Although Mary Mac’s isn’t your traditional tea room, it felt wrong not adding it to this guide. Mary Mac’s has been serving the people of Atlanta for over 75 years and if you haven’t dined here, you’ve at least heard of it. They’ve been serving up the same delicious southern classics since they opened their doors and don’t plan on that changing any time soon. The story is that back in the 40’s women couldn’t just start up restaurants, so they would use the term “tea room” instead. Mary Mac’s was once one of 16 tea rooms, and now is the only original still standing. From Brunswick stew and fried green tomatoes to chicken and dumplings and slow cooked beef pot roast, they’ve had plenty of time to perfect their southern menu classics.
