“LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

You can do everything in this grocery from eating any or all three meals, to perusing an amazing selection of Balsamic Vinegars and Oils, to doing your weekly grocery purchases.

First let me say that Janice, the lady in the Vinegar and Oil section is so knowledgable that I could've talked to her for hours and up until that day, I couldn't have cared a less about Vinegar and Oil. But today I can say I am a HUGE fan and learned so much from her about pairings and flavors and regions that I can't wait to get home and begin using the ones I bought. She paired Orange Infused Olive Oil with Raspberry Balsamic and I literally could have drank it straight!! It was sweet yet slightly pungent and will be fabulous on fruit, ice cream, etc. Janice is your "go to gal" for all things Vinegar and Oil.

The grocery has outstanding breakfasts (and plenty of seating to eat in) fabulous lunches and dinners for there or to go. They make their own wood fired pizza's, their sandwiches are great and their desserts are mouth watering. They have a large wine selection if you want to partake and all this can be yours for barely a wait. There is always a line when in season, but it moves very quickly and they have it down to a science so don't be scared away if it looks busy!

Go, Explore, Enjoy!!

“Southern Sophisicated!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Excellent coffee (better than Buck's), biscuit and gravy and French Toast were to die for. Interesting selection of olive oil and fresh bread. Really neat, original place!

“A Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The "grocery" has dedicated about 30% to a deli with some of the best food and friendly people you will ever meet. Tables inside and outside. Open 7am until 8pm. Hot breakfast, burgers $10, and a wide array of choices all priced slightly high but very cheap for Highlands.

“Interesting Groceries, great eats”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Mountain Fresh Grocery offers a nice selection of interesting and often hard to find gourmet foods, sauces, and condiments. Nice wine selection. Fun to just wheel your cart down the aisles and take in all of the interesting labels. Some items will definitely find their way home with you. On board kitchen. Excellent food to eat there in house or to take home. Good selection of food items prepared right there. Hamburgers are especially good. They publish daily take out meal specials in the local paper. Makes meal time a breeze whether you are alone, at home with hungry guests or out on the town and ready for a bite.
