Wow. What a secret! The meats and cheeses were fabulous, the bakery was out of this world! The gluten free options were plentiful and service was great! Lou was very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

Simply put, this store is a well kept secret and local treasure. Don't be put off by the outside or the lack of order in the staging of foods in the narrow aisles. Take a slow and thoughtful walk through the store as there is...More

This is a must grab when we are in Highlands. We even take them home for tailgating. They are back in the deli counter and so with the trip!

This is a grocery store/fresh meat market. In the back they will cut you fresh steaks, chicken, veal, whatever. They also have a deli that has the most amazing homemade soups( I recommend the lobster bisque) and sundried tomato bread. Fresh salads and a ton of homemade goodies in the freezer section. Do not miss this place!
