OK, so you want a cup of fresh coffee from an exotic location and fresh baked looks and made to order pizza and sandwiches at NYC prices, here is where you go. Great wine and IPA beer selection, but the name is an oxymoron-- limited fresh fruit and veggies.

Mountain Fresh is more of a combination grocery/eatery and wine shop than what you think of as a "grocery." Here you will find prepared food to be taken or eaten on the premises, typical grocery items and an excellent wine selection. Breakfast is excellent and there is even a small area "pizzeria" as part of the operation.

Wonderful spot for a classic breakfast with good coffee. As is clear from the name would imply, it doubles as a grocery store and carries local products.

This place has is easy for breakfast with any size group and has some wonderful breakfast items. I haven't eaten for lunch or dinner, or tried their new pizzeria, but we go here for breakfast at least once during every visit.

We started our visit to Highlands, NC with a quick stop at the Mountain Fresh Grocery. The place is a very pleasant surprise with an eclectic mix of prepared, take and go, and sit down food. This is combined with a grocery selection, that while small, is anything but simplified. The MFG has a wonderful selection of prepared foods, along... More

Great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Fast service and great menu choices. It's located inside a specialty grocery store so you can pick up a few items after you dine. Great take and bake pizza's are also offered next door.

We had breakfast here which was very good. The tables weren't very clean. We came back that evening for pizza and was disappointed as the pizza was very greasy. My wife and I both used the restrooms which were not clean and the women's restroom had no toilet paper. This place could and should do better than this

We had breakfast here each morning while staying at the Old Edwards Inn. It's a short walk there, and the breakfast AND coffee were great! You are eating at tables inside the grocery or on picnic tables outside. They have an incredible bakery, a good wine selection, and fun local foods.
