About Tupelo Honey Cafe

Since opening in downtown Asheville, N.C. in 2000, Tupelo Honey Cafe has become one of the most beloved restaurants in the Southeast, officials said. The award-winning restaurant’s casual, colorful and whimsical atmosphere and farm-to-fork New South cuisine have grown in popularity, spurring additional locations and a nationally distributed Tupelo Honey Cafe cookbook. A second cookbook is due in the spring of 2014. Owner Steve Frabitore opened a second Asheville location in 2010 and the first out-of-market restaurants in Knoxville in late 2012 and in Greenville, S.C. earlier this year. The company will open a Charlotte, N.C. location in December and a Johnson City, Tenn. location in 2014. For more information, visit www.tupelohoneycafe.com.
