I like this old store. The setting is lovely. The store has a nice variety of merchandise. This entire area (Sautee Nacoochee) was so nostalgic and peaceful. It was a great getaway from city life. The staff of the store was so friendly.

The old sautee store is a unique old fashioned establishment. The outside and the entrance have been preserved in the manner of the 1930s. It is authentic and very interesting. Inside there are a variety of treats, the most wonderful is the Swiss cheese and...More

I had a pimento cheese sandwich and the roasted red pepper and gouda soup. It rates up there with possibly obe of the best lunches that I have ever had.

The Frieds have not owned the store since around 2000. Unfortunately they both passed away many years ago. Galen and Jean Greene have owned the store since 2003.
