The Secret Garden Tea Room & Gift Shop
1711 Elm Street East • Sumner, WA 98390
Hours spent immersed in the pages of Nancy Drew mysteries as a child sparked Elizabeth Kleingartner’s interest in tea. Shortly after she graduated from college, Elizabeth opened the Secret Garden Gift Shop in 1989. Following an enthusiastic response to what was supposed to be a one-time Mother’s Day tea in 2002, the owner embraced an endeavor inspired by her passion and opened her own tearoom. Eventually, the business moved into a Victorian mansion in the picturesque town of Sumner, Washington. In addition to friendly service, guests enjoy the high quality of food prepared fresh daily by Elizabeth’s husband, Mark. With more than 70 teas and blends to choose from, tea lovers will find a haven at the Secret Garden. Reservations for afternoon tea are highly recommended. The tearoom is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
