Chic Chateau in San Jose will remain open!

I went down to Chic Chateau for lunch today to check out the sale and see what's up. I was happy to find out that the tea room will remain open, and it's only the boutique that is being closed. Even better, when I asked the staff about the sale, I was told that the retail items are being cleared out because the tea room is going to expand into the former retail space! They expect the tea room to be busier than ever, so while the tea equipment is not for sale, all the clothes and accessories are 50% off or more. Go on down to check out the sale, and perhaps stay for a savory crepe or scone and a pot of tea! You'll leave relaxed and happy, maybe even with something great for your closet or jewelry box!

I also asked about making reservations for tea and was told to pick up a take-out style menu, and call ahead to schedule. They ask that groups not only reserve the date but decide what they will eat ahead of time, so that everything can be ready when you arrive. I will definitely be doing that this summer!

No comments:

Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And, while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
