Our Food:


Love going here with my daughter for tea and a great soup and sandwich! We sit and have lunch while we catch up on life. One of my favorite places on the square!!


We love coming to this hidden gem for lunch on Sundays mainly because they are not open for breakfast or dinner and they are closed on Tuesdays. The food is made fresh and always delicious. Their sandwiches are unique and range from a grilled Reuben and Panini's to Croissants and Grilled Cheese. They have a few appetizers of which the Bett's Bites is my favorite. It's Pimento cheese melted on pumpernickel topped with crumbled bacon (baked to order so please allow extra time!).
They also have salads and a kids menu and over 30 hot teas and their house blend peach tea is a refreshing change. Their prices are very reasonable and you can usually find a coupon on Restaurant.com for $10 off a purchase of $30 or more (dine in only). The best part is we have never had to wait to be seated which is rather odd considering how good the food is and also if you can get a table at the bay window you can enjoy the view of the beautiful Marietta Square.



I was never really inclined to go here just being a small cafe, but I was pleasantly surprised. They mostly do sandwiches, but they were all unique and healthy. I ordered their grilled cheese sandwich which had 3 different cheeses, bacon, and tomato. I also got a side of sweet potato salad, which was essentially a lighter potato salad. It had less mayo, more texture, and it wasn't overpowering. They also have a nice hot tea selection. I would definitely pick this restaurant over others in Marietta square.


Restaurant is open for lunch hours, private parties, catering (hot food or box lunches). No handicap access due to historic building. Located upstairs. Window dining tables have best view of Marietta Square. Food is delicious...quiche, soups, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, dessert. Gluten free options available. They have some great variations on all their dishes. Owners are friendly and accomodating. Service is good. Prices moderate. Beer and wine available. They also have extensive selection of teas. On the menu you can also choose a full tea (finger sandwiches and desserts) or just dessert tea. Try the coconut bread pudding if you have room for dessert...it's the best! A separate function at this quaint venue is the dinner theater. Only $42.00 for buffet style meal, beverage (charge for wine/beer) and a show. A talented group of local actors perform up close and personal. Dramas, comedies and classics have been on the schedule. Each show is adapted to this small setting and there is not a bad seat in the house. Actors are available after the show to interact with audience members. Very entertaing evening out.


The food here is amazing and the staff is super friendly and inviting. Their chicken
salad croissant sandwich is one of the best around! If you're on the square it's a must try!


Sandwich was very good and the sweet potato salad was awesome. Highly recommend this quaint place. They also serve beer and wine, which is a nice touch. You can sit by the upstairs window and get a great view of the Marietta Square. Quiet place for good conversation.


My wife and I had a great lunch, she had a wonderful fresh salad and I chose the Italian sandwich. We’ve also had their soups over the years. Really quaint place for a good lunch.

We asked for a window seat. They said, sorry none available. They were getting ready for a large group. Then we said, it was our first time there. They opened up the room they were preparing. They seated us in the best seats, by the window that overlooked the square. We both ordered the chicken salad sandwich and different sides. Had I known how good it was, I would have ordered 2. My tongue slapped my lips so hard, I think I knocked a tooth loose. LOL. They make their chicken salad fresh served on warm croissants. When I learned they sell it by the pound I was hoping to take some home. Unfortunately for me, because of the demand that day, there was none available for sale but they recommended I call 2 days in advance. Can you tell I really like this place. Guys if you want or need to make a deposit in your Wife Bank, this is it

Great atmosphere, superb tea selection. Good music. Gluten free options that taste good! Good view of the square. Reasonable pricesThis place is incredible for lunch! The people are GREAT....
However, if you haven't checked out one of their dinners and a play, you're really missing out on a treat!!!! The actors are professionals and the food is delish as always!!!!

Had the Chicken Salad sandwich on a croissant and Greek Pasta Salad with an icy cold peach tea at The Vineyard Cafe today! Extremely good!

Went with my daughter for lunch Sunday. Our male server was the bomb! He made us feel like we were family. My daughter, going thru a tough time, had a meltdown during our conversation. He saw that she was quietly crying and brought her a free dessert. Our food was wonderful (chicken salad) and the peach tea divine. Bread pudding for dessert was perfect. Love this place and it will continue to be one of my favs.

We come here almost every weekend to have the delicious chicken salad. The staff is fantastic and always make us feel welcome. Cannot stop talking about how good everything is, but definitely try the cafe croissant, sweet peach tea, and bread pudding!

This was so good! I just had lunch with the full tea and it was absolutely delicious! My only complaint: I got full and still had a scone and cookie I hadn't sampled! Travesty because I just know they would have been fantastic! I will be back for more for sure!!!

It was amazing. The staff was so friendly. I took my family from Montana for a true Southern Hospitality experience. I was impressed with the level of service and quality of food.

My sister and I were looking for a quaint spot to get some lunch and just happened to find this place. Best decision we could have made. Great atmosphere, wonderful service and the food was delicious!!! And you must try their signature Peach Iced Tea, it was divine!

