You're definitely not in Kansas when you find yourself at Murchies! Located right in the downtown core of Victoria, British Columbia is this interesting little cafe, tea, and coffee bar. Not only can you pick your favorite beverage from a huge variety of teas and more that are available, but add to that a scrumptious sweet delight for a great... More

I drop in here occasionally to pickup coffee and croissants for breakfast or a sandwich for lunch. They have daily lunch specials and desserts. There is a fair amount of seating space. The line ups are long at the typical work day coffee and lunch break times so if you can be flexible try for the off times. If you... More

This place is deceiving - it is much larger than it appears from the outside! Wonderful selection of teas, treats and food. I brought my mom here for a visit - we each got a tea and a treat and found a little table to sit at. It's adorable that we each get our own little tea pot. I love... More

Mmm...coffee & tea done right! When our out-of-town relatives visit we usually stop in to buy a coffee and to purchase some ground coffee in the (connected) store.

We never miss Murchie's whenever we're in Victoria. Their scones are amazing, and although it always seems full, we manage to find a table every time. They make a good cappuccino, and I don't think there's a bakery item that isn't great....every time.

No visit to Victoria is complete without a visit to Murchie's, and it was my first destination after parking downtown. As always the ambience and coffee were excellent. At 3:45 the supply of baked goods was thinning, but I managed to get the last scone, which they serve with cream and blackberry preserves. Yum! My brother loved his salad and... More

My companion and I visited Murchie's today around 2:00. We were looking for an afternoon pick-me up and we were not disappointed. I ordered the citrus iced tea, my companion ordered the Strawberry Princess Tea Latte with white chocolate syrup and we both had a black currant scone which was served warm with whipped butter and jam. Everything was so... More

We stopped in for break after a day of sightseeing and had a delightful surprise: apricot flavored tea for two served in a big white ceramic teapot that only cost $2.09 US (with tip added!)! Lovely selection of desserts. Tea Shoppe adjacent. Near many interesting shops and less than a block away from the cruise shuttle.

I've been to Murchie's years ago and wanted to return with my daughter. She was excited about checking them out for afternoon tea or lunch. It wasn't outstanding enough for me to even remember what we had. The place was busy which means they weren't clearing the tables and keeping things clean between patrons. I wanted to sit near a...

We came around 11:00am and everything breakfast was sold out. We were extremely disappointed. A turkey and Brie sandwich was fair. A donut was ok. This is self service. The bathroom is downstairs. Water is free.
