Neat place for a delicious lunch. This used to be a pharmacy, and has now been turned into a restaurant. All hosts/waitstaff are students at the nearby College. The food was tasty, and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed our lunch.

The atmosphere is nice but the service was just ok I expected ladys in aprons serving us. Our server was a man and several men were also servers as well. It is not the white glove formal affair the food was exceptional and the table was nice. Just not happy with the service. It felt more like going out for lunch with

This restaurant was recommended by other visitors and what a great recommendation.
Tea Rooms have finger sandwichs and dessert bites. They had that and more.
Our server was a college student across the road and she made great suggestions and we were rewarded with a great meal.
The tea was great too.
We had outside seating to enjoy the beautiful fall day. I loved when the check was given to us, it was placed in a book, a real novel(Childrens novel)

Went to this charming restaurant for afternoon tea, and had delicious food and a relaxing time! Our party of four girlfriends split the tea sandwiches, a croque Monsieur, and an order of the excellent almond scones, along with a pot of Earl Grey tea. Really lovely. The restaurant is housed in an old pharmacy, and is run by the students of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Just a great place. Can't wait to go back!
