Admittedly, it's been a few years since I have been to Murchie's, but I have fond memories of refreshing teas and yummy bakery goodies. I used to like the Lemon Tarts and Eclairs. They had a very good tea selection including, of course, the famous Empress Tea (from the The Empress Hotel) in a decorated, square, lidded metal box. I... More

The best thing about murchies, besides the hot chocolate and pastry, is how close it is to everything. If you take a stroll down government from parliament to china town you'll pass by churchills, an awesome bar, murchies for awesome food, and a ton of art, clothing and jewelry shops. If you come from china town towards parliament, you'll pass... More

Murchie's is a must visit on every trip to Victoria. Delicious bakery choices with many selections of tea and coffee. Enjoy the scones as they are like no others. Head to the back room where it is a bit quieter to enjoy your nibbles. Part of the cafe is an interesting and stocked store with all things tea and more!... More

a Victorian icon that seems to be full of tourists. I cannot think of much to commend it, except an attractive building in a convenient location.

We had an ice cream in this place which is quite exclusive. The price are quite high but the ice creams were not bad. We didn't eat inside but of course we had the ice creams as take away.

You have to stop in for a pot of tea and something to eat, better yet come for afternoon tea. Munchies is a Victoria tradition for over 100 years. Great tea selections and tasty food. Not a huge fan of the tea room seating but who cares...you come for the goodies. enjoy.

We've eaten at several of the Victoria Tea Rooms and they've all been excellent. However, the amount of food they offer is sometimes overwhelming, and the cost is frequently more than a great meal at a great restaurant. Mruchie's is a Victoria Institution - and you get to choose exactly which delicacies you want to sample (including the "Cream Tea"... More
