While there are certainly some groceries available, the real attraction is the variety of prepared foods to choose from. There is both indoor and outdoor seating for dining, and you are bound to find affordable, appealing choices for a fun lunch.

Loved the great gourmet groceries and wine. They now have a coffee bar on the middle of the store and I love the coffee here. We went for a few groceries and found ourselves eating breakfast here every morning of our vacation. Great homemade French toast , waffles, eggs, steel cut oatmeal with real maple syrup and nuts on top,... More

I went there with my daughter. She had an excellent grilled chicken sandwich and potato bacon soup which were delicious. I got a grilled chicken salad. All the ingredients were delicious and fresh. The homemade onion straws on the salad were delicious. It's a great place for a quick lunch.

My family loves the burgers they serve here at the Mountain Fresh Grocery. While the store does have a small offering of all the grocery staples, it is more of a cafe. It has also recently expanded into a separate pizza restaurant right next to the grocery store. The parking, like pretty much everywhere in Highlands, is minimal and tough... More

The place in town to go for a delicious quick lunch or to get picnic food or if you are lucky enough to live in HIghlands to get something prepared for dinner. A marvelous wine selection and a knowledgeable wine buyer!

While called a grocery store, because it originally was, Mountain Fresh has now morphed into a deli counter, full meal line and pizza & pasta to go or eat in. Locals know to call ahead for take out meal of the day; to get there early to beat the church crowd on Sunday and to go early to put in... More

The food was good, there were plenty of choices, and either call ahead to order or don't go during mealtime rush hours.

We did the take-out dinner twice. You get enough food for dinner for two plus at least a lunch with the leftovers. We had the BBQ with sides one night for about $25 for two and the prime ribs with salad and baked potatoes for about $33 for two. Both were quite tasty. We definitely will be returning.

We ate breakfast or lunch here everyday for our five day visit. Everything is cooked fresh right in front of you. Great eggs, french toast for breakfast. Huge delicious hamburgers and fries or wonderful big salads for lunch. Expect to wait in line 10-15 minutes to order as this place is very popular -- worth the wait.

We always make sure we stop at the Mountain fresh for a meal when visiting the area. You know it is good when so many locals eat here. Try the chicken tenders. We split the chicken tenders salad. don't forget to buy some local honey to take home!
