My foodie friend will make a trip for scones to Murchies when we do "breakfast at Wimbledon" in front of the TV. It's a bit of fun.

A great place for coffee or Tea anytime. Great food no matter if its Breakfast, Lunch, or Afternoon Tea. It's quick, easy, fresh, and very reasonable! Choose what you want from the long glass display counters. Once you have completed your order, it will be assembled on a Silver Tray for you. Indoor and Outdoor seating ( I like the... More

Easy to reach along the Government Street, this restaurant was so ideal for our breakfast. There were always lots of choices and we tried both the London Fog & Victoria Fog on two consecutive days; superb English Tea found nowhere in the City. Sandwitches, salads, pastries and desserts displayed in the window were so lovely but easily filled your stomach... More

Murchie's is a tea house/dessert spot in downtown Victoria. It is always busy and a little cluttered. Finding a seat can become a bit of an elbowing contest, but the desserts are good and the coffee/tea is just fine. The bread pudding I ate was awesome, but I could feel my heart beginning to clog with each bite.

Just walking in and seeing the dazzling display of baked goods is worth going in. We shared a couple of really good sandwiches, and then shared pastries. Everything we ate was very good. My daughter had a really tasty espresso. We strongly suggest the tiramasu. They have some great loose tea there to buy also. Enjoy!

Every trip to Victoria we always save time for a trip into Murchies on Government Street to have lunch! Great food, helpful staff, & the adjoining shop is great for anyone who loves teas. Highly recommend the Prince Charles blend tea, it is a good strong tasty blend of teas, amazing. We load up on it when we are ready... More

A great place for a spot of tea and dessert. I recommend the black and green tea blend made in Victoria, BC.
