Great tea selections and pastries, in an easy access location on Government St. We stop in as a break from shopping and visiting the inner harbour. The London Fog and Victoria Fog are great teas. Clean bathrooms located downstairs.

After a pleasant but somewhat tiring morning of exploring the beautiful Beacon Hill Park, we needed a really good sandwich. Several people at our B&B recommended Murchie's, and although we had to persuade our 12-year-old, the additional blocks walked were SOOOO worth it. Be prepared for a line at lunchtime, because this place is amazing. Soup (patrons fight each other... More

When we arrived the queue was out the door and we thought of going elsewhere. The queue went so quickly. We sat in the window seats and watched the world go by. So relaxing. After we finished we spend a few minutes in their adjoining shop. Only complaint is they are a little slow in clearing away used dishes

Quick friendly service, great selection of cakes and pastries and a nice atmosphere. A little bit of clutter but I guess that's to be expected in a fast paced environment. Would definitely go back

I normally review places I visit while away from home, so this is a departure of other sorts, as my office is above Murchies. They have a chef from France working in their kitchen, and when one arrives early at the office, the smell of just-made bread and croissants are delightful. I love the service (even on days during tourist... More

After a long drive and ferry ride from Vancouver to get here, my boyfriend and I were rewarded with delightful English-European-Canadian fare. I'd lived in Canada for a long time before I got to visit Victoria, and I have never been so glad to enjoy a good cup of tea, a sausage roll and a good pastry. This place harks... More

Known best for fine tea and pastries, coffee is strong & delicious too. Other guests seem to be mostly locals--workers, shoppers, students--enjoying beverages, breakfast, lunch & snacks. Visit the adjacent retail shop for a wide variety of loose teas (some tea bags too), beautiful pots, cups, coffee makers.... All in a handsome vintage building next door to another of my... More

My husband and I ate breakfast here this morning, and man was it good! I ordered a chocolate croissant and my husband ordered cheesecake. The dark roast coffee was quite good and the ambiance of the cafe was lovely. Despite a long line, we ordered and received our food quickly. The food was super tasty. My only regret is that... More

Good food and a good place to get a sandwich for lunch. The grilled veggie sandwich was very tasty. The Marie Antionette cake was delicious.
