Mary Mac’s Tea Room is a landmark Southern restaurant at 224 Ponce de Leon Avenue near the North Avenue MARTA station. The restaurant opened in 1945 and is the only remaining tea room in the Atlanta area. Plus, there’s made-from-scratch Southern comfort food that will satisfy any appetite.
The restaurant is about a 10-minute walk away from the MARTA station. Take a red or gold line train to North Avenue and follow the signs to the West Peachtree Street exit. At street level, turn right on West Peachtree Street and right again on Ponce de Leon Avenue. Be sure to cross over Ponce toward the Fox Theatre so you’ll end up on the same side of the street as the restaurant (view map).
