Secret Garden Tea Company has been serving afternoon high tea in the Kerrisdale neighborhood of Vancouver for over two decades. This old fashion tea boutique has moved from its former West Boulevard home to a larger location at 2138 West 40th Avenue. The space is much bigger, brighter and better suited for larger parties – such as my baby shower just a few weeks ago!
They offer seasonal afternoon tea services like the June & July High Tea menu above with beautiful homemade miniature sweets and scones and savory mini sandwiches. Aside from finger foods, Secret Tea Garden also serves a la carte breakfast and lunch options like omelettes, sandwiches, quiche and salads.

It’s been awhile since we’ve last been back to the Market by Jean Georges at the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver. It is located on 1115 Alberni Street in downtown Vancouver. I always have a soft spot for hotel restaurants (let’s say here, here, here and here). I enjoy the service, the attentiveness and more often than not it is not too crowded. Though I’m also not quite sure why. The food is delicious and the price point still fairly reasonable!
It was the morning before my Baby Shower. Dave and I decided to treat ourselves before some indulgences over finger sandwiches. Perhaps, he feels sorry for me that I will soon be at home doing a one month confinement period.
During this time, new mom’s adjust to the baby and also nourishes herself with nutritional Chinese soups and herbal medicine to help them recover their bodies quicker.
Bruch is never complete without a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice!
Smoked Salmon Benedict 25: soft poached eggs with wilted greens, cherry tomatoes, english muffin and hollandaise. Of course, there’s always crispy hash.
Three Egg Omelette 19: ham, mushroom, spinach, grilled peppers and farmhouse cheddar cheese.
During the weekend only the Brunch menu is available. You’ll just have to come back during the week for their Lunch fare.
