The teas offered by this beautiful little jewel of a teahouse are simply wonderful. They offer a fabulous variety, definitely worth an hour or two of your time to stop by. I find their baked goods slightly lacking but with the right tea even the worst scone or biscuit can be made delicious. Definitely worth stopping in.

I like a savoury bite with my tea...or failing that a greater variety of pastries...a scone or cheese scone wouldn't go astray. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely place, a much needed, diverse option in an apt location. The staff are lovely, the vibe is great, the teas -- fabulous. But if you get nibbley and you don't have a very sweet tooth you won't be lingering here, in a setting that begs you to linger...also the same, short play list on repetition may drive you out sooner than you'd have liked.

Awesome tea! The best vibe and very very good carrot cake! Some desserts are not the best but generally they are good. The tea of course is always great!

If you enjoying sampling new teas in a relaxing and cosy environment, then The Secret Garden is a place you must visit. They have a wonderful selection of green, black, herbal and Rooibus teas. You can buy little bags to bring home as well as purchase the pretty tea sets on offer. They have an area along one side of the shop that has cushions, games and a guitar so you can be lucky enough to be treated to some tunes while enjoying your tea!

I met friends here for afternoon coffee. The staff were friendly, and the selection of teas were good (we had both tea and coffee and stayed for hours!). Good value, too. Maybe the place would benefit from some rugs or a carpet on the floor, just to make the place feel cosier, but that's just personal preference.
