The First High Tea Served

Co-owner Kathy Wyder’s grandma was the inspiration for the tea room after lamenting there wasn’t one in Kerrisdale. So Kathy and a friend opened the tea room’s doors in October 1995. Since then, staff have poured countless cups of steaming tea in elegant china and served elegant sweets and scones, along with breakfast and lunch to anyone who simply want a break from the hectic pace of life.

Growing demand for a quiet, old-fashioned afternoon tea spurred the decision to move from its current home on West Boulevard to a larger location at 2138 West 40th Avenue. They will be able to serve more traditional high tea to customers later this summer when it opens, but the traditions you have come to love will remain the same.

The larger Secret Garden will allow for milestone events and large gatherings such as bridal showers, birthdays and other celebrations in their customers’ lives.

Senova Has New Owners

It is with mixed emotions that Manuel Ferreira announces the sale of his restaurant Senova. September 28th, Roger and Nacimce Rasiah take possession of Kerrisdale’s favourite dining spot. Plans at this time are to keep the restaurant name and concept the same, with the talented kitchen and front of house remaining. Ferreira continues at the helm of the famed Le Gavroche with an eye to future projects.

Says Ferreira; “It was my dream to open Senova and introduce fine Portuguese cuisine to Vancouver and the success of Senova attests to that. I believe the Rasiahs will continue to provide a welcoming neighbourhood venue and I wish them all the best. To my loyal and valued customers, I say thank you but not goodbye – please come visit me downtown at Le Gavroche.”

Home-grown champions accented by traditional flavourings and spices, fills the culinary coffers of Senova Restaurant.  Located in Kerrisdale, just outside the inner city’s madness, the restaurant boasts the comfort cuisine of sun.  Join us and see why Senova was named Best Other European Restaurant at the 18th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards. Senova Restaurant is open for lunch Tuesday – Friday from 11:30am-2:30pm, with tapas available during the afternoon, and daily for dinner from 5:00pm. To make reservations or for inquiries please call Senova Restaurant at 604-266-8643 or visit their website at www.senovarestaurant.com.
