“I have had an opportunity to visit Victoria’s other Tea Rooms and wanted
to take a moment to let you know that I feel your afternoon tea was
by far the best in terms of quality, taste, variety, and value for money.
I regret not having visited your venue sooner.
Your afternoon tea is perfectly priced. My friend and I both ordered the
afternoon tea during our Saturday visit. We compared notes and agreed
that your tea is quite special in that each item served had a unique flavour.
Textures and flavours were not repeated within the savory items
and each sweet beautifully carried a distinct flavour. We
appreciated the freshness and the artistry of each item on our plates.
The fresh fruit complimented the tea service perfectly.”

“I took my husband to your restaurant for a special birthday
high tea (we both have April birthdays), and it was magnificent!
Beautiful, delicious, and fantastic service, all for a very reasonable
price. I can’t wait to try your regular menu when we’re in town
again. Thanks!” – Joelle A., Gabriola Island BC
“Thank you for the wonderful birthday Afternoon Tea today,
for my daughter’s birthday. We all had such a wonderful time,
my daughter thought this was her best birthday so far!”
– Arabella Y., Victoria BC
“I just wanted to thank you again for our lovely tea last weekend ~
I am from the Santa Clara Swim Club Water Polo team we came for Sunday tea.
I also wondered if you have any suggested recipes that might come close to the
delicious scones you served. Our coach is being recognized by USA Water Polo as
February’s Coach of the Month, and he loved your scones SO MUCH that I am
going to try to re-create them. Thanks in advance!” – Tara Dadd, Fremont, CA, USA
“Dear Sallie, Thank you for forwarding the photos taken at our 49th anniversary
celebration in the Venus Sophia Tea Room. It was a real treat for us, the tray of food
was tasty, we enjoyed trying a variety of teas and the staff pampered us.
The tearoom is such a calm oasis, quite a contrast to the busy streets of Victoria.
It wasn’t our first visit to Venus Sophia and it won’t be our last.
We wish you and Alain continued success in your business”
– Sue and Bri, BC
