Amazing place. One side is a sit down coffee shop/bakery. The other half is a coffee, tea, and assessories store. In the bakery side is an overwelming showcase of pastries, cakes, cookies, sandwiches and more. I enjoyed a Victorian Fog which uses lavender tea and I requested soy milk to be steamed in place of regular. Very nice. Worth it... More

My Favorite Victoria Coffee Shop! I love their coffee and they have the best teas I have ever had anywhere! The hot chocolate is so good and they mix with orange too if you would like which is so good. Their treats are the best in Victoria. My only complaint is the staff is horrible! I have been ripped off... More

There's almost always a line at Murchie's and it's usually tough to find a table. Is it the coffee? The teas? The sweets? The savories? It's mostly that Murchie's is a Victoria institution and just as you'd go toGhirardelli in San Francisco, you should go to Murchie's in Victoria. There are a few historic relics from the founding of Murchie's... More

We had a great tea and sandwiches here, we love the Canadian breakfast tea. However, the deco could be improved to give it a more tea room feel.

Each time we went by or into Murchie's there was a line. Sometimes a long line. They are fairly fast, generally, but this week, Boxing week, they were pretty close to overwhelmed. Sandwiches are good, but the sweets are where they shine. They have a great variety, nearly all of which you want to try. Don't go late in the... More

Murchies is amazing. So much delicious looking food. I don't drink tea, so that part I can't comment on, but the bakery portion is not to be missed!

On an excursion to Victoria we were told about Murchies by our tour manager. He was so right! Fabulous light lunch with desserts to die for! Such an enormous selection and a very reasonable price.If ever I return to Victoria I will never forget where to find Murchies.

My husband and I are tea drinkers and thought Victoria would be a place we could easily find a good cup of tea since it was once tied so closely to Britain. Much to our surprise we had a fair share of weak and flavorless tea at the various restaurants we ate at in town. However we had tea and... More

Murchie's was a welcome relief from the price gouging associated with most of the other restaurants in Victoria. Their prices were reasonable in comparison. Their menu offers something for the meat eater and vegetarian alike and, on the 3 occasions we went there to eat, the food was delicious each time. There is a pastry and/or tea for every palate...
