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.
Sunny Point Cafe knows how to make a biscuit! Be prepared for a lengthy wait (we have a party of 6 and waited 90 minutes), but they warn you in advance that it'll take a while. While waiting, there is coffee and water available as well as live music and a garden to walk through. This made the wait much more bearable. Once we got seated, the food was well worth it! When a restaurant does breakfast right, people take notice. I would absolutely recommend if you're not on a tight schedule!
I ordered the chicken pot pie...It was more like soup,flavor was okay but the potatoes & carrots were as big around as a small pea w/dark meat mostly liquid w/no vegetables...yuk. Definitely overpriced and my husband ordered chicken, grease needs to be changed. Potato salad very bland...Very pricey for quality of food.
We stopped by here twice while on vacation and really loved the quaint feel of the town as well as the good food. The wait was short and the staff was easy to work with. We will definitely stop by the next time we are in the area.
Stop in today and had the biggest breakfast bowl I have ever seen. Could not even finish it. Great home feel and friendly people. Will definitely have to come back and check out the lunch and dinner.
I was informed about this place by a friend. I was very pleased with our experience there. Was in Asheville for a week and came here 4 times during the trip. Their breakfast is a must!!!!
The chicken is delicious, just the right amount of spice. The side are just as tasty, Mac and cheese and fried okra every time! Great service as well. Never get tired of eating here.
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!
5 stars all the way the most unique resturant my husband and I have ever eaten at. They're own discription says it all. Try it you be hooked,we sure are.
