Newly renovated about a year ago, the Charing Cross Hotel Dining Room sits separately from the bar area of the hotel.

TUCKER TAKES UP WHERE PARC LEFT OFF

It’s always a bit heartbreaking when one of your favourite cafes closes its doors, so when I drove down Clovelly Road earlier in the year and saw the windows of Parc cafe boarded up, I must admit to going through a bit of a grieving process. Parc was a leader in the local café scene, […]
