Dark wood floors, muted yellow walls, bistro tables topped with flowers and additional sidewalk seating give this eatery upscale appeal. The kitchen serves tantalizing breakfasts such as New Orleans-style French toast, sweet potato pancakes and omelets with complimentary hot biscuits all day. Dinner options include shrimp and grits, nutty fried chicken with mashed sweet potatoes, and a veggie plate that might include organic honey-glazed carrots, marinated grilled tofu or candied ginger cornbread with peanut butter. Asheville has a great Saturday and Sunday morning brunch scene, and this is definitely an area favorite thanks to the breakfast pies people will line down the street for. Tupelo has another location in Asheville's south side but it doesn't have the same vibe as the downtown locale.
- Best Restaurants: "Tupelo Honey Café is right across the street from Pritchard Park where hundreds gather every Friday night for the Asheville Drum Circle. If you can snag a patio table at Tupelo that evening, you're in for a heart-thumping, toe tapping musical treat you'll never forget."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Tupelo Honey Café, which opened in downtown Asheville in 2000, now has additional locations in Asheville, Raleigh, Charlotte and beyond. Obviously, they're doing something right.
