Took the family here for high tea - the girls LOVE this place. Enjoyed every minute of it! Excellent tea flavours, and the goody plate (as I call it) was stacked to the hilt with an amazing amount of treats and savoury goodness. It was...More

During a recent visit to Vancouver, I had the pleasure of sharing lunch with a friend at The Secret Garden in Kerrisdale. What a lovely refreshing experience. The decor is very bright and inviting, while traditional and unique. We both enjoyed the quiche of the...More

Bright, pleasant atmosphere but it does get very noisy when the room is busy at tea time. We were a group of four women and two young girls. The youngest was thrilled to find a miniature table near the entrance, all decked for a playtime...More

I went with an old friend and we we could not get enough of the creamy Earl Grey tea! Treats are tiny, tasty and fun to have a tired tray at the table. Cozy and sweet atmosphere.

Recommended by a friend and well worth visiting. Impressive decor. We have gone twice—once for coffee and baked goods and once for lunch. High Tea though is too much for us. We decided to go for the 3 small pastries and coffee. The three-tired High...More

Visited for the 12pm high tea sitting. The location is 10mins from Granville island by taxi. It is in a bright and airy setting but it got very noisy - had to tell across the table to be heard. The food was plentiful and so...More

I was recently at the Secret Garden for tea with friends. They're new location is gorgeous. Bright and airy and somewhat modern though with a classic twist. The vanilla almond tea was incredible and all of the food on the tea menu was delicious. One...More

Great lunches and wonderful full teas. The pastries are fantastic, so even if you don't order a full tea, do order dessert with your lunch. The staff has alway been friendly and helpful. We love the new location since it can seat far more customers...More

What a lovely find! We walked in without reservations on Easter Monday. While it was busy, the service was friendly and accommodating (a senior with a walker, no problem!) and the food fresh and delicious. Highly recommend the Secret Garden Salad, the Secret Garden trio...More

Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district.
In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer,
at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called
"The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and
one-off shops crowd its streets with products and
services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of
town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many
of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry,

Not really. Vancouver is somewhat informal. Most places expect shoes and shirts but in warm weather, shorts are acceptable.
