The Potted Geranium – Greensboro
The Queen Mary luncheon plate, Orange Spice tea, and jam & Devon Cream

The Queen Mary luncheon plate, Orange Spice tea, and jam & Devon Cream

It was a couple Wednesdays ago at 1:30pm; and, we were going through Greensboro up to Athens. And we were starving. Lo & behold, we were in luck. The Potted Geranium serves until 3pm.

A smiling staff welcomed us with opened arms into the bright, spotless parlor. Atlanta pianist Jim Gibson‘s music on CD played in the background. The table linens, the decor, even the crystal chandelier, were perfect. When the hostess offered Cranberry Champagne, it sounded exactly right. And it was!

Prices include the luncheon plate and a pot of tea – guest’s choice. 21 choices were on the menu the day we were there. I had the Orange Spice; my companion (fancy way of saying Bill Ronay), French¬† Caramel.

I had The Queen Mary, a scoop of oven roasted breast of turkey salad served with a Tuscan garden salad, and a currant scone. All were fresh, flavorful and ideally prepared.

My companion had the chicken pot pie special (a lovely individual sized portion) with a salad and currant scone.

We cleaned our plates as well as the jam and double cream crystal containers.

The Potted Geranium is rated the #1 tea room in Georgia by The best way for you to see if you agree is to visit. Do so at your first opportunity!
