Although an important aspect of Dr. Bombay's is that their profits help support The Learning Tea, a project to cultivate education for young women in India, it's also a great place to go if you want a quiet visit with a friend or spend time with a book and a cuppa.
The interior is eclectic as the shop's name: two rooms (seems like more) with book-lined walls, an old piano, sofas, easy chairs, old wooden tables & chairs, booths, dozens of displayed teapots, painted oriental umbrellas, and paintings found in someone's attic. The front windows allow plenty of natural light - very cozy. Seating for various needs is plentiful. They frequently host little girl parties and showers.
The food is okay - not great, but not bad. The tea selection is good, but they use tea bags! Other drinks are offered: coffees, soy drinks, juices, etc. on the days I have visited. The Vegan food offerings are a nice touch. Their broad selection of sweets are general quite good. I luv the oatmeal raisin cookies.
The service is minimal, but friendly and efficient. Personally, if I were planning an English Tea, I would make a reservation at The Ritz Carlton because of the quality of their china, provisions and service. Although I usually order tea at Dr. Bombay's, it's more like how I would have it at my or a friend's home - cozy and a little eclectic.

Dr. Bombay's gets everything right. Great high tea. Great tea in general. Great atmosphere. One of the true jems in the city.

We had high tea, so it was a bit pricier than a normal visit - but WORTH IT!

This cozy little tea house (located in Candler Park) has the comfort of your Grandma's Living Room and the charm of Days Gone By. Even the music takes you back in time!!! Filled with books, you can relax with a paperback or your laptop, enjoy a quick bite with friends or do the ceremonial High Tea. Great Place for a 'Ladies Day Out' :)

My husband and I had been planning on going for a high Tea experience for a very long time.
today it was as if all the stars were aligned just right, so that we could experience and thoroughly enjoy our high tea.
We found Dr. Bombay while searching the web, and decided to go there at 4pm.. we were lucky to find parking right outside the store..the staff was very helpful and gave a lot of information on the food the charity they support etc.
The scones and clotted cream are absolutely great. the sandwiches and all the savory items were very tasty and well presented. Rates are very reasonable.
We will definitely be frequent visitors to this place.
