Nice friendly people with a very good breakfast menu. You may ask, how can you screw up eggs and bacon? Many places do but not this place. Quaint atmosphere. If you are skiing Beech Mountain, stop here for breakfast on one of your days. Get the cinnamon roll. (A+) The place was packed but we received our food very quickly.... More

My kids can't wait to go to Fred's. The store, the deli, the walk to get there is all part of the experience. Breakfast is great and the feeling of your visit is just what you want from the mountains.

Great place to stop, shop and grab a picnic lunch for a day of hiking. We are a family of 6, stopped in Fred's our first day in town at 2:55 (deli closes at 3). The staff was very accommodating despite it being closing time and made us 6 sandwiches and took great care of us. Went back two days... More

This is a nice quick stop restaurant under a nice general store. I only had time for breakfast, but the menu looked good for all meals. The biscuits are excellent!

The deli is located in the basement of Fred's General Mercantile atop Beech Mountain (Think of an L.L. Bean country store setting.) You can get fist full of great deli sandwich choices, good chili or a number of breakfast choices. Definitely worth the visit for either breakfast and/or lunch.

Went there for lunch, chili was great. Also try the homemade chicken salad. This is the best place on the mountain.

My wife and I enjoy stopping in here often for a quick lunch. The chili and sandwiches are very good and the employees are super friendly. Visitors will enjoy the old style mercantile store atmosphere. I encourage everyone passing thru here to stop in.
