Get ready brunch fans!

After two long years, The Ruby on Douglas is set to reopen next month!

In an Instagram post Wednesday morning, the owners of the popular brunch restaurant announced their downtown Victoria location would finally be re-opening, after 700 days of being closed due to the pandemic.

Both the Johnson street and Douglas street locations of The Ruby closed their doors in March 2020.

Although The Ruby on Johnson was eventually able to reopen, the brunch restaurant’s Douglas Street location was not able to do the same. 

Due to ongoing physically distancing restrictions in place, and the small size of the restaurant, the original Ruby location was forced to remain closed. 

“Over 700 days ago we made the decision, along with so many other people, to shut the doors to The Ruby on Johnson and The Ruby on Douglas,” the company posted on Instagram.

“Through these times, we have never seen it possible to reopen The Ruby on Douglas under the restrictions that were in place due to the size of the restaurant. We love The Ruby on Douglas as it is our first born and it became a place where people gathered, relationships were formed and memories were made.”

Now, the restaurant has announced they will finally reopen their doors and return to regular business on March 1st. 

Time for brunch!
