The mystery of why Tupelo Junction Cafe closed on State Street in early November is a little less mysterious. It appears the whole thing was planned. Though the restaurant shut its doors suddenly with no explanation, reader Peter came across a big clue in the Newport Beach, California blog savenewport.com: “Tupelo Junction Opens in the Old ‘The Porch’ Location. For those who frequent Santa Barbara, you have doubtlessly tried the famous Tupelo Junction Cafe there. Known for its kitchen and their dog-friendly environment, the prime location in Santa Barbara closed exactly one week ago today, presumably so that the owner could focus on her shop in Newport, as she is a Corona del Mar resident. The menu will be virtually identical to the old Santa Barbara Tupelo Junction with the exception of the Happy Hour menu, which is a new addition to the Newport location.”
