All of my favorite things in one place: The Avett Brothers playing on the speakers, goat cheese in the grits, mimosas, and food so good that I literally did a Happy Dance in my chair. The glee of the moment, tastes, sounds and smells overtook me. I couldn’t help it. For years we have tried to get into to Tupelo Honey, but were always dissuaded by the long wait times. We got there on a Friday morning around ten this time, and only had to wait for about fifteen minutes. Every second was worth it; now I understand why it is always packed. Every. Single. Bite. Was. Delectable. It is kid-friendly, gluten-free friendly, vegetarian and carnivore friendly, locally grown and scratch-made perfection. I didn’t want to ever leave. I could live forever on the Appalachian Eggrolls and the Breakfast Bowl, and I was sad I didn’t have space in my gluttonous gut for the Sweet Potato Pancakes. I hear there is another location on the Southside of Asheville that takes reservations, but if you prefer the original, they do offer call ahead seating. I have never seen Tupelo Honey lacking a wait time, though, and now I understand why. It is potentially the best breakfast I have had in years.
Tupelo Honey Cafe is one of the best places to eat in Asheville. Be prepared to wait, but trust me its worth the wait. Grab some coffee and get ready to eat good eats!
"So good... Can i please have a gallon of the Frozen Chai [well blended] with a straw! " ... The perfect treat! An Artsy Ashevillian atmosphere
