We make it a point to go to The Secret Garden at least once a week. The setting is charming, the food amazing and the staff are so wonderful and attentive. The Hostesses are darling and the wait staff is helpful with suggestions and advice. Large parties or just tea for two, this is a must. Dress up with hats... More

II's always interesting to revisit a place that one has enjoyed to see if the same high standards still exist. I am happy to say that after eating at SG recently things remain very good! The owner has been meticulous about presenting a delicious menu, excellent service, and a warm, friendly environment. Don't miss the opportunity to enter The Secret... More

It's such a pleasure to visit an establishment that takes itself seriously. The atmosphere was charming, clean and welcoming. Our lunch (chicken salad and a panini) was delicious, attractively plated and freshly prepared. I will make it a point to visit again. Congenial service and an enjoyable experience that I highly recommend.

My wife and I went here for the Carols by Candlelight tea on a Friday night. This was our second year going to the tea house during this Christmas tea. The service was not rushed, the food was very good and the selection of teas included seasonal blends with spices, citrus and other flavors. This tea service costs $42 and... More

We wanted a cream tea being British and came across this tea house. We both had the cream teas and it was excellent. We will be back and can recommend this if you want to sample a typical cream tea British style!!

Walk into this restaurant and you are transported to a Victorian dollhouse setting. Everyone gets a different teacup and a rose. There is something on the menu to satisfy everyone--sandwiches, salads, omelets etc. Our waitress confused our orders but everything was so delightful, she was easily forgiven. Don't miss the delightful rear area where hats are displayed and people are... More

Great Afternoon tea. The only place you can have a 'pot of very hot English tea'. Varieties of tea offered. Nice menu. Good service. Pity they did not offer clotted cream for the lovely fresh scones!

Not Kid Friendly! Why bother having a Children's Tea on your menu and a dressup area for kids to try on high tea attire....when you are rude to children and do not have the patience for them?

The Light Tea is a great way to try the menu without having to make a decision. You get 5 different items plus a scone and a pot of tea. And everything is always delicious!! Don't miss out!!
