Tupelo Honey Cafe

Its awesome to think of all the experiences that are waiting for us, just outside of our homes.  My family and I recently visited a new restaurant and we were so surprised by how great it was!   

Tupelo Honey Cafe is located in Raleigh, North Carolina on Oberlin road.  From the moment we walked in, we could feel the southern charm.  The decor was an appropriately themed contemporary natural dining space with a lot of natural wood and light.   There is also an amazing piece of glass honeycomb dripping honey as you walk through the doors.  This place was bustling with people, which to me is always a good sign.  

Great ambiance and energy

We were invited by my sister-in-law Brooke who was in town for a music festival and her birthday weekend.  She googled "best brunch places in Raleigh, NC".  Our food was delicious and beautiful.  I'm really happy we have our own Tupelo so close to where my family and I call home. 

PECAN-CRUSTED GOAT CHEESE

This appetizer was amazing, everyone loved it.  This is where the magic of food happens.  Great food gives your conversation a place to start, it is the ultimate ice-breaker.  It's said if you can make someone smile you can win their heart.  Great food does all the heart winning you need. 

CLASSIC SHRIMP & GRITS

My main course was Shrimp and Grits.  Let me just say,  they are the best I've had in the Raleigh area. It was a perfectly prepared meal.  The shrimp were tender and full of flavor.  The grits were super creamy and delicious.  The entire dish was so well balanced, something I will order again and again. 

Awesome Decor

This place is incredible, I can't believe they are a chain.  Even if your not located in Raleigh, there may be one near by.  Check them out!  

Take the time to appreciate your food as an experience.  Allow it to bring you closer to the people around you.  Excited to go back.
