KERMIT’S SOUL KITCHEN
You know you’re in Tupelo when you catch a glimpse of the Elvis mural on Main Street in our historic Downtown. It’s here where you can pick up some of the best barbecue in town – we’re talking smoked meats, BBQ brisket burgers and wings. The folks at Kermit’s Soul Kitchen live by the farm-to-table ideology, sourcing from local farmers and craftspeople. Mitchell McCamey, the guy behind Kermit’s, is also the co-owner and butcher at sister establishment, the Neon Pig.

Stroll through the lit alleyways in Downtown Tupelo on your way to sugary sweetness at Crave. This dessert café is famous for its skillet cookies: a big chocolate chip cookie baked in a skillet, topped with mounds of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with more chocolate and caramel. Pair your sugar rush with a cup of their gourmet coffee or ice-cold milk, served in a mason jar.
Oh my sweet goodness, no matter the time of year, you’re going to want to stock up on some of PoPsy’s handcrafted popsicles. All day, you can also get your hands on a smoothie, açaí bowl, or wrap.
