Honestly, I am shocked at the reviews posted for the McCharles House. I have frolicked the tea houses myself and while the McCharles house is not as economical as some, it certainly surpasses all that I've ventured not only in design and creativitly, but especially in quality. The food is incredible, homemade and herbs are freshly picked from the garden outside (which by the way is incredible). It is a gem, nestled in a unexpected location but nonetheless special and quaint. The new design they have added to the Home is incredible, and the High Tea experiance there is like no other I have ever had, absolutely remarkable. By far this is the best High Tea I have ever experianced, and I very much recommend it!
