Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern Comfort Food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-sourced, and always Southern.
Although our patio is available for dining year round, please note we do not have heaters.

We Have Proudly Served Fresh, Made-from-scratch and "Forever Free" Food for over 20 Years: We started as a scratch-made, farm to table restaurant in Asheville, NC in 2000 because we believed food should be good for our guests and for the planet. Today, forever free means the majority of our proteins were raised without antibiotics or hormones. We thoughtfully source ingredients like sustainably-farmed fish, wild-caught shrimp and regionally-sourced wheat and corn from century-old family mills

I ordered the eggs Benedict with the guacamole and feta. The guacamole was brown which ruined the flavor of the whole dish. I did not want to cause a scene or send back as I was with a good friend. My friend had the chicken and waffles and ate everything, said it was fantastic. I was so looking forward to our brunch and left hungry and disappointed.

Every bite was delicious and full of great flavor. We had the chili-lime chicken and the bourbon-pepper meatloaf. Both were exceptionally tasty. The variety of sides is amazing and makes it hard to choose just two of them. I am always pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices are for this good food!

The ambiance is awesome and it was not too crowded. Kyle, the Manager, was my server and he is phenomenal. He remembers guests from previous visits and his customer service is outstanding. He makes everyone feel like they are the only person or group in restaurant. I eat at Tupelo Honey at least twice a month and it is a treat! Kudos to Tupelo Honey South Asheville Team!

Unfortunately, there was nothing good or memorable about it so we won’t be back. We travel and eat out a lot. The coffee was so acidic to start with. The Sriracha waffles had sauce poured all over them and they were so hot my mouth was on fire and the waffles were so tough. Then they brought plain chicken and waffles and the breading had absolutely no taste, not much meat at all…more breading and only tough dark meat. The second time the waffles were at least hot and you could cut them with your fork. My husband’s breakfast bowl came cold and the cheese did not even melt. Service at the bar area was poor to none. It was Mother’s Day and I was so looking forward to going there since we had been to the one in Greenville and it was great. I just flew in from Florida and had made reservations…SO DISAPPOINTING for $40+.

We sat outside on the patio and could bring our dog with us which was extra special. The food was really good and the menu was extensive for brunch. My only complaint was that the service was slow. Started off good, but then had to wait awhile to order and constantly look for our waiter to order drinks, refills and for a missing entre.

She cut me off while talking and didn’t have any personality what’s so ever. Just plain rude as I tried to speak with her while being seated. Not one smile or nod. Did not check up on us at any point. Our waitress was fantastic! I’ve previously been to the downtown location and everyone there was over accommodating and made our first time experience phenomenal. The South Asheville location was great the food was so yummy and our waitress made everything tiptop. But the manager at the South location just needs to find a different profession. I’ll probably never visit the South location because of that but definitely will check out downtown always.

Took too long to get a beer, but the server made it up with free biscuits. And those are amazing biscuits! The downtown location is ridiculously busy, but the other location was not, and the ambiance was beautiful.
