The Trust General Store, established in 1986, shows up in a bend along NC-209. It's a curvy road that, unto itself, is a lot of fun to explore. And at about the 15-mile mark south of Hot Springs, Trust General Store (and Cafe), is a welcome stop.

The store sits isolated alongside the highway, wedged between the little road and a little creek behind the store. Rocking chairs line the porch inviting all to sit a spell and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Inside, what began all those years ago as a grocery store and diner has evolved into more of a general merchandise spot spiked with wonderful locally-crafted items, too.
And then of course, there's the cafe.
Choose from a variety of American-style sandwiches and salads including familiar favorites like the BLT or their fried chicken to their signature Spicy Pig, which is pulled pork with a bit of spice.
