Tupelo Honey – Sandy Springs, GA

Fourth of July morning was atypical for us. For the last seven years, we’ve walked the South’s largest road race – the Peachtree Road Race.  But neither of us was really feeling it this year, so we passed.  That allowed us to sleep in and then we headed out for brunch.  I searched Open Table for a reservation – mainly to guarantee that where we were headed would be open on the holiday.  Up popped Asheville’s , Tupelo Honey.  Their focus is on Southern comfort food, with a farm to table twist.  What better way to celebrate the Fourth?  We hadn’t been to any of their Atlanta locations, so down the highway we rolled.

If you’ve been looking for an antique screened door and can’t find one, it’s because they’ve bought them up for a display – at least at the Sandy Springs location.

And if you’re looking for dishes, they’re on the Great Wall of China. On to brunch.  My beloved ordered avocado toast with eggs, fried well.

She really enjoyed the avocado toast.  I’ve noticed it appearing on breakfast all over town for the last couple of years.  I was undecided and went with our servers suggestion – the shoo mercy breakfast.  Fried chicken, spiced pecans, sweet potato waffles, apple cider bacon, two eggs and a grilled apple with blueberries.  Maybe that would be enough food…

The apple cider bacon was the highlight of this plate.  I love good bacon and this was great bacon.  The sweet potato waffles didn’t do much for me, but the plate overall was a success.

When we went back for a Thanksgiving weekend brunch with our kids, I ordered the the fried chicken & biscuits.  The biscuits were topped with Goodnight Brothers country ham, milk gravy and basil.

This was a much better brunch choice than on the initial visit.  I guess I just prefer biscuits to waffles.  And the ham was just as good as the bacon.

And, wouldn’t you know it? It was the best looking race shirt design in the last decade, and we don’t have one.
