Now this place is cool. The Bent Mast is located in a old Victorian house that was built circa 1884. I mentioned old, right? It is one of the original houses constructed in what is now known as the James Bay area of Victoria. That is the area squished between downtown and Dallas road.
The Best Mast is a casual dining establishment that serves food and beverages until the "wee hours". During the summer, the patio provides many hours of watching the world go by while listening to the gentle tunes of local musicians.
My good friend from junior high school lives just stumbling distance away, and I find this to be quite handy. There is a lot to be said to watching the world go by, while you are in it, on the desk, sipping and nibbling. Give it a go!
