Guadalupe Café opened in Sylva’s beautiful downtown Main Street in 2003, taking over the former home of Hooper’s Drug Store. Though we still have the checkered floor, the antique bar-stools and the vintage soda fountain (for decoration only), we’ve transformed the space into a friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar. We’ve replaced the hot dogs and milkshakes with our Caribbean-inspired fusion cuisine, a diverse selection of wines from Spain and Latin-America and micro-brewed beers from across the nation and right down the street.
We are a farm-to-table eatery, which means we strive to use locally-grown and organic ingredients whenever possible. Open our menu and you’ll see “Fresh. Local. Organic.” written across the page. This isn’t just our motto, it’s our creed. We’ve built relationships with local producers so that your food comes straight from their garden to our kitchen. Our goal is to provide the freshest and best tasting food possible, and we are proud to announce that Gourmet magazine featured us as a national example of the fresh-and-local movement.
Guadalupe Café is open for dinner Monday through Saturday nights. We are also open for lunch on Saturdays. Our menu offers customizable burritos, nachos and quesadillas, as well as our specialty menu of tapas and entrées, and daily specials to showcase our freshest and most delicious ingredients. We also include several selections for vegan and vegetarian diners.
The café also serves host to live musical performances featuring different bands of all genres, originating from both the local area and throughout the country. Our walls also act as a gallery for exhibits from Sylva and Cullowhee artists.
If you’re looking for a delicious meal in a cozy space or a tasty brew with an exciting show, we hope you’ll come by for a visit.
