“Made with love”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Excellent! My husband had the savory chicken salad with fresh fruit and I had the TCB grill (turkey, bacon,Colby jack cheese, mayo & Dijon grilled on sourdough bread with tomato soup and chips. They soup was full of fresh tomato's and hands down the best I've had anywhere! The chicken salad sandwich was obviously made with love as that's the only way chicken salad could be this good! The TCB grill was good, much better than chain sandwich shops could ever do. Love the downtown location! Parking isn't an issue as there are many spaces near the restaurant. We will return :-)

“Quick and delicious lunch spot!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Cafe 212 is only open for lunch. They have a great variety of sandwiches, salads, and soups to appease any appetite. My personal favorite is a sandwich called Some Like it Hot which includes turkey, bacon, cheese, and jalapenos. They have a lineup of foods that are Elvis themed. The food is made fresh, and the employees are very friendly. Expect a line as the people of Tupelo really enjoy this establishment! I did not get to try a dessert, but the iced tea was fresh and the tables were spotless. It's a perfect lunchtime cafe!

“Very good simple lunch time spot”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Good fresh food served by obliging and efficient staff. Soup portions are small but very tasty . Good range of sandwiches prepared to order. Well worth a visit if you are in the area - good place if time is limited .

Thank you for taking the time to review our Cafe. I am glad you enjoyed everything. I'm glad you enjoyed the soup too and next time you are in you can upgrade to the bowl of soup for only a $1.50 more:) Thanks again!

“Truly my favorite place to eat!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Cafe 212 has long been my favorite restaurant since it opened! We have moved 4 hours away and I still return to eat there as frequently as I can. The owners and staff are amazing - so kind and always helpful. The food is superb! My absolute favorite is the honey apple walnut chicken salad on wheat, grilled, along with a large bowl potato soup. The atmosphere is fun and artsy - totally comfortable and relaxed. It has a unique charm that can't be beat - and can't be found elsewhere. If you have the opportunity to eat anywhere in Tupelo - make it at Cafe 212 and you will not be disappointed!
