“Frog town is another fine winery that has been in the area for several years and has developed into a Napa Valleyesque looking setting. The wine is good and the views delightful. They also serve food, such as salads and sandwiches.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“This is a fun shop/grocery store! Stop in for an old-fashioned soda and one of their delicious, gigantic cookies, or just pick up a few groceries you might need (I wouldn't recommend going here if you need a lot of groceries, though... go to Ingles or Walmart instead). ”

Bakery
“A visit to Hofer's Bakery is a must on your visit to Helen! You can either get something from their pastry counter "to go," or you can eat at their sit-down restaurant. Both are great options, but do be aware that the restaurant doesn't do the typical "take your name and call you" thing like most restaurants. You stand in line and wait until a table opens up; they move people through pretty quickly, but if it's a busy time of year, you may want to arrive early!”

“This is connected to Paul's Margarita deck and has a nice "fancier" type vibe. We had surf n' turf there and it was excellent! Later in the evening, they card you and it turns into a nightclub vibe with a dance floor. Very fun and a great meal!”
