Unwelcoming was the first word that came to mind as we waited to be seated at the Faded Rose. Cluttered and crowded were the second and third. Too many tables, serving stations, and "antiques" to be comfortable while waiting. The Christmas decorations were still up in the room where we were seated(in mid February). We ordered the 'light tea' and were snapped at by the owner's daughter that we had to have a reservation for that particular item. When I commented that it was not anywhere on the menu that a reservation was required, she said "It's on the website!" Come on! A reservation for tea at a tea house?? You gotta be kidding. And how often do you check a restaurant's website before placing an order? Even when I told them I was planning a birthday event, the mood did not change. Our order was woefully short of items. No scones, no teacakes, no muffins, one(seriously, one) cucumber sandwich, no 'eclectic' tea sandwiches... a pitiful selection for 18.95. The lemon curd and clotted cream were in thimble-sized containers. Three hot, single-bite items and a small chicken salad rollup were added to grapes, two chocolate truffles, two petit fours, one cupcake, and a couple of cookies for our order. I will say I saw much bigger servings going on around us, but I also heard the waiter say the people in the next room found a hair in the chicken salad. The single bathroom was a disaster with a broken sink - literally. It was sloppily pieced together with a big hole in the middle. The one bright spot was our waiter who was very professional and personable. Everyone else there could take a lesson from his attitude and level of service. Needless to say, I will not be taking my mom's party guests to this overblown, underdone location.

The Faded Rose Tea Garden & Restaurant is located in historic Chamblee, Georgia and Antique Row just a few minute's drive from downtown and midtown Atlanta. The house was built in 1882 and is on the national historic registry. This beautiful home is an idyllic setting for enjoying a relaxing meal with friends, family or business clients. It is an eclectic fusion of traditional Southern tea room cuisine with imaginitive culinary creations for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and special events. Reservations are recommended but not required at The Faded Rose. It is a world apart here. Leave the hustle and bustle of urban Atlanta behind as you step into a bygone era. The Faded Rose is an oasis of calm, gentility and impeccable service. Helpful waiters and waitresses knowledgable about teas and tea culture. Chefs schooled in traditional fine dining and tea service, as well as their own imaginative culinary creations. In my opinion, The Faded Rose's Afternoon Tea Service has no equal in the Atlanta metro area or Georgia. The Faded Rose serves more than 50 teas from around the world that are brewed fresh daily. Herbal, fruit and traditional loose leaf teas. Savory hot teas and fruity sweet and unsweetened iced teas that are simply addictive! My favorites are the Tropical Blend, Peach and Apricot iced teas. All of the Faded Rose teas are available for purchase to take home with you. Daily specials are offered along with perennial favorites such as pecan encrusted brook trout, Salmon, blackened Mahi-Mahi, Southern fried chicken, berry muffins, garlic mashed potatoes, crab cakes, Chicken Picatta, Creme Brulee', Caesar Salad and many more delectable tastes. Fresh scones, rosemary muffins, lemon curd, tea sandwiches, clotted cream and eclectic tea sandwiches are just some of the unique specialities which are all made fresh daily at The Faded Rose and are served with a European flair. All sauces and salad dressings, baked goods and signature dishes are made from scratch. Owner Jeanne Lord has a thriving catering business as well for church gatherings, wedding receptions, teas and luncheons for bridal and baby showers, bridesmaid luncheons and teas, birthday parties, tea parties for little girls, Red Hat lunches and other special events. You will find here a quaint mix of old and new. This former railroad train master's house sits across the street from the old Chamblee Railroad Depot and a busy train yard. It is interesting to watch the train crews change shifts and move trains back and forth. A special train themed dining room showcases rare model trains, railroad menus, signs and railroad china from the days when you could eat a fine meal while traveling on across the country on the rails in style. Other Faded Rose dining rooms include a sun porch and several elegant rooms where antique silverware and china place settings evoke a time when Southern ladies wore fancy hats and elbow-length gloves to lunch and afternoon tea. And some customers do just that even today. Local Red Hat Ladies groups are regular luncheon and afternoon tea customers at The Faded Rose. The interesting interior decor at The Faded Rose is also for sale ... antique teacups, teapots and fine china, Victorian furniture, vintage purses, ladies hats, whimsical hand-embroidered shirts and much more are displayed in the historic dining rooms as well as at the Faded Rose Antiques and Gift Shoppe just a few blocks away. The Faded Rose features vintage European china, Crabtree and Evelyn, Trapp candles, Boyd's plush and resin bears, Demdaco Willow Tree Angels, Faded Rose jams, jellies and other foods and fine work from local artisans. There is also a beautiful herb and flower garden surrounding the restaurant. Ample off-street parking. The Faded Rose is only a short walk to MARTA trains at the Chamblee Station and the many interesting antique stores and businesses in the Chamblee Antique Row shopping district. A short drive from The Faded Rose are downtown Atlanta, midtown, trendy Buckhead, the fashionable Lenox and Phipps Plaza shopping malls, Emory and Oglethrope Universites and the International Village along Buford Highway. As a comfortable and unique place to unwind, eat well and be pampered, Faded Rose Tea Garden & Restaurant is unequaled.
