Tupelo Honey Cafe

Fluent Flavor Spoken Here

One of the premier restaurants in Asheville has recently expanded to the other side of the mountains.  Tupelo Honey Cafe strives to take southern cuisine to the next level.  They take the traditional and the extremely southern, you know soul food, and they turn it on ts head and put their own spin on it.  The original location in Asheville expanded there to a second location.  Now, with the new location in Knoxville, Tupelo Honey Cafe is bringing their take on southern tradition to the next level.

Their menu reads like a Sunday dinner at your grandmothers house… but different.  They take those comfort foods from our youth and make them their own.  Cheesy Grit Cakes, Appalachian Egg Rolls and Homemade Pimento & Cheese are on tap for the starters.  If you are looking for a good sandwich then you can sink your teeth into When Shrimp Met Taco, Southern Fried Chicken BLT or a Grateful Dead Black Bean Burger.  Their menu items cover everyone’s taste.  From those in your group that live a vegetarian lifestyle to those that want BBQ, there is something for everybody.  And part of the something for everybody includes their selection of Main Courses.  Shrimp and Grits, Chorizo-Crusted Colossal Sea Scallops with Basil Cream Sauce and a BBQ plate.  Go look at their menu online and you will feel your mouth start to water.

And now, because dessert is as southern as…well as apple pie, let’s look at their desserts.

  • Brown Butter Pecan Pie with Vanilla Bean and Caramel Sauce
  • Honeybee Apple Pie
  • Naked Chocolate Cake a La Mode
  • Banana Pudding
  • Blueberry Hill Thrill Cream Cheese Pie
  • Old Fashioned Soda Parlor Float
One thing that has become a part of our culinary choices is a gluten free menu and the gluten free menu at Tupelo Honey Cafe is terrific.  Full of flavor and wonderful, the gluten free menu is extensive and gives the choice of southern favorites without gluten but with all of the flavor.
