You Gotta Stop Here for Lunch!

If you're in Tupelo, you must visit 212 Café for lunch. It is in a quaint little building that exudes warmth when you walk in. Order at the counter from the friendly staff, find you a seat, and wait to hear your name called. Interior has booths, small tables, and bar type seating. You may choose... read more

I do love this restaurant and while i usually get the same thing, the apple walnut chicken salad on croissant, everything else looks so good. Can't go wrong here for sure. Sit outside and enjoy the sun too!

Trip Advisor steered us right again. Soooo glad we stopped at this quirky and fun place. Potato and tomato soups were homemade and amazing. The menu had something for everyone. It was all super fresh and yummy!! The staff was so friendly. Made us feel like old friends. Prices were less than McDonalds! You won't be disappointed with the food... More

we always ask the locals where they suggest when we are on a motorcycle trip, passing through a town, In this case, it was the ladies at the Tupelo Auto Museum that told us about Cafe 212. It was easy to find, and we lucked out in getting our bikes parked on the street in front of the cafe'. You... More

Cafe 212 is part sandwich shop, part coffee shop and part art gallery! This isn't your average small town eatery. the atmosphere lends itself more to a larger metropolitan area than to Tupelo and I LOVE IT! On those not so hot or cold days, I may choose to sit outside and people watch on downtown main street. When I... More

I came here for a cup of coffee. When I came into the restaurant the workers were not friendly. I guess they were busy prepping for the lunch crowd. The coffee was ok. Nothing too spectacular about it.

For tasty, fresh terrific food, don't miss Cafe 212 in downtown Tupelo! In a long, narrow, artsy setting, the locally owned cafe offers delicious food literally prepared on the spot in a very impressive and efficient manner ! The grilled cheese sandwich was scrumptious, wait time was minimal, and tables were scarce as this is a very popular cafe. So... More
