Press & Testimonials

An Oasis in the City

“This charming restaurant is the real deal for afternoon tea. The vegetarian sandwiches were delicious, well-filled and tasty. The scones were fresh and light, and the sweet items were beautiful and scrumptious. The service was attentive, almost to a fault. The decor is just right for a tea room and they clearly pay a lot of attention to detail here.” – Review from TripAdvisor

“Afternoon tea? The Royal Family could probably teach most North Americans how to make the perfect cuppa. But while Victoria is well-steeped in traditional tea-serving spots, there’s a delicious fully vegetarian approach at Chinatown’s elegant Venus Sophia tearoom. Don’t miss their amazing lavender vanilla scones” – The Globe & Mail
