Truly a unique place to visit for a bite, beverage or quick shopping needs. Excellent wine selection (best retail in town), excellent breakfast or lunch. Very friendly for locals and visitors alike. While the food/grocery component is limited it will offer the best in specialty items including bakery, pizza, and more. If you get to The Highlands, this stop is... More

Had breakfast here both days that we stayed in town. This is a cute, up-scale grocery store with a large fresh/prepared foods section (pretty much a restaurant). It offers quite a few nice options for breakfast at a moderate price. Nice atmosphere and good selection of upscale food and drinks to browse. It wasn’t overly busy either time we were... More

So many people told us about Mountain Fresh Grocery, that we just had to go there. So we went there for breakfast and it was quite a fascinating place. Kind of like a Fresh Market or mini Whole Foods on steroids. Geared toward people looking to eat and also get some upscale groceries. From what we saw, there was a... More

Step inside and you will see why this place is so popular. Their sandwiches and brunch items are fantastic. The hand tossed pizzas are excellent as well. Be prepared to be full when you leave. Don't miss their wine tasting bar and craft beers.

The food here is good, but just as expensive as several of the restaurants that we go to for lunch that I don't think we will wait in line 45 minutes too often. Best to go in between lunch and dinner, it seemed to clear out a little then.

This is the place to go in Hghlands, NC for breakfast. This is hardly a grocery any longer, althpugh you can buy basic groceries there. There are several resteraunts, wine bars and beer bars under the roof. Nice deli and pizzas too. If in Highlands, stop in for coffee from a large coffe menu or any meal. Check it out!

This is one of my favorite places to eat and shop when we go to Highlands, NC. There is a bakery, grill, deli, hot bar, wine and pizza options, and a small grocery area. In fact there is so much here that I always discover something new when I come. The food is good, decent food; I like the grilled... More
