Authentic, Beautiful Taste of the South: Tupelo Honey Cafe

For the third installment of the Arlington Restaurant Spotlight, the new wave of Southern cooking is center stage. With devout attention to classic Southern authenticity & hospitality, it’s no surprise that Tupelo Honey has thrived in the understated Court House neighborhood since opening up shop in 2015. Bringing with its love of the traditional Southern fare, they deftly infuse a modern update to an age old cuisine for its cosmopolitan constituents. As such, they are known to put on one of the best brunches in all of Arlington. We invite you to put on your nice Sunday attire and head over for a bite of mouth watering fried chicken!
