Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband had the tuna salad which he said was very good. I had the BLT, and it was the best BLT I've ever had. The bread was made there (whole wheat) and the sandwich was piled with tons of crisp bacon and farm-fresh tomato...and lettuce. Next time we're in town, we'll visit Tupulo's again.More

We were exploring the countryside around Tallahassee and decided to try Tupelo's for lunch. It's a very informal place with an old Florida vibe--linoleum tiles on floor, mismatched but comfortable table and chairs. You order at the counter and within a few minutes you pick...up your sandwiches in a brown paper bag--ready to eat inside or take out. My BLT on rye was the best BLT ever! Tons of bacon and fat slices of a juicy tomato with crunchy lettuce on bakery bread. (I had told my husband "white" bread, but he heard "rye," and I'd order it that way again.) Husband ordered the tuna salad which was also top quality. The tuna was chock full of goodies, and the sandwich also had farm-fresh tomatoes and lettuce plus a slice of cheese. Their prices are extremely reasonable. After lunch I bought two pastries from their case to take home. We've already sampled the cinnamon bun, and it's the best I've had since the ones made by the lunch ladies at my elementary school back in the 1950s--the ultimate compliment. Next time we're in Monticello, we'll certainly go to Tupelo's again. I'd like to try the quiche, but I may not be able to resist the BLT.More

They have an excellent lunch menu and delicious looking pastries. It’s nice because you can order a half or whole sandwich and make it a combo with a drink and chips for $3. More. Very reasonably priced. The Italian sandwich and blt as well as...a raspberry cream cheese brioche we had were delicious. The staff they have there are so very pleasant.More

Best lunch restaurant ever. I was so excited to be there. The staff were friendly and patient as I tried to decide which sandwich and which salad I would choose. The sweet ice tea was delicious. I loved that they use as much as possible...local fresh produce.More

This is a delicious little cafe in the heart of Monticello. I had a half of a BLT on their fresh baked bread and let me tell you, they did not skimp on the bacon. It was so flavorful! If I am ever back in...town, I will definitely be eating there again.More

Came through the downtown area on the way back from donating items to the local school. My friend wanted to stop at what she described as "a great little place." The cafe is just the right size, indoor seating (there appeared to be one table...outside). Good service. I ordered a piece of tomato/feta/spinach quiche and a slice of zucchini bread. My friend ordered the hippie chick salad and a slice of lemon cake. From what I understand, many of their ingredients come from local farms; the to-go container for my quiche appeared to be very biodegradable, which is great; love when restaurants are eco-friendly! While waiting for our order, we were able to step over a few feet to a nice little "gift shop like" store - Full Moon Farm Store. This store had all kinds of goodies, from locally made honey (various flavors) to goat milk scented soaps to essential oils. The young lady at the cash register in the store was so very pleasant. Back to our lunch - I enjoyed the quiche; some spinach on the top was a bit "crispy," but that was fine; the zucchini bread was tasty, though I did not care much for the chocolate chips that I didn't realize were in the bread. My friend enjoyed the chicken salad and her cake. I will plan to visit again and try that famous chicken salad - and perhaps the scones.More

Good coffee. That's the most important thing. We had lunch there. Hippie Chick Chicken salad was delish. A couple of us had savory danish, too.

The Quiche I had at Tupelos may be the best one I've ever had. Their coffee was also quite good. It's obvious the quality is uppermost here. Also, friendly service and a cute owner. Attached to the cafe, beeswax products are for sale and the...candle I purchased there is of excellent quality.More

You would expect to find this restaurant in a trendy urban district in a much larger area. So many yummy choices made on site with local fresh ingredients. Don't let the name fool you. There are much more than fantastic bakery items here. Fresh, creamy,...fluffy egged Quiche, sandwiches made with fresh baked bread paired with the soup of the day...delicious salads made with fresh locally grown ingredients...love the Big green Salad with Turkey added. Kim, the owner greets everyone with a genuine smile. You will feel like you are at home even if you don't live there. A place to relax and unwind while feeding your body and soul.More
