If you live in south Seattle, consider a drive down to Sumner to check out The Secret Garden Tea Room. It’s situated inside of a Victorian mansion and has all those cozy vibes you crave in a tea room. That being said, they are currently redoing their dining plans and layout so for the time being you can enjoy taking afternoon tea to go. Be sure to place your order a few days ahead.

Where: 1711 Elm Street East, Sumner, WA
Hours: Call to schedule pick up between Tuesday-Sunday 11 AM-6 PM

Graham’s RoyalTea

This super cute Bothell spot has several high tea menus that you can choose from. Whether you want tea and a simple scone or the full deal, they have you covered. You can also grab “Teamosas” if you want something a little boozier.

Where: 10035 Main St, Bothell WA
Hours: Wednesday-Sunday 10 AM-5 PM

Enjoy your tea, Seattle!
