Last month The Secret Garden was featured in two local blogs!

Top 8 Weekend Activities in Vancouver

Curiocity Vancouver named The Secret Garden as one of their top 8 Weekend Things To Do. They say:

“A Saturday high tea date is the most darling activity for a rainy weekend, and Secret Garden Tea Company is Vancouver’s most popular place to get sipping. Order breakfast, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea, or sample their beautifully homemade miniature sweets and scones.”

West Coast City Girl recommends The Secret Garden as part of her top 13 Ideas for Giving Experiences This Christmas. She writes,

“This is a great girls’ day or female family members outing. Secret Garden is always a winner (and is very good value for money!)”


Happy Birthday!

Photos of the early days at the Secret Garden

23 years have flown by so fast! We opened The Secret Garden with the goal of creating a welcoming place for people to slow down, connect with others, and enjoy the simple things in life… like delicious food and a hot pot of tea.

Although the Garden has grown and changed over the years, we are still working to carry out our mission every day. Here are a few photos from Kathy’s photo albums of the Garden’s early days:

Thank you for being part of this journey with us. We look forward to providing you with a wonderful tea experience for many years to come!
