Destination Tea Tips: Look up! Enter via the (separately owned) Tiny Bubbles Tea Bar and Gift Shop and walk to the back of the gift shop to find the stairs to Vineyard Cafe. Request a window seat when you reserve to get the full effect of tea on the square. If parking on the square is full, head to the free public lot on Mill Street between the tracks and North Marietta Parkway, and it’s a short jaunt to Vineyard Cafe.

Destination Tea Notes: Having recently come under the ownership of hostess Penny Brand, Vineyard Cafe offers homemade lunch fare with healthy leanings. Though truly, while you are perched in their second floor dining rooms overlooking historic Marietta Square, how can you not complete the picture by enjoying the tradition of afternoon tea? Because they bake onsite, if you are with two or three friends strolling through the square, you can pop in on a whim for your afternoon tea without reservations, or if you are tempted (and voracious), choose to augment your tea with items from their lunch menu. You may also reserve Vineyard Cafe dining rooms during and after business hours for private parties or catch a local production at their new dinner theater.
