A group of us went for high tea and quite enjoyed ourselves. There is a great selection of teas from which we could choose and our tea was piping hot when it arrived. Then there was a tower of sandwiches and sweets to share. The...More

I met my girlfriend at Venus Sophia for a delicious lunch and tea. Love this place! The setting is warm, lovely and inviting. We had such a nice time chatting and sipping our yummy tea in pretty, vintage floral teacups while dining on a delicious...More
Excellent veggie food, with lots of flavour, elegantly presented in really relaxing surroundings. The tea house does a proper high tea spread, on tower plates, with a variety of sandwiches, scones, and sweet snacks.
Thank you Chris, delighted you enjoyed your visit and looking forward to welcoming you back soon! Regards, Sallie A.
Found this little gem in Chinatown of all places. The food was delicious and plentiful. Tea was divine. I've been to the Empress Hotel for High Tea and Venus Sophia was just as good for a fraction of the price.
Thank you for your five star review, delighted you enjoyed everything!
I stumbled upon Venus Sophia as I was looking for high tea options in Victoria- I wanted something less touristy and ideally less expensive than the Empress. I went for afternoon tea with my mother and my aunt and we all loved it. The space...More

Came in for afternoon tea with family from out of town who wanted a tea experience without paying $80 at the Empress. I'd been here once before and thought it was quite good. Had another nice experience here with the family. Food was delicious, tea...More
Thank you kindly Erin for your positive feedback. I'm happy you enjoy our atmosphere, food and warm service for your tea time retreats with your loved ones. Please do hurry back here soon! Warm regards,
The variety and quality of food was excellent. However, for a Signature Afternoon Tea we expected a more formal atmosphere. The restaurant space is not separated from the take out counter which is the lion's share of the business and the "atmosphere" is non-existent. The...More

Thank you Shellie, Venus Sophia is the perfect stop to warm up with tea and nourishing, hearty food. I'm very happy you enjoyed your visit, please come back soon!
We were in Chinatown and wanted cups of tea and coffee. We were recommended to go to Venus, which was in the area. If you want a formal English experience, with tea and coffee served in pretty cups, and have some pastries, this is a...More
Thank you Joyce for taking the time to write and for recommending Venus Sophia. We are a tearoom with bestselling Afternoon Tea and pastries and a more formal tea service experience as you kindly highlighted. However, everyone is also more than welcome to enjoy tea...More
Granted Victoria's Chinatown could be better called China Lane... so it wasn't surprising Venus Sophia had no semblance to Chinatown either but it was cute enough to draw my attention and have me order afternoon tea. Having gotten off a cruise ship we didn't order...More
Thank you for taking the time to write your positive impressions and am happy you had a chance to visit even though you were crunched for time. Happy travels!
