We found this place to be quaint and wry cute! Unfortunately we arrived an hour from closing so the lunch was not an option. But we all enjoyed our tea selections and really enjoyed the scones and lemon cheesecake! Fun experience for our short time...More
Thank you for your positive feedback and we hope you visit us again should your travels bring you back to beautiful Victoria!
Went for lunch and had the tea sandwich/salad lunch plate. For $18 it was underwhelming sadly. Tea sandwiches were 4 different kind of cream cheese on bread, there was a small salad and the best part was a tiny piece of kale quiche that was...More

Our first visit to Venus was ok. We had English cream tea which consisted of two scones with jam and cream, plus tea or coffee. I am not a tea drinker but thought I would be ok there with the coffee, but unfortunately you do...More

I have been to Venus Sophia many times since it first opened up in Victoria. First ever visit, I had a brunch dish, wasn't that impressed. But I often give places 2nd or even third chance. I went back when they started afternoon tea services...More

The Venus Sophia was excellent and has an inviting atmosphere, good food and great staff. It could use some vegan friendly pastries, but otherwise it high quality but at a fair value.
Thank you Joel for your warm feedback! Delighted you enjoyed your tea time and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

I am a solo traveler and ordered the savory for one. I found the variety of finger sandwiches well balanced in flavor and ingredients. I ordered the rooibos tea with lavender and rose. Lovely. This tea house was recommended by the hotel staff for it's...More

We'd heard the afternoon tea was excellent and so stopped in to see for ourselves. We had the smaller afternoon tea ($22.00) which was more than enough for us. A few small delicious tea sandwiches, and 5 or 6 small samples of lovely deserts. A...More
