“Our favourite place for afternoon tea in Victoria. Friendly service, lovely food and ambiance. Quality that rivals the famous tea spots without the inflated price.” – Lauren, Victoria BC

“The BEST Afternoon Tea in Victoria!” – Tasha, Victoria BC


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