With any review, I always like to start with the positive. I found the selection of whole teas generous. Both the egg salad and the cashew chicken sandwich were tasty along with the side, frosty cranberry. The lemon chiffon dessert was refreshing and delightful. Is there a negative to dining at The Secret Garden? I only have one comment, inflexibility. For example, my mom asked the hostess if we could sit at a specific table. The hostess responded that the table was already reserved. She then sat us at a different table. After we ordered, ate and enjoyed our tea we noticed no one sat at the table my mom inquired about. As we left to pay for the bill we noticed the reserved table was for someone arriving 3 1/2 hours after we arrived. Another example of inflexibility is there may be a extra charge on substituting sides. Will my mom and I return? We are not sure. We drove 70 miles round trip to visit the tea room. If we do visit it won't be for awhile and we won't sit at table #10 (you can hear conversations from the kitchen).
