Always packed with friendly locals & travelers up for the weekend. Love ❤️ their breakfast. I am headed up again this morning for eggs, corn beef hash, & bacon. Nice wine shop. They are knowledgeable & helpful. Bought 6 bottles yesterday. They are a grocery, eatery, pizzeria, wine shop, & bakery. Never miss Mountain Fresh when I go to Highlands!

We have always enjoyed eating at mountain fresh, especially in the winter months when the lines are not as long. Everything is prepared fresh! Today I had their blackened salmon sandwich special and it was delicious. Several great beers on draft to enjoy with lunch as well.

This is a great little find. Breakfast and lunch are awesome. Grab a glass or bottle of wine. Like to sit at the coffee bar and enjoy an afternoon expresso.

I'm crazy about Mountain Fresh. Think Fresh Market with grille/deli/bakery/pizza place. Each has its own area and you can pay at any of the checkouts located throughout. We had a truly good New York style pizza with a fresh salad built from the salad bar across the store. I was very favorably impressed by the place.

This has to be the best place to eat in Highlands. Great variety of salad choices as well as grill choices. The grilled hamburger and fries were great. We took a pizza home for dinner and is was ok? Overall this is the only place we will eat in Highlands!

we ordered pizza and while it was cooking we went to the wine section and selected our wine for dinner. You buy the wine and they furnish the glasses and you take the rest with you. It was really a neat little place.

My friends and I stop by Mountain Fresh at least once on our annual girls trip. We always enjoy the food at mountain fresh; it is prepared when we order and in a timely manner. The pizzas are delicious as are the Panini sandwiches and burgers. A great selection of wines, cheese, and other grocery items are available and the... More

We often visit our cottage on Lake Rabun and drive a half hour to the Mountain Fresh Grocery for lunch; they have a great soup, salad, and hot bar for $10. It was so good on Tuesday, we went back Wednesday, and we're talking about going again tomorrow (Friday)!
