Polly brought me to Murchie’s Tea & Coffee in the Richmond Automall for our ladies’ meet. I have no idea that such a place exist as I only go to the ring road in the automall.
Murchie’s Tea & Coffee is located in the Crestwood Commerce Center across the Lexus dealership. It is next to the Boston Pizza.
Murchie’s Tea & Coffee mainly caters for the surrounding business. It is not very big; just a few tables. It only opens for breakfast and lunch.
Tea seems to be the specialty here. So, Polly and I decided to have tea instead of coffee.
Polly ordered the Raspberry Temptation. It is raspberry tea with chocolate. She had the regular size which is $2.85. The raspberry flavour does accentuate the tea.
I had the Murchie’s Medley which has a nice vanilla flavour.
Murchie’s serves a good range of light lunch and snacks like sandwiches, wraps, baked goods, soup and dessert. We love what we saw.
We started off with a Ham & Cheese Croissant. It’s $3.50. We were asked if we like to heat it up and of course we do. The Ham & Cheese Croissant here is slightly different from those we find elsewhere as the ham and cheese is rolled inside the croissant instead of stuffed into a sliced open croissant.
The next item is an Almond Croissant. It is humongous. It is the size of two regular croissants. Guess how much it costs. It’s only $2.75. It is topped with lots of slice almonds and the creamy filling is just right, not too sweet. I’m definitely coming back for this the next time I bring my car for service.
Next we had a Berry Cream Puff. It has fresh blueberries and raspberry. We find that the cream is too rich for us. The cream puff is $2.95.
Our last item is a Strawberry Rhubarb Square. It is $2.25. It is soft and lightly tangy. Good to balance off the rich cream puff.
Murchie’s accepts credit card. Murchie’s has those valued customer card where you get a stamp each time you purchase a cup of tea or coffee and you’ll get a free regular cup of tea or coffee after you collect 10 stamps.
