Stopped by to check it out. Didn't eat in the cafe but I did try some tea and browsed thru the shop. I wanted to buy everything! Got some tea and some gifts. A fun place.

Murchies is the perfect place to go downtown for a sandwich, tea, coffee or very special treat. I've started working my way through the wondrous specialty teas on the menu too! Can't wait to go back to try something new.

I waited 20 minutes for coffee and danish. Made polite comment about wait and manager told me to leave. I refused, she left and another person served me a raisin danish that was stale. When I reported it to the manager she walked away again.
