A Hidden Secret was created to address the need for imaginative, tasty and healthy vegetarian food. Our vegetarian tarts and meals are filled to the brim with fresh, locally sourced organic vegetables and fruits, free range eggs, Meredith Dairy Cheeses and Yoghurts. The pastry is home made and you can be certain that all ingredients are 100% vegetarian. We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and we are pleased to have developed a regular following at the Farmer's Markets we attend every weekend.
