I would like Paula, the owner, to know that we do not live in Red River. We live in Texas. We were "Customers." Also regarding the straight wooden chairs at MT are very uncomfortable and I was referring to the backs. Would she like to comp our meals now?

No comps. We stand behind our outstanding reputation that has grown over the past 14 years.

Mountain Treasures has a huge menu of wonderful homemade soups, made-to-order deli sandwiches (like ruebens, chicken-fried steak sandwiches and muffalettas)on fresh, "housemade" baked breads. The delightful smell of Kolaches, cinnamon rolls, turnovers, and cookies flow through the whole place and you may find them hard to turn down! Entrees include fried chicken with fries & Texas toast as well as catfish with hush puppies & fries. Our coffee shop serves steaming cappuccinos, lattes, and fresh house coffee as well as fresh-fruit smoothies. We've proudly served visitors and locals for 12 years on Main Street right in the middle of town across from the Community House.
