We usually stop in here to eat when we come to Asheville. Seems like there has been a price jump on the menu and is too much for the quality. Food is good and made in kitchen visible to all customers. Nice atmosphere but tables are very, very close together. Will return again.

Definitely a good place to eat but no exceptional. Quaint little place. I ordered a beet salad but the beets were tiny diced bits in a lot of greens. It was good for homemade, but I expected more beets. The sweet potato pancake with fried chicken is innovative and the best thing at our table. Pork Cheeks have sort of... More

I have eaten at Tupelo Honey in both Asheville locations. They have a wonderful menu with different offerings. You may have to wait for it is very popular. If visiting Asheville for the first time, Tupelo Honey is a great restaurant to they.

This place was such an amazing experience. The menu is peppered with southern classics, but will please any taste palette! Out server Nico was attentive and charming; out coffee never ran out! Even if you are in Asheville a short time, this is a must!

This is the second time I had eaten there. Took my husband and he enjoyed it as much as I had previously. Would go again if in Ashville.

Warm servers and you get a biscuit with whatever you order! I got the biscuits and gravy and it was so huge I had to save it for later. Perfect brunch. I will be back!

Me and my mom love this place! We stopped on our way in to shake off the road dust and get a quick bite. It was so wonderful we ended up eating here again during our trip. Highly recommend the chicken and waffle. To die for! Definitely can split, but well worth the leftovers!

Visiting Tupelo Honey Cafe was a recommendation from a friend! I was so happy I took my friends advice and went during a business trip to Asheville! The atmosphere was welcoming! I sat on a stool at the bar! The bar tender was fabulous and she made a few recommendations! I chose the shrimp and grits and they were very... More

We went in for brunch on a girls' Bachelorette party weekend. One of the girls we were with had raved about the place and she is the reason we went. We were glad we did until she ordered a drink served in the moscow mule mug that has the restaurant's name on it. She loves the place so much, that... More

Our Southern dishes and libations are served with a creative twist and a smile, and we serve our guests nothing that we wouldn't want on our own supper table. When we play with our food (and we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, and our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling and frying, canning and preserving, and utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.
