We are up in Kirkwood for 4 days. I brought enough food to cook for most days, and thought I could pick up some food while here. They have milk & apples, but not much more fresh food. It's mostly canned soups and such. There are the basics if you get sick or forgot sunscreen, and a good selection of... More

Well stocked general store with just about anything you need if stuck in quiet Kirkwood in summer. Chair lift only for mtn bikers and hikers as you can't ride down...but a nice resbit from over crowded and over priced S. Lake Tahoe.

I believe this little store closes at 5PM which I thought was inconvenient. All major grocery shopping needs to be done about 45 minutes away at one of Riley's.

While I did not see any scones (it was Sunday), they serve very good lattes and my husband enjoyed his egg bagel. They also make pizza and sandwiches.

Minimal selection of cleaning products, coffee, milk, eggs, cheese ... lots of beer, though. I expected more given the very limited options in this area, some distance from South Lake Tahoe. If you come renting a place, bring groceries.

Did you forget something? Bet you did. The general store has a little of everything from snack to drinks to t-shirts to sun tan lotion. Prices are affordable and the staff is very friendly

Stopped by for phone service and an ice cream. The staff was busy cleaning and stocking, very quiet afternoon. A jumping place in ski season but a sleepy village mid-summer week day. Isolated and pricey but I was pleased with the product and service.

If you're heading to Kirkwood for a stay and like to cook, then you'll want to load up on food before you arrive. The store is similar to a mini mart with very little produce or meat. They offer ice cream and have a deli have a decent selection of beers and a couple different wines if you're lucky.

Open all day every day, so that was convenient. Friendly service. Items limited, understand it would be hard to have fresh produce or meats, but how about a better wine selection? Also needed cold medecine and there was not much to choose from.

This place was open early and had wonderful coffee and sandwiches. Do not go to Kirkwood expecting to buy everything at this store, they are remote so the prices are high, but they do have a pretty good selection. I had a bagel, cream cheese, tomato and bacon and it was wonderful!
