A long-time Secret Garden customer recently shared some of her favourite teatime memories:
Judith has been a Secret Garden customer since the very beginning. Soon after the Secret Garden opened, her family developed a multi-generational tradition of meeting for lunch at the Garden every Saturday. As Judith’s mother became older and less mobile, this Saturday gathering with children and grandchildren became a very special highlight in her week.
Judith’s family also took their new-found love of High Tea abroad. While traveling in London they visited many well-known spots for tea, including Fortnum and Mason, The Dorchester, and Brown’s Hotel. While each tea was delightful, in the end they decided they actually preferred Secret Garden’s High Tea over the more traditional British High Teas!
“The Secret Garden continues to play an important role in our family life,” Judith explained. “We always attend special occasions including Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day. Everyone in the family has their favourite pastry!”
