Mary Mac's Tea Room {Downtown Atlanta}

My sister suggested we visit Mary Mac's Tea Room, which boasts the standard in southern cooking, famous Sweet Tea and their specialty Pot Likker.  Dustin said that the tea was very good and we both loved the Pot Likker, which is actually seasoned, boiled turnip greens and their crispy corn bread.  Delicious!  Ashton had a HUGE hot dog, applesauce and fresh cut potato fries.  While Dustin tried crispy fried chicken, their famous fried okra and green beans, I went for the Veggie Platter; choosing a house salad with ranch, whipped potatoes, fried green tomatoes and sweet potato souffle.  On top of that, I stuffed myself even further, with Georgia Peach Cobbler.  YUM!

We were also visited by Jo Carter... Goodwill Ambassador for Mary Mac's (on their website) and she was such a sweet, friendly lady.  Dustin got his back rubbed ;)!  My favorite part of the meal though, was the mix of sweet breads brought out as the appetizer.  There were cinnamon rolls with sugar crystals on top, sweet bread rolls and cornbread.  The cinnamon rolls were to die for which is why they are not in the bread basket!  We ate those first!  I'm thinking of making a trip back there, just to by a dozen of them!  I would highly recommend making a trip to Mary Mac's if you are in the Atlanta, GA area.  If you are in the mood for some savory, down-home southern cooking, with impeccable service, this is your place.

Take One...

Take Two... Oh well!
