Restaurant Santa Barbara

Tupelo Junction showcases South flavors next to Santa Barbara's historic Granada Theater.

Tupelo Junction Cafe is next to State Street’s classic movie house, the Granada Theater. I’d known about the Southern-tinged restaurant for a couple years, but it finally took a food feature about Santa Barbara from R.W. Apple, Jr. to get me through the door.

Restaurant Santa Barbara

Tupelo Junction’s interior features brick walls, wood beams, fruit-focused paintings, and watering cans hanging in back.

Tupelo Junction presents fresh-squeezed orange juice in a Mason jar, with a side of fresh flowers.

Cinnamon apple beignets come with crème Anglaise.
