The place was one of my favorites, but it is clearly CLOSED! Regardless of what Audrey or Viviane say, if they no longer serve tea, and no longer serve food, and have no idea when in the future they ever will serve food again, then it's CLOSED! And it's a shame, as I gave my sister's bridal shower there, and had Mother's Day there with my mom and grandma, and have gone there regularly for my annual Best Friends Christmas Tea, and have gone there many, many other times for tea as well... Audrey & Vivian are amazing and talented and kind and I have missed being there all of 2007, and now, in 2008, I see no hope of returning for Tea or any food of any kind... Perhaps to visit it as a cultural center due to its historic Victorian architecture, but the point of being there is for tea... So, it IS indeed, CLOSED, if tea and food are what you're looking for... They no longer offer any of that, and aren't saying when they ever will again in the future... And, I, for one, am SO SAD about that! The McCharles House was #1 in my book for a lovely, restful, fabulous afternoon tea experience at its best!
