Tupelo Honey Cafe in Johnson City

When Kerry and I arrived in Johnson City we knew we wanted to try some local restaurants and chose Tupelo Honey Cafe because the menu looked amazing and the restaurant itself looked lovely.  Also, it was only a few miles from the Carnegie Hotel where we stayed.  We didn’t realize until later that Tupelo Honey Cafe has many locations in Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee and Virginia.  They just opened the one in Georgia so I look forward to taking my family there!

Let’s just talk about the building and patio first.  I love architecture and historic buildings so I thought it was stunning.  It is located in the historic Clinchfield Train Depot.  There is a train set inside with a little step stool for kids to be able to see.

We sat outside because it was such a beautiful day but the interior of the restaurant was lovely also.  Check out these doors!

The waitresses were so friendly and helpful.  We asked them about the town and what we should do and see.  They told us about the history of Founder’s Park, the farmer’s market and the local shops!  All of that was very helpful in planning our day as we ate breakfast.

Biscuits and honey were served first.  No surprise for a good southern restaurant!  I thought it was very good!

I had the Tupelo Genuine Country Breakfast with potato cracklins.  Let’s talk about potato cracklins because I had never heard of them prior to this.  Our waitress said that they are baked potatoes that are smashed and then fried.  They are good!  I love that my breakfast was served  with a little kale salad on the plate.  It was perfect.

Kerry had the Eggs Betty.  It looked really good!

We loved the restaurant.  It was the perfect way to start the day.  Our waitress gave us a to-go sweet tea before we could even ask her for one.  She thought we would want one to take on our walk thru town.  That is good southern hospitality!
