Posted on


How time flies. On October 23 we’ll be celebrating Secret Garden’s 20-year anniversary!

Although some things have changed over the years, we strive to preserve the spirit of The Secret Garden. In a world of franchising and fleeting trends, our goal is to remain timeless. We simply offer: good food, good tea, and a welcoming place to enjoy time with friends and family.

Thank you for being a part of the Secret Garden family. Many of you have been with us since the beginning, and we look forward to providing you with a wonderful tea experience for many more years to come!

Stop by our shop on our anniversary, Friday, October 23, and receive a free petit scone! And of course, you can also sample our featured tea of the month, Vanilla Almond Black Tea. (Please note devonshire cream is additional charge).

We hope to see you then!

Their treatment model is based on the philosophy of mothers supporting other mothers. And the organization has a strong network of volunteers, partners, and staff who help them reach out to 3,500 mothers and families per year.
