"Equally adept at fueling State Street-bound shoppers is Tupelo Junction Cafe...the restaurant is true to the funky, beachy side of the town's personality: Mimosas come in mason jars, the coffee mugs are country-style crockery, and the walls display fruit-crate labels as artwork.The menu is packed with southern-influenced dishes like apple cinnamon beignets; a pulled-pork sloppy joe; or Amy's own favorite, a sprightly salad of lettuce, fried chicken, corn-bread croutons, and buttermilk dressing."
Too bad the other diners here had unhappy experiences. I have had some uneven times here with service but those have been rare and the food has always been tip top. I have taken many friends here over the years, including those who have traveled the world. They love it!
I'm not sure how this place gets such amazing reviews! The idea is cute, the location and atmosphere is splendid but the food is simply ok. If they knocked off about $5 off each item I'd say the food was outstanding but for the money I have to pay I expect a little more. The service was good!
The menu was interesting to contemplate and the food delicious. We got in early and had no trouble getting a table on a Saturday yet. In no time, there was a serious wait and we felt sorry for those looking over our table as we wanted to linger over our meal. Service left a little to be desired as we had to track down a server more than once to get more coffee or juice. When the food came, everything was forgiven. Definitely a comeback place.
This absolutely my favorite SB restaurant for imaginative Southern Cooking! The Chicken Andouile Hash is to die for! Especially nice for late Sunday Brunch seated on one of the sidewalk tables. The Crab Cakes are also right on the money and the best I've had since moving back here 5 years ago from Seattle. To frost the cake the service is very attentive...always a truly delightful culinary SB experience! Highly recommended.
The breakfasts are amazing! The vanilla dipped french toast with fresh berry sauce is out of this world. Dinner isn't the best around but has some intersting selections.
Service can be slow at popular eating times. Noise level is also a factor if you are looking for a quiet venue. If you haven't been for breakfast, it is a MUST!
This is a new restaurant which we visited for my 30th birthday. I had the blackened maple salmon which was delicious--one of the better salmon dishes I have had. Also, the spicy chipolte bloody mary was wonderful! My husband orded the mac and cheese but we both agreed the salmon was the winner. It is small, cozy restaurant with outdoor seating. The breakfeast menu looked great as well.
