Background: Tupelo Honey, located in the center of Warehouse Row, is "a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina mountains we call home. Our recipes are simply crafted and made from scratch with responsibly sourced ingredients that bring the best of every season. For 20 years, we have infused our Southern spirit into every bite.”
First Impressions: As soon as you walk in the door Tupelo Honey is inviting and bright with cheerful staff and the smell of biscuits filling the space.
I loved the honey decor and inviting colors. True to the rest of the buildings around it, Tupelo Honey is trendy without acknowledging the rustic history of the city.
Food: One word: biscuits. I can’t tell you how many biscuits I have had since I moved to the South but I can tell you these were by far the best biscuits. With almost a scone consistency they pair great with the blueberry jam. Grandma enjoyed their Southern Chicken BLT but felt their peach slaw was not sweet enough. I don’t have a high tolerance for spicy food but I love it. So sweaty and smiling I ate almost all my sriracha, honey fried chicken and waffles.
Overall: Tupelo Honey does exactly what they set out to do, breathe life into the traditional Southern recipes we all love. They have lots of locations all over the country where you can pop in, get a warm welcome, and enjoy a fluffy biscuit.
