There were so many choices to make, both for breakfast and for coffee. We couldn't decide so ended up having eggs, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, AND pastries! I even tried two different coffee blends. The croissants are a must have. Everything was fantastic!

A must visit in Highlanfs, whether for breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner, or just dessert. The heart of Highlands. Great business model.

Great store similar to whole Foods but a lot more casual. Supplies food to several high end restaurants. Great wine selection. Opened during the snowstorm. Roasts own coffee and has a bakery. Delicious food.

This place is an experience in itself. Not only a cool grocery store but also a deli and buffet. Also serves all sorts of drinks. Everything we got was tasty and unique.

We had wonderful sandwiches. There are so many choices of sandwiches, soup and salad, and hot dinners the only hard part was making a decision. The sandwiches we had are actually very memorable! They have a very talented chef.

We had been hiking on some of the trails near Highlands when my brother suggested popping in here for a pizza or burger. Well this was Black Friday and Highlands was packed. We actually lucked out and found a place right in front to park....More
