The variety of food was wonderful. The soups were great. I loved the black eyed peas soup. The hot and cold bar was worth the price!

Thank God to Mountain Fresh from providing variety in the small town of Highlands. The pancakes were delicious at breakfast and so was the St. Party's dinner. It's a bit price, but affordable for Highlands ;)

Great little piece of the community. Had a quick breakfast/coffee and grabbed a couple sandwiches for our hike during lunch. Good food! They even made a surprise birthday cookie cake for my wife's 30th. Good service

This market offers a large selection of prepared foods and deli style items, sandwiches, ice cream, coffee,and similar items. They have an extensive selection of wine, craft olive oils, specialty meats and the like. Although you can find some basic grocery items, it's more of a specialty store. I was not a fan of its layout as you don't realize... More

Enjoyed meals here twice in one week it was so good. Get the coffee shake and the fig & pig pizza..they were my favorites but everyone in our group loved their meals. Quality and fresh meals and groceries in a very small town, but reasonably priced. Love this place!!!

My wife and I are in Highlands a half dozen times a year and always stop there for awesome food and great service. You can't do any better than Mounain Fresh for casual dining or those special items you want to take home.

Always packed with friendly locals & travelers up for the weekend. Love ❤️ their breakfast. I am headed up again this morning for eggs, corn beef hash, & bacon. Nice wine shop. They are knowledgeable & helpful. Bought 6 bottles yesterday. They are a grocery, eatery, pizzeria, wine shop, & bakery. Never miss Mountain Fresh when I go to Highlands!

We have always enjoyed eating at mountain fresh, especially in the winter months when the lines are not as long. Everything is prepared fresh! Today I had their blackened salmon sandwich special and it was delicious. Several great beers on draft to enjoy with lunch as well.

This is a great little find. Breakfast and lunch are awesome. Grab a glass or bottle of wine. Like to sit at the coffee bar and enjoy an afternoon expresso.

Thank TSK12
