Where Culinary Magic Unites

Restaurant, Bakery, Afternoon Tea

Nestled in the heart of Cumming City Center, Mary Lucille’s is more than just a dining spot; it’s a culinary hotspot where the charm of a bakery, the excellence of a restaurant, and the grace of an afternoon tearoom come together seamlessly.

Here, we’ve blended these unique experiences to offer a haven for food lovers.

Whether you stop in to dine with us, grab a treat or two from the bakery, or enjoy the fine offerings at our full-service bar, we’re sure you’ll find something to savor and keep coming back for more!



Elevating Southern Cuisine

Our restaurant extends a heartfelt invitation, presenting a menu filled with handcrafted Southern dishes that pay homage to the region’s culinary essence.

Our offerings showcase a refined twist on beloved homestyle classics, celebrating the deep-rooted cuisine of the South.

The menu changes seasonally, as we strive to work with local producers using the freshest ingredients. We hand-season and roast our own meats, we clean and cut our own produce, our sauces and syrups are in-house recipes.

Be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner each plate is prepared from scratch with love and pride, from our kitchen to your table.

We welcome walk-ins at any time and will seat you according to table availability. If you prefer, phone us for our call-ahead seating service to reduce your waiting time on arrival.


Where Sweet Dreams Take Shape

Our onsite scratch bakery hand-makes all our decadent pastries, sweet treats, and scrumptious pies & cakes.

We also offer breads, muffins, baked fresh and featured in our restaurant. Mary Lucille’s cinnamon rolls are a legend!

Our selection changes daily, even by the hour! So pop in often to see what goodies just came out the oven.


We can accommodate custom orders and many dietary restrictions, just give us a call or drop an email with a few days of notice and our bakery team will be honored to work with you.
