It is part grocery store, part bakery, part wine shop and the rest - restaurant! It's a good place to go if you have a bunch of people that want a variety of things .... salad... More

We always appreciate a gourmet grocery store and this one is exceptional. They have everything from prepared foods to pastries and everything else you could possibly want. We spent 30 minutes just walking up and down the aisles, and gourmet it truly is. This is a must stop for any traveler to the area!

This is a multi purpose spot. It's a market, cafe, deli, pizza place and coffee spot. The food is usually good although some things could use a little boost. Service can be slow but most of the employees are pleasant. It seems the kitchen can get a little bogged down. I was surprised at the wide variety of options from... More

Small, local grocery store with bakery, deli & large wine selection. Friendly, helpful staff. We didn't sample anything, but they did have a wine bar & cafe.

Order at the counter and get a number for your table inside or out. A server will bring your selections to you. Surprisingly large portions, but a tasty breakfast.

During a recent stay in Highlands, we had breakfast daily at Mountain Fresh. You order at a counter and can get take out or simple table service - as in the food is brought to your table but cutlery, condiments and other basics are self-serve. An excellent coffee bar is also on-site as is a bakery. In other words, there... More

When you are hungry for a quick bite, tasty burgers and the best fries in town, this is the place. Upscale fast food at a very reasonable price.
