This is a grocery store/fresh meat market. In the back they will cut you fresh steaks, chicken, veal, whatever. They also have a deli that has the most amazing homemade soups( I recommend the lobster bisque) and sundried tomato bread. Fresh salads and a ton of homemade goodies in the freezer section. Do not miss this place!

Lunch plus!

Office is across the street, and we eat or take out lunch regularly. Kitty and the staff in the kitchen always provide great meals, and the smile is free! The desserts are home made and delicious.

Met some local folk last night and they suggested we stop into Dusty's. What a fabulous find! It's sort of like a Meat Market/Deli/Restaurant and then some all combined into one. We ordered "Take Out' sandwiches and while they were being made scoured the market for all sort of specialties. They have many home made dishes, some frozen. They have... More

We always go to Dusty's on Saturday morning for beignets when we are in Highlands. It's a great place to have a cup of joe, some sweet morning treats, and meet nice people. Our tween and teens love it too!

Hard to believe how much food is located in one small store. Butcher shop meats, lots of great specialty sauces, baked goods; really anything you might need. Highly recommend for vacation rental/cabin renters.

Dusty's is a Highlands must see. It has an eclectic mix of gourmet, pre-prepared and fresh baked pies, cakes, breads and various other confections most of which are made in house. There is a butcher and it a great place to pick up steaks or homemade hotdogs. Everyone that visits me in Highlands always gets a tour of Dusty's.

The restaurant is in the back of the store and serves delicious sandwiches and salads. We not only enjoyed our lunch, but loved the store. It had a great selection of goods considering its size. There were Sarabeth's preserves and other surprising brands. While we waiting to pay, a local farmer was delivering jars of honey straight from the hive.... More
