never had a bad meal. I recommend it for a low-key night, particularly a low-key girls’ night. I have in the past gone with intentions of going dancing or to a party afterward, but the ambiance is so calming (dark lighting, relaxing music) that I always leave and just go home and go to sleep. A wonderful restaurant overall, highly, highly recommended.
