Best tea in Vancouver, BC - The Secret Garden Tea Company

Upon being seated at your table, you’ll be invited to browse our extensive Tea Menu to select the perfect tea to go with your meal.

Will you choose our fan-favourite Creamy Earl Grey, or try something new and exotic like our fragrant Milk Oolong?

Your tea will be served piping hot, with a tea cozy to keep it warm as you enjoy our Tower of Treats…

Where to begin?? We wouldn’t blame you if you started off with our hand-crafted desserts on the top tier!

But may we suggest starting with our savouries: Secret Garden Egg Pinwheels, Smoked Turkey and Housemade Basil Pesto on Mini Croissants, and South American Shrimp Salad on Aged Cheddar Muffins. 

Our savouries are so filling, but hopefully you’ll save room for…

Scones at The Secret Garden - delicious, light, fluffy

Our next tier features Tea Cakes and a light, flaky Fruit Scone served with Devonshire Cream and raspberry jam.

Tea Cake flavours vary daily. If you join us on Sunday you’ll enjoy Chocolate Zucchini tea cake, while those on Thursday will enjoy White Chocolate Cranberry tea cake. Every day is different!

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Our desserts are baked fresh in-house, and each one is a miniature masterpiece.

The Mini Lemon Tart is a classic Secret Garden treat. A buttery tart shell holds the perfect mouthful of tangy lemon filling. Next, our Harvest Pecan Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla-Cinnamon Chantilly is reminiscent of festive Thanksgiving celebrations, with an added gourmet touch.

And no High Tea would be complete without some chocolate! Double Chocolate Banana Brioche Pudding is the perfect way to end your High Tea experience. Rich chocolate and creamy banana make this sweet both decadent and delightful.

“The Lunch Day” Tea Story

Posted on


Recently Gina and her daughter, Emma had a special mother-daughter tea date at Secret Garden. We just had to share this beautiful storybook they made to remember the day!

Gina, a children’s singer/songwriter, shared, “My family has four children and once a month my husband and I rotate so that one of us can take all four children out for a 1:1 date (so, each parent gets a date with each child once every two months). Each child really looks forward to receiving that focused attention … and getting spoiled 🙂

“The Secret Garden Tea company has been a wonderful place to make them (and us) feel really special. I see why [The Secret Garden] is so special to the children … because of the cute desserts, the lovely ambience, and the atmosphere of general magic in the air… I’m very happy to have a place to create memories that are priceless.”

We’re very grateful to be able to help families create such special memories together!
