About Guadalupe Cafe

Proudly serving farm-to-table tropical fusion food for over a decade, Guadalupe Cafe is located in a cozy spot on Sylva's tiny Main Street in a charming 1920s drugstore/fountainshop. We frequently host jazz/old-timey musicians, and our walls feature ever-changing exhibits by local artists. As a collaborative restaurant with a deep commitment to our local farming & artistic community, our menu is a creative blend of global food traditions prepared using all available local produce, fish, meats & cheese. Guadalupe has been featured in Gourmet magazine ("America's Best Farm-to-Table Restaurants" oct.'07) as well as numerous features, guides & superlatives such as the annual local "Best of the Xpress". Come join us for brunch on the weekends, or enjoy a pint of local beer on our patio with some of our famous Goat Curry; pair Tribal Grounds espresso or biodynamic Spanish wine with one of our house-made organic sweets, or fashion an extravagant burrito (just hand-pick your favorite ingredients from our taqueria menu with choices like grilled local greens, Yellow Branch farm's pepper cheese, fried plantains, Dark Cove garlic & chive goat cheese, pepper-sautéed shrimp, curried potatoes & plenty more). Although we specialize in locally sourced, organic, healthy food, we strive to have something for everyone: families, spicy food aficionados, the classic meat&3 crowd, vegans & vegetarians. Our relationships with dozens of small farmers, artisanal cheese-makers, brewers, coffee-roasters, artists, bakers, craftspeople & musicians in WNC are vital to our existence and 10+ years' success; it is both our mission & our passion to create delicious, wholesome food with only the best, freshest ingredients to be found. Please come by & thank you for supporting local food in the mountains!
