Tupelo Honey Cafe first opened in downtown Asheville in 2000, and in the 16 years since, it's become a Southern staple. One location has expanded into a 12-restaurant chain across North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. On Monday, June 20, Tupelo Honey adds a fifth state to its roster when the Sandy Springs outpost officially opens for business.
Located in the Sandy Springs Gateway development at 4600 Roswell Rd., Tupelo Honey's 13th restaurant will cover 6,800 square feet and offer seating for 163 inside, plus another 43 on the patio. The decor features works from local artists Helen Durant, Craig Ford, Katherine W. Linn, Lisa Moore, and Nancy B. Westfall.
Tupelo Honey Cafe will initially open for dinner, Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight. Weekend brunch service will begin on Saturday, July 16, and lunch will follow on Monday, July 18. Take a look around the space via the photos below.
