A constant stream of coffee and tea drinkers make for a short wait for a table. The pastries must be good we saw quite a few cakes boxed up and taken away during our short stay

We recently moved from Victoria to Calgary and go through serious Murchie’s withdrawals. Each visit home is a must stop in for a delicious breakfast, lunch or snack and a coffee or tea latte. The pastries are to die for! It’s a Victoria tradition and...More

The gleaming cases of pastry delights, fruits and other breakfast fare. An adjoining tea shop and all abuzz with the locals. Service is quick, coffee and tea choices up to our Seattle standards. An atmosphere of the town's history. Clean, spacious, relaxed elegance. Standard pricing.

Some wrote that sandwiches over-priced, but I thought $7 for a well filled and tasty sandwich is okay. Paid more than that for poor quality at other places in Victoria. Good macaroons. Oddly enough, I really liked the grape ones. Did not expect that. Dining...More
