Excellent homemade pastries, sandwiches, scones, and various teas and coffees. Quiet haven in busy downtown Victoria. There is so many different blends of teas, coffees, etc. for the consumer to buy to take home with you , as well as other items, that it is hard to know where to look first. You have the choice of inside seating or... More

Murchies has a lovely atmosphere, very local, very quaint, very Victoria Island. The food was good but semi unavailable when we go there. SO GET THERE EARLY! Good coffee and food otherwise!

We struggled with the taste of coffee and tea in room and at breakfast in the hotel so looked for some decent supplies. This was excellent (for Brits, a bit like Whitards). Plenty of choice, good advice but don't expect low prices. You get what you pay for in this case.

We visited on our only day in Victoria. This is a tea and coffee lovers dream. They sell everything you could ever want in teas, coffees, cups, accessories, etc. They even have a sit down restaurant with freshly baked goodies in addition to teas and coffees. This is a 'must visit' kinda place!

This morning, Remembrance Day some friends of ours joined us for coffee pre-ceremony. I was standing in line awaiting my turn for coffee. I was deeply touched and pleased to have been offered a free cuppa as I had my old RCAF flying jacket on with medals, UN beret and badges. So wonderful to be recognized and thanked for my... More

If your looking for the best traditional experience in Victoria BC, this is a must place to try. Coffee was good and English style tea's are served in real Tea pots. Breakfast scones are fantastic and filled with eggs and ham or bacon. The interior is a step back in time with super friendly staff.

It has been a number of years since I went to Murchies and the saying holds true, you can never go back home. It use to be a great unique coffee shop but sadly just another example of losing its identity by becoming 'main stream'. Don't get me wrong, they still serve great coffee but the treat add-ons are way... More

Great lunch menu and dessert variety. Nice tea room for eating and relaxing. Tea and coffee shop next door to bring home some flavors of Victoria. Price is reasonable as well.

I love their tea latte and pastry. When I visit Victoria, I have breakfast here every morning. Interior is very nice. Many choice of cake and pastry, This time I tried cake and Cream Brulee but bit disappointed. Both of them were too sweet but not much flavour. I'll still come back here and try another one for sure.

Great place to stop for lunch or a treat with your Tea (or coffee). Right across from "The Bay Centre" it's the perfect respite from a day of strolling & shopping.
