We felt very uncomfortable today because the person taking orders had a terrible cough. I watched this person cover coughs with the hand, pick up food for delivery, and never saw a hand washing in the 30 minutes we were here.

I feel so bad that you had to write a review like this, but I totally agree! This person was sent home as soon as we realized she should never have come in to work in the first place. It was poor judgement on her part to come in, and a "late call" on our part sending her home. I'm... More

This is a piece of history that both educates and provides great food and shopping. Their Farmer's cheese is wonderful --- samples served daily. The entire front room will take you back generations to the old country store. Great deli next door to the store.

An interesting old store - you walk through the old store area into a new shop which is well lit and nicely laid out. Prices seemed a bit high. I had heard that they sell a delicious Farmers Cheese but left without being offered the sample or the opportunity to buy - perhaps because I did not fit the "older... More

Oh gosh! I am so sorry you did not sample our Farmer Cheese. It is delicious and we have someone set up to sample it all day long--to EVERYONE--of every age!!! I hope that our person was away for just a minute helping to answer a question, or resupplying, etc which of course does happen in the course of the... More

Better store in Helen, Nora Mill. Old Sautee did have clothes if needing clothes. Not much of a nostalgia store

You step back in time when you walk inside the doors. The store section is connected directly behind the older historic part of the store. Found some adorable clothing and loved browsing through some very unique items. Highly recommend stopping here if visiting the area!

The store has a small museum as you first enter and there are such interesting items on display. I watched two elderly men reminiscing about all the old tools on display. The rest of the store is bright and cheerful with wonderful selections of things to buy. Right next door is a deli with sandwiches and cold drinks

We visited Helen in October- probably their peak season. It was crowded and busy. It was the first time in a long time that I've been bothered by the prevalence of cigarette smoke. Based on an online review, we left Helen and drove five miles east to the intersection that is Sautee Nacoochee. The entrance to the old general store... More

This is an OK place for a quick sandwich lunch. Great cheese on deli sandwich. Very limited seating.

Going to the Old Sautee Store is so very much like having a picnic in the aspect that you get the warm welcoming environment. You can eat in doors or outdoors and it is all prepared or made to order to your liking. You can go there and find a delightful variety of sandwiches and things and a quaint gift... More

The front is original with even an old time video - well not called that maybe picture show - the back has great items like a cheese to die for that you can sample - next door is their sandwich shop - made fresh to order -
