We've come here for many years & always enjoy the scones, jam & clotted cream. A solid spot for a light bite or afternoon tea that won't set you bk $40-$50 dollars😊

It was interesting and had lovely china that you can but. There is also a vast array of food which looked quite good but I am not a tea drinker.

Loveeeed their scones here. Hubby and I would duck into Murchies on a rainy day on our vacation (a couple of times) and enjoy a cuppa and a scone with jam and cream and it was delish. Best scones I could find in the city. Just keep in mind the earlier you get there, the more likely you are to... More

This is a large and busy tea room/coffee shop/gift store. Besides selling great tea, coffee, pastries, cakes and lunch items they also have a separate counter for specialty teas and coffees for you to brew at home. At the back of the store there are beautiful gift items such as teapots, mugs and other table items. We were there on... More

The café offers delicious soup and sandwiches as well as quiche(they call it a "tart"). There is a large choice of sandwiches and too large a tempting choice of pastries. I had the special chicken Tart as well as the bocconcini salad and my friend and I split the vanilla strawberry custard layer cake. Great selection of delicious teas as... More

This place is or was primarily tea room, but now coffee is just as popular at least for dining in. For the retail outlet it seems tea is the clear winner. The place really is classy and comfortable to stay for an hour or so with friends and family. Wish there was a place like this at home. Enjoy!

Very good store to buy some local teas and they have a very good tea room, albeit it is a bit on the expensive side.

When ever I visit Victoria, BC I always make a point to stop at Murchies on Government Street. The varieties of coffee and teas to purchase is unbelievable. Then move over to their coffee shop to sample a coffee or tea with a sandwich or pastry. My personal favourite is Murchies Afternoon blend tea and a black currant scone with... More

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
