“Mountain Munchies....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This place is the big hit in Highlands. A hit for groceries, wine, and the deli. The deli offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and for the locals, they buy complete take out dinners. This is a sit outside (under the screened in porch) on a picnic table type of place, but the food is upscale in every way. Try it sometime and you will like it guaranteed!

“Great shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The oil and vinegar selection is superb! Had take out breakfast there this morning and the bisquits and gravy are excellent. Saw a customer eating French Toast and it looked at least an inch and a half thick! Can't wait to try the pizza.

“great food, diverse selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Pros- Food was really tasty and cooked fresh on the spot. The seating areas are very casual, but nice.

Advice- It got a bit crowded during peak times so there was usually a wait when we were there and if you want to order one of the dinners you must call ahead of time!

“Your One Stop Shopping Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Years ago, Mountain Fresh Grocery in Highlands, NC was a quaint store located at the end of Main Street across from the Episcopal Church where you could get all sorts of staples for your kitchen to prepare a meal. In the last several years, new owner J. T. Fields, has taken over ownership of the grocery and turned it into a "One Stop Shopping Experience" unlike none other in Highlands. You have not only a grocery, you have a deli, bakery, wood-fired pizza grill, a unique "Olive Bar" where you can learn about all types/varieties of olive oil from all over the world not to mention some of the best hand made specialty burgers around. Oh, did I forget to mention Mountain Fresh also has take-out? J. T. and his staff always welcome you with big smiles and seem to know when you come in just what you need. Trust this writer....you NEVER leave Mountain Fresh hungry after a meal and if you cannot finish all on your plate, you can always have them wrap it to go! Mountain Fresh is always one of my "go-to" places in Highlands and it should be yours as well.

“I just came in for some crackers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I came into the grocery store thinking that I would get some cheese and crackers to eat on a bench outside. Wow! This store has a huge selection of craft beers . They also have freshly made ice cream I ate a scoop of maple bacon ice cream. Yes Bacon! Fantastically smooth with a hint of bacon without being overwhelmingly smoky. We then ordered a fig and goat cheese pizza with arugula inside and enjoyed our meal on the bench across from the quaint church. Fantastic place for a casual date !
