the Italian street food entrees and pizza are excellent

This is not a sit-down fine dining experience but the food is dependably great and there are choices to satisfy everyone, from little kids, to non-foodies, and real gourmets. This is the place you go with the family after a day's hiking and you are too tired to shower and change clothes. Just call... read more

Staying at Old Edwards. Too late for breakfast so wondered down to Mountain Fresh for breakfast. Looks like a great high end spot for picking up items that you would normally find in the pricey specialty areas of grocery stores. I was surprised to see how many items I would pick up for dinner parties or special occasions and how... More

We were looking for a place to have a down home outdoor dining experience and found it at Mountain Fresh Gorcery! In addition to their deli selection they have added brick oven pizza and Italian street food to their offereings. I was a great place for a quick, inexpensive,no frills alfresco bite while enjoying downtown Highlands!

Excellent sandwich selection with three specials every day. Something for everyone. Crowded but the line moves quickly.

I had the shrimp poor boy sandwich and my wife a chicken salad. We threw them away, they were not well made and without flavor. Very sad to see how this hide a way had fallen over the years. If you want to eat a sandwich go anywhere else and wait in line. However if you want to eat in... More

Love the fresh food, the wine, the beer, the bakery and the service is AMAZING. This is the coolest grocery store in the world. And you must have a homemade doughnut on the weekends.

The place is separated by a pizza & Italian food area, a coffee bar, a bakery, a small grocery & large wine selection, plus an American style over the counter restaurant. We had their delicious soups & a sandwich built to our specification. Although it was crowded our name was called in less than ten minutes & a server brought... More

The dinner take-outs are the best buy in Highlands and very good! We had the BBQ dinner with coleslaw, baked beans and rolls one night. Another was prime rib with baked potatoes and caesar salad.

Love all the fresh cooked and baked choices but enjoyed the old Mountain Fresh better. Hardly any groceries or fresh produce now.

Told I was getting 8 oysters in a poor boy sandwich I got balls of deep fried batter with maybe 2 emaciated oysters. Really crappy. What happened to cornmeal crust?
