John Ferrell purchased Mary Mac's Tea Room in 1994 from the original owner. Margaret Lupo handpicked Ferrell to share her historic business and recipes, and her vast knowledge of down-home Southern food. Ferrell has expanded the business while still maintaining the beloved traditions of "Atlanta's Dining Room."
Mary Mac's Tea Room has been serving up classic Southern comfort food to the people of Atlanta, Georgia, since opening in 1945. The last of the city's old Southern tea rooms, Mary Mac's thrives today, serving more than 1,000 customers every day.
