This is a must stop in Victoria. Even just to look and the lovely tea selection. Food wise, we got the Barcelona and Roma sandwiches to go for our dinner on the Clipper return trip to Seattle. Very tasty and good. I did get three Macaroons and found them to be okay. Caramel was standard, Passion Fruit was great, mint... More

Murchie's is both a shop selling a wide assortment of teas and coffees (probably the most varied in Victoria) as well as tea and coffee pots and similar items and a very pleasant place to sit with a cup of tea or coffee and a scone (or a sandwich or salad) and relax from shopping at one of the numerous...

The best place to recharge and refresh. Whether you are in the mood for sweet or savory Murchies has it! Take a tea break while enjoying downtown. When you have finished the refreshments visit the retail side. Lovely selection of everything tea as well as a marvelous collection of loose leaf teas. This is the original tea store a charming...

Me and My friend were visiting Victoria, BC. I have been in Murchie's before, but not in the coffee shop. When you enter you will see there is a very nice and pricey tea mug and tea store on the left. Its typical British style, but on the right side there is a coffee/tea place with sweets and a few...

They give you your tea in a white teapot and write the name of the tea on it so you know what you got - and don't get it mixed up if there are more than one of you. The tea (or coffee) and pastries come on a nice silver tray. It is a lovely ambience and a nice place... More

Of course it was a cold day and we had heard about this place, so decided to stop in and warm up. The Mocha is out of this world good. And the pastry is second to none some of the best. The line was kind of long but also had lots of seating.

We stopped in here for lunch. The pastries are excellent. My daughter loves the tea and I like the coffee. Orders are taken at the counter. There are tables to sit, drink and relax. The store also sells teas, coffees, and accessories. This is one of our favorite places to visit when in Victoria.

Had a mid morning and mid afternoon snack here and was never disappointed. Good tea and a great latte. First time I had a raspberry danish which was melt in the mouth, next time I indulged in a HUGE chocolate chip cookie. Place was full of Christmas shoppers and although it was super busy the staff (and there was a... More
