This is a great place for a date to just sit and talk. The Gyros are the best in Columbia and made from real meat, not the thinly sliced processed crap you usually get everywhere else.

I've been eating at the Mediterranean Tea Room for years, and it still remains my absolute favorite lunch place in all of Columbia! The place really is kind of a hole in the wall, but the food is spectacular! The service is good, but they...More