The eggplant panini was fantastic! I had it with the Tomato Basil soup of the day. I never eat dessert, but we had the sampler and loved it!

Our Dinner Theatre:


It was great! We went for “A Greater Tuna” as my wife and her family love “A Tuna Christmas” which will be here at Christmas this year! Two actors playing several characters each with costume and voice changes to match. The dinner prior was classic southern comfort food served buffet style. Choice of a salad, two sides, two entrees, and two desserts. We’ll definitely be back! Keep art alive!

Had a great dinner, bonus-gluten free, and laughed the rest of the night during Greater Tuna. What a talented cast. I have gone to plays at twice the cost, which didn't include dinner, and had a quarter of the fun. Can't wait to go again.


We went to the dinner theater to see “A Greater Tuna”. The play was very funny and entertaining and the acting was amazing – 2 actors playing around 20 parts. We enjoyed the meal which I would describe as comfort food with some creativity added in. I am careful with my diet and was able to choose items that worked for me. It’s a small buffet but 2 choices of entrees plus a salad and several sides and dessert with gluten free options as well. The owners are there cooking and serving and have done a lot to make the whole experience special. This small dinner theater setting makes for a very enjoyable evening. We have been to the dinner theater a number of times before and also frequently for lunch and highly recommend both.



I wish I could give more than five stars for the unbelievable evening I just shared with my family!  We came for the dinner theater to see Driving Miss Daisy. From the beginning we were all blown away - great customer service, AMAZING food + to top it off, an extremely realistic and entertaining rendition of Driving Miss Daisy. I'd highly suggest coming here for an intimate evening with your significant other, friends or family. We'll for sure be back to see Steel Magnolias.

Four friends and I went to the dinner theater here last night and had a WONDERFUL time! We enjoyed a great buffet dinner. The food was delicious. Then we were treated to a play of Steel Magnolias. The play was fantastic and the performers were so talented and pulled me into the story immediately. Even though I have seen the movie of Steel Magnolias numerous times this was still such a refreshing version as the actors made each character their own. I was so thoroughly entertained! The owners were very welcoming and made sure that everyone had a good time. I will most definitely be going again!

We had a BLAST!! We’ve been talking about it all morning!! Can’t wait to see what the next show is!

We had the pleasure of being invited to The Vineyard Cafe on 8/22 to enjoy wonderful food and photograph a brilliant production of Robert Harling's "Steel Magnolias" directed by Tony Smithey. The Vineyard Cafe, located above Tiny Bubbles Tea Bar and Gift Shop in historic Marietta Square, is reviving dinner theater!! The next show is "The Bird Cage".

What a treasure trove of favorite things - sweet people oozing southern hospitality , scrumptious food and plenty of it, historic building on the Square in Marietta, and brilliantly talented actors evoking laughter through tears! Perfection!

My boyfriend and I attended Opening Night and were delighted with the production and acting. This was a wonderful evening with dinner and the play. We had such a great time. We found the actors to be accomplished and very approachable afterwards taking pictures with the audience members. Highly recommended!!!

Our Event Space:

I just wanted to say our Tea Bridal Shower was a great success!! You guys really did a wonderful job!! I cannot rave enough on how special you made this for the bride to be, me and all the other ladies that attended. Everything was wonderful and the food was amazing. I and all the other ladies highly recommend The Vineyard café for any special event.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did! 


I could not be more happy with our venue. My husband and I fell in love with the Vineyard Cafe a year before our actual wedding, down to the very day. The cafe has the most beautiful view of the Marietta Square, the best food, and the sweetest waitstaff. I really mean it when I say, everything about the Vineyard Cafe is charming. When we first discovered the cafe, my husband and I had already booked a wedding venue, so it never occurred to us at the time that we might have our wedding at the cafe. It wasn't until we were a couple months away from our wedding date and our previous venue and catering (Coast 2 Coast who was suggested by our venue The Fainting Goat Vineyard) started fighting. That story is for a different review, but needless to say, we were left without a venue or catering four months out from our date. Thankfully my husband and I knew a place that we both loved, and so we used The Vineyard Cafe, and I could not be more happy about it. The wedding was beautiful and intimate, and I could relax and know that the lovely people at The Vineyard Cafe had me covered.


We had the pleasure of hosting a bridal shower at The Vineyard Cafe this weekend. I would give a rating of 10 stars if I could! Betty and all the ladies were a dream to work with and bent over backwards to make our day super special. I had to plan this event long distance so I was nervous about the details. Betty answered every question and took care of every detail. I had cupcakes delivered from Mamie’s and set the room up in a Lilly theme. Every aspect of the planning and executing went perfectly. Everyone raved about the food! The private party room was set up beautifully. This is now my go to place in Atlanta for all my special events. What a treasure The Vineyard Cafe is!Great place.

My daughter hosted a bridal shower there. It was great food, great service, and a beautiful room for an event. I highly recommend it. I plan to visit again soon.
