Uptown Cafe and Catering has been locally owned and operated for over 30 years. Started in 1983 in the heart of downtown Tallahassee, we have been serving unique, healthy,homemade breakfast and lunch fare to a loyal and varied clientele. Our “regulars’ have become our friends over the years. Fred and Beth Tedio, owners, take pride in that. We have also proudly employed family, friends, and many students from all of the local universities over the years. Many staff have worked their way through college at Uptown, becoming part of the family, and staying in touch to this day.
Raising two sons while growing the business truly made Uptown a family affair. Nic Tedio is the general manager of our current location , across from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. This location was opened in April 2000 and has been a great success for Uptown and the community. In 2003 we sadly closed the doors, and a chapter in the life of Uptown Cafe, at the downtown location. This was located at 111 E College Ave for 20 years. While we miss our downtown neighbors, we are blessed to continue serving them fresh healthy food and always enjoy visiting with them when they come in. Beth still takes part in much of the behind the scenes administration of Uptown, and their son, SeanPaul, plays an active role in the building and maintaining of our uptownyum.com website.
We serve our homemade, eclectic brunch 7 days a week. We also offer excellent catering services, take out, and delivery through Doorstep Delivery. If you haven’t tried our Uptown Apricot Glazed SMOKED SALMON you don’t know what you are missing! Always the first thing to be enjoyed by your party guests, and it makes excellent gifts. We ship it too. Go to uptownyum.com to ship some to your friends.
