    We were here on a very rainy Sunday in Athens. Teas were very comforting. We ordered the Royal tea which includes a pot of tea and cocktail. There is a variety of teas and cocktails to choose from. If i could offer a suggestion, regarding the ambiance. I see from other reviews that this was noted by others as well. i think people come with expectations for “ a high experience tea” and that did come through at the Cafe.

    We loved our tea at TCOL. I highly recommending getting a side of lemon curd to go with your scones- amazing! The sandwiches and treats, too, made it a complete meal. So glad we came when my sister-in-law was in town :)

    Our service was great which is always a plus & a “tea room” experience fun! But- the food was not, we ordered 2 gluten-free & 1 regular tea. Sandwiches were dry & skimpy, g-free scone was just pieces of g-free toast, not a g-free scone. Regular scone was delicious as well as our tea choices! I will return but order something else, other menu items looked good.

    We reserved the Royal tea for two for a birthday. It was lovely. The sandwiches and all the snacks were so tasty! You’d better come hungry! The tea was delicious as well. Wil definitely do this again.

    I took my best friend there for her birthday. We had to pay before we sat down including the tip. We had cold tea since it was so hot and couldn’t get a refill for free. The scones were hard as a rock. It was very warm inside. The service was terrible. I won’t be going back there.

    We reserved a spot at The Cafe on Lumpkin after searching for "little girl's tea party". This spot was perfect! The food was wonderful and the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and made our granddaughter's day perfect!

    What a wonderful experience! We had some skeptics in the group, but they were quickly won over by the friendly service and tasty food. Two people in our party said it was the best dining experience they’ve ever had. We will definitely be back!
