“Bustling place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I really wanted to go to a teahouse. I was meeting my friend for my birthday. But Leesburg only has one teahouse that I know of, and my last visit there was very disappointing. So we met here. The bakery counter is full of great looking pastries, pies, and breads. There were mini-pecan pies sitting by the register. I had a Chai Latte and my friend ordered a Cappuccino. Both were delicious. The outside sitting area is quaint, but it was too cold, so we sat inside. Inside is nothing special -- just typical pressboard tables and chairs. They haven't put much time into decorating or making it feel homey, but they don't have to. People came in at a steady stream the whole 2 1/2 hours we were there. We got hungry for lunch and ordered the soup/sandwich deal. The price was right, as it is on most of their menu choices. The food was average...or maybe a little above.

If you want a place to grab a quick bit or a drink with a friend, the location is great, the atmosphere adequate, and the food a good value. Just don't expect leather chairs and fireplaces and you won't be disappointed.

“Food good but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Very popular with the local "organic" crowd. Most of their food is basic comfort food with quality ingredients. Certainly NO complaints about that! Although I still go there occasionally, I still feel you pay for more than what you get. The do have some fairly decent "prepared" home meals if you're in a rush to grab something on the way home from a long day at work. Take it home, heat it up, and you're done.

“Super Good!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Always always always a great meal and a good value. The people are great and the food is wonderful. When the weather permits, make sure you get an outside table. Great people watching place, too!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Had lunch on a quiet day at South Street Under. The bread was really fresh tasting -- I had the Spicy T-Bird sandwich. It was a different take on meat, cheese and lettuce because of the tomato chutney. Very tasty! It's too bad we don't live in the area - we'd definitely return. I loved sitting outside.

“Consistently Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Great menu, fast service, and outdoor seating. Tucked away from the weather and fresh, fresh fresh ingredients. What's not to like?
