If you are a mile or two from the intersection of NC 209 and 63, and are really hungry, then by all means go to the Trust General Store. Otherwise, I think you will be really disappointed if you takes side trip like we did....More

I needed a snack and walked into a very sweet store with local art that stopped me in my tracks. Found exactly what I wanted and things I didn't even know I wanted. I will come back!!!

We were staying at an AirBnB in the area and had dinner at this delightful store/restaurant with a very authentic feel. Service was very friendly and the food was really tasty. Worth a visit!

Waitress/Cashier (Danielle) very friendly and polite. Loved her accent, the food, the hominess. Very nostalgic. You could pick up almost anything from plumbing supplies, to clothes, to ice cream to have a meal. Nice experience.
