The Potted Geranium is perfect for friends and family to have a quiet, elegant lunch together in a beautiful setting. The tea room offers a long list of teas...beautifully served to each person at the table. The currant scones were the best I have ever had....I even bought a mix that the tea room offers in the gift shop. I could not have asked for a lovelier place to be taken for my birthday!!!!!

Just returned home to Atlanta after celebrating the birthdays of two family members at The Potted Geranium. With a lovely setting inside and tables spaced for quiet conversation and views of the beautiful grounds, our lunch selections (including our choices of Earl Grey and Orange Spice as hot teas), and desserts were prepared and served beautifully--no detail was overlooked! Each of us is looking forward to returning soon and sharing this exceptional tea room with more friends and family members!

My only regret is that I didn't go here as soon as it opened! I waited until friends made plans for us to go. Since my first trip I have taken every visitor who comes to town & have gone back with friends. My visitors say it is a favorite memory. They have a wonderful choice of teas, beautifully presented. The Victorian house is lovingly preserved. The food is excellent with a delicious choice of desserts which are made on sight. I love the scones!!!

As part of our trip to The Carolina's and Georgia, my husband and I traveled from Washington State to experience the joys of taking tea at The Potted Geramium. I had read about the tea house in Teatime Magazine shortly before leaving on vacation to the area. We adjusted previous plans to include The Potted Geranium. The miles traveled were well worth it because it was one of the most delightful experiences of our trip. The atmosphere was both inviting and calming with peaceful music playing softly in the background. We enjoyed The Dutchess of Bedford tea which was absolutely amazing from first bite to last. The Quiche melted in our mouths with our taste buds bursting with delicious flavors. The salad with fresh field greens, cranberries, pecans and goat cheese was refreshing and unb... (more)

My daughter and I traveled from Sharpsburg, GA hoping our 2 hr trip to the Potted Geranium would be worth the miles. It was indeed! We were welcomed in with smiles and served to the nines. The food was AMAZING!!! Laura even gave us a tour of the house and shared the history as we walked. Can't wait to bring my friends back!

Exquisite! Excellent variety of teas; my favorite was the Rose tea. It was delicious and so aromatic! Food preparation and presentation was impeccable and taste was scrumptious; quiche, salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing and creme puff were among my favs. Beautifully decorated with an extremely calm, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. The owner is very cordial and treated us like royalty! Well worth the +90 minute trip. My cousins and I will definitely return! If you enjoy tea rooms, you must experience The Potted Geranium. You will not be disappointed.

On December 3rd I chose to celebrate my special occasion at the Potted Geranium with the ladies I hold near and dear to my heart, my mother, sister and best friend. The staff at the Potted Geranium made this a memorable celebration. My hosts and I had the Duchess of Bedford full afternoon tea service.

We enjoyed the Georgia Peaches and Cream tea, Cochin Masala Chai, Hazelnut Vanilla tea, and the Strawberry Kiwi tea. Each teapot had an adorable cozy complimenting the eclectic mix of Victorian china surrounding the tiered server centerpiece. Our table was set with the proper accoutrements for this elegant tea. The quality of the food was matched by the quality of the service. The food was fresh, tasty and a feast for our eyes as well as our appetites. The staff was friendly and ver... (more)

My dear friend and I spent wonderful luncheon interlude with these ladies on November 20.The tearoom is an absolutely lovely Victorian house, the food very tasty and the presentation flawlessly elegant. We were treated as very special guests. When the time came we made a reluctant departure, but not before browsing in the gift shop. It has a good variety of tea accessories and their specialty teas. We came from Macon and Warner Robins and it was well worth the trip.

The Potted Geranium was featured in Georgia's Lake Country flyer. A friend decided that we should treat another friend to a birthday lunch there. The best choice we could have ever made. The tea selection was beyond believe and served in beautiful pots. The décor was magnificent. It was a very calm setting that allowed you to relax and enjoy the food, friends, and atmosphere. We chose the tea, Peaches and Cream - Wonderful some of the best that I have ever had. The special of the day was salmon patties and spinach salad. The food and presentation was outstanding. And the dessert - melt in your mouth peach cobbler. The staff was kind enough to present our friend with a candle in her dessert as well as a Happy Birthday song. Even the chef came out to join - what a wonderful experience. Would recommend to everyone and we will certainly return again.

My husband and I celebrated our 38th anniversary this afternoon having tea at The Potted Geranium. This was our 4th visit. We were greeted with the smell of sweet mini Gardenias growing near the entry way. As always, the attention to detail (outdoors & in) made for another memorable experience. We adore the fine English china, linen napkins with detailed cutwork, delicious food, delicate treats, with incredible presentation surrounded by decor that never fails to entice and delight us, while making us feel just a tad bit British! We travel almost 2 hrs to have “The Duchess of Bedford” Tea Service. A visit to The Potted Geranium is worth the drive from anywhere.

My daughters surprised me for Mothers Day at The Potted Geranium and it was wonderful. When you arrive it feels like another place in time. You relax and enjoy being pampered. Food was excellent, service friendly and welcoming and time stood still!
I enjoyed my visit so much that three days later I brought three of my friends to celebrate a retiree and they were just as impressed as I.
Home is beautiful with everything authentic and gardens worth taking time to visit. Hope they continue to be successful because I will be returning.
Again thank you for a wonderful experience.

What a lovely experience my guest and I had at The Potted Geranium. I had the apricot tea and a delicious turkey salad on a very fresh homemade croissant. My guest had another tea and chicken salad on croissant and a delectable puffed pastry with real custard. I certainly will return again. The gardens surrounding the home were lovely. The owner proudly took us on a tour of the restored home. What a treat. What a labor of love has been poured into every detail of the home. It is a must see and experience. Very relaxing. My friend found some lovely gifts to take back to Virginia from the gift shop.

What a delightful experience!! I learned about this wonderful tea room from a 'Georgia Treasures Along I-20 brochure that I picked up at the Georgia Welcome Center. My first visit certainly will become one of many. We loved it.....the decor, the food, the service are all first rate. I had the 'sampler' lunch and thought it was a great choice. I look forward to going again when I can spend more time wandering through the house and the beautifully landscaped yard. It's obvious that the owners give a lot of attention to every detail to make your visit a special experience.
