Our first visit to Tupelo has been a memorable one! We've visited the birthplace of Elvis - the Tupelo Car Museum - and now the coffee bar at The Main Attraction! Awesome company, caramel latte and peanut butter chocolate chip cream pie!! Life is good ! To God be the Glory!!

Needing a good warm-me-up? I stopped at Café 212 and fell in love! From the earthy decor, to the accommodating service (not to mention my coffee) was breath taking. Jason and Amanda are also so inspiring. While taking out the garbage, the owner, stopped and introduced himself and gave his story.

Stopped in on a whim and wasn't disappointed. Had the soup and sandwich for lite lunch. The potato soup is out of this world and the chicken salad sandwich was very good. The owner stopped at our table and chatted. Definitively quick service and very reasonably priced :)

Super friendly. Good tasting food served with care. Very busy at lunch time & knows how to handle a crowd. This spot is well supported by the Tupelo community.

I love the fact that it is a small town feel to it. It is a husband-and-wife team that run it, and they do an excellent job on their sandwiches. I went a little past lunch, plenty of people in their shop. I had the chicken salad & grilled pimento cheese combo. With a side of zesty creamy tomato soup.... More

So glad we took the advice of Trip Advisor and stopped in for lunch. We had the best chicken salad and pimento cheese sandwiches. This is a must stop if we are ever back in the area!!!

We stopped in Tupelo on a trip to Memphis and wanted a local place. The place we were looking for had closed. We spotted Cafe 212 and decided to try it. Great choice! I had the white pimento cheese and my husband had the Colby jack grilled cheese. Both were delicious- cost less than a fast food stop complete with... More
