Lunch was great. Prices an little high but food is good so didn't mind paying a little more. Husband sandwich was grilled a little too much, he said was good. Stopped by after a crazy busy Memorial Day Biker Rally. Clean and friendly place

We fell on this little place when we were driving through Red River. You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. The friendliness and service of the staff was wonderful. It was a small town atmosphere where many of the customers were local and known by the owners. They gave us samples of the soup... More

We stopped here based on Trip Advisor reviews. They didn't get our order correct, then overcharged us for what we did get. When we pointed it out, we got a small refund, but still felt overcharged. Food was just OK.

Right in town with super friendly staff. We stopped in for lunch and as soon as we walked in were greeted with a smile. They have a good menu with sandwiches, salads, soup, and a huge baked potato. Most menu items are under $10 a person so very reasonable. Portions are a good size too. We didn't purchase any of... More

Mountain Treasurers is an easy walk from the ski lifts and in the middle of Main Street. The Rubin sandwich was excellent. We got cinnamon rolls for breakfast that were great. It closes at 6:00 PM so don't go there for dinner. This staff is very friendly and helpful. You order at the counter where the bakery goods are.

$15 for small cup of soup, 1/2 chicken salad sandwich and drink. The food was good but not worth the money. Baked goods were priced well and excellent. Will go back for bakery items but not lunch. Staff was friendly and food delivered to table quickly.

Thanks so much for your response. Whether positive or negative we value our customer's opinions. Our 12 oz. cup of Homemade Soup & Sandwich Combo sells for 9.99, a Beverage with a refill is 1.99. That adds up to just 11.98 not 15.00. We hope you enjoyed a pastry or another bakery item which could bring the total up. While... More

If you want a simple, delicious, and budget friendly option for lunch, this is the place to go. They make delicious sandwiches, great tea, and have free refills. It is a pleasant setting to be in, with caring people running the joint. I have not had breakfast but it looks fantastic. Will be back.

We had a great lunch at this friendly spot. The server was very friendly and helpful. I had the homemade soup and half a sandwich and it was plenty. All the ingredients were fresh and high quality. It's informal and quaint. The bakery items looked very enticing although we did not try. Enjoy!

Mountain Treasures has a huge menu of wonderful homemade soups, made-to-order deli sandwiches (like ruebens, chicken-fried steak sandwiches and muffalettas)on fresh, "housemade" baked breads. The delightful smell of Kolaches, cinnamon rolls, turnovers, and cookies flow through the whole place and you may find them hard to turn down! Entrees include fried chicken with fries & Texas toast as well as catfish with hush puppies & fries. Our coffee shop serves steaming cappuccinos, lattes, and fresh house coffee as well as fresh-fruit smoothies. We've proudly served visitors and locals for 12 years on Main Street right in the middle of town across from the Community House.
