Which is not always easy in Highlands---great service and extensive offerings---and meals are available for lunch and dinner also---seating is limited in the grocery store--which also has a bakery.

This is a great little place at the edge of town to stock up on groceries, eat a meal, drink a glass of wine, sample some cheese and the oil/vinegar bar is great, you can sample everything. Brought several back home. The pizza here is amazing and well worth the wait. It was a bit chilly when we were there... More

Mountain fresh has excellent coffee and breakfast. They're selections of olive oils and balsamic vinegars make great gifts as well as for personal consumption. We at there each morning for breakfast and it was always good.

Definitely recommend this location for lunch, although their breakfast looks great too. We came to Highlands for a few hours walked through some of the stores and some of the locals recommended we try this place and it was great! We had the hamburger & French fries and it was delicious, huge hamburgers on fresh bread I think they bake... More

This place is always bustling and it's easy to see why. They have a great grill/deli where you can order breakfast every morning (I think until 10:30?) and burgers/sandwiches for lunch. And they've now added a bakery/pizza place onto the other side of the store which I'm looking forward to trying. Another think I love about this store is the... More

The first time I visited Highlands last year, I thought this place was just a market. My father-in-law asked us to pick him up some wine and sandwich when in town and I soon found out this place has a wonderful deli and hot dinners and breakfast. We picked up some drinks and snacks and went back the next morning... More

Plus bought steaks for our grill that was some of the very best ever had. Employees working here are so helpful and friendly. Especially those that work in back deli and... More

I visit Mountain Fresh 3 to 5 times a week. (I could have stock in the place) It has mushroomed into a one-stop shop with so many goodies! Everything is always fresh and delicious. JT is super knowledgeable about what is in and what is served in his store! So glad to have this place here!
