Each time I have been to Shady Gables it has been a wonderful experience. I love that they renovated this older house rather than being faux old. Having all the smaller rooms or nooks within larger rooms ensures each group whether small or large feels like they are in their own place. The whole leaf tea choices are innumerable, I especially like the custom blends of black and green tea like Angel Dream. The food is always consistently good, whether the savories or the sweets. I have gone to the tea at Buchart Gardens in Victoria, Vancouver BC and this surpasses it.
