Cool place that has lots of live music. Many beers to choose from. They have alot of beers listed on their menu but if you see a brewery you like and not the beer on the menu, ask if they have it. They usually have a few brews that aren't listed. Some times it is a little hard to get a waitress/bartender's attention. Their food menu is definitely different than your average restaurant. So if you're a picky eater then I wouldn't recommend eating here, BUT definitely drinking here! The music at night is usually hit or miss. You never know what to expect when you walk in unless you know the band. Theres been times where i've stayed here till they closed because of the music and times where the music was unbearable and left after drinking a beer. They have reasonably priced craft beer. Cheapest ones on the menu are Brooklyn Brown and Bavaria for 2.75 i believe. They also have sam smiths, bells, flying dog, st peters, and the local brewery's (Heinzelmannchen) beer on tap.

I cannot really call this a beer bar in good faith. For the area, sure, bit overall no wya. Stopped in here after the brewery last weekend just to see what it was about. The drafts were exceluse of the local brewery(Heinzel) and the bottles were a mixed bag, local western carolina Highland was notes, some DFH, and a couple Rogue. Nothing really spectacular. It was decent, dont get me wrong, but not really a beer destination. The brewery down the street though is awesome I have to admit! Overall if you are in Sylva your choices are limites to begin with so not terrible by that stretch.

Guadalupe is a breeze to find (as is everything in Sylva) on Main Street. The place appears to have once been a soda shop and now has the old soda counter as well as some tables. The place is definitely ecclectic, but with few folks, no smoke and some music on the sound system made for an enjoyable dinner.

The beers were 3 drafts and 25+/- bottled selections, and while there they rearranged about 3 of the selections so it is probably best to ask if you don't see what you want on draft or in the cooler case. Tonight the beers were two Heinzelmännchen drafts and a Post Road Pumpkin Ale (in April???).

The food is definitely fusion, but a fusion of Spanish and Mexican. Everythin is fresh and supposedly organic. Goat is a staple so go for it.

I'll definitely drop back in, but might opt for more things on my burrito next time!

This unique place is located on West Main Street (the center street in Sylva). For lack of a better description I will label the food Latin Fusion. This place is very indicative of Sylva, a sleepy little rural town with surprising influences from the nearby University and tourist influx. The result is an eclectic mix that makes Sylva one of my favorite places in the US. The Guadalupe Café is in an old renovated main street building that gives it a cool atmosphere. There is a retro '50s kitschy feel to it. The only taps that they have are three from the local Heinzelmännchen Brewery (try the Kilted Gnome Scottish Ale). However, they have an impressive selection of bottled beer for such a small town. To name but a few: several from Dogfish Head, Acme, Allagash, He'Brew, Sweetwater, Highlands, St. Peter's, Alley Kat, and many more. They have least 30 different craft beers if not closer to 40. The food is unique as well with menu items including goat, venison, and very unique preparation of plantains. A must try place.
