I promise that this place will not disappoint. Mountain Fresh is a truly unique store. I'm not sure you can call it a grocery store. This place has it all. Fresh pizza, awesome salad and food bar. Craft beers on tap, a barista, vast wine...More

Wonderful pizza, bottled olive oils and vinegars - great wine selection, and looks like a great coffee bar and beer tasting venue

Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert... it's all available at Mountain Fresh Grocery. We went twice during our four day visit to Highlands. You can eat there or pick up anything you'd need for cooking in your cabin, including prepared salads, meats, and veggies.

Great place for coffee and breakfast. Stayed at OEI but walked down here for breakfast every morning. Fantastic 'homemade' breakfast items. Friendly staff. Thank goodness for this place as without it, options aren't great.

I gave this place a rave review about a month ago. Returned with additional family and found the salmon to be overcooked and flavorless. It was a special for that night. The chicken tenders were ok but not as good as the first time. Very...More

This is a great place for a quick meal with family and/or friends. The food is of excellent quality. Love the hamburgers and the pizza. Also, had excellent homemade chicken salad on the 4th of July. Also, excellent ice cream!

It's not everyday that you have the option to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at your local grocery but I was pleasantly surprised. The food is amazing as well as the service. Wish I had a place like this in my home town...
