We have eaten at The Grill at Mountain Fresh Grocery several times when visiting Highlands. This self service venue is always busy and always has new products to explore. My favorite sandwich is the Brie & Bacon with Fig Jam on Sourdough with housemate fries...More

This usually crowded spot is well worth the wait. Breakfast here is a treat. I would love to shake the hand of the woman running the egg station because she always turns out perfect eggs every time.

This is not your typical grocery store but one with a brick oven pizza offering, wine tasting bar, coffee roaster, backer and deli. We went for a casual dinner and had a great hamburger. The coconut cake was magnificent.

This is not just a supermarket. They offer the best breakfast and lunch around. If you need a nice bottle of wine or an olive oil you can get it here. They also offer the normal groceries and such.
