Destination Tea Tip: Upon entering the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center, drive towards the rear, to the strip of shops in the lower parking lot, where you’ll find Café Lapin to your right. You may like to request the pretty banquette tucked into a nook at the back of the restaurant for your tea reservation.
Destination Tea Notes: This French bistro serves a decidedly American afternoon tea menu, until dessert, when the petit fours and macarons make their nod to France. While our waiter wasn’t exactly sure of each item’s description upon presenting our tray, he was friendly, attentive and kept our pots replenished with hot water, enjoining us to be at our leisure. We were also grateful to Café Lapin for allowing us to add a friend to our party the morning of our reserved teatime, which understandably cannot always be accommodated.
