Was the only customer in the store and my order was not forthcoming after twenty minutes.When I questioned it, I was told in a rather snotty manner they were busy. Untrue, I let them know I was their only customer. Instead of "the customer is always right" she tried to argue with me. I am 66..she was all of 19...this... More

Great place for a lunch date. Paninis are excellent! And of course, the drinks are fabulous with a lot of friendly faces.

Coffee was top notch and the bagel was the best I ever put in my mouth! The entire family loved it. The Establishment was very clean and comfortable.

Nice coffee shop in Pagosa Lakes. Excellent food and all kinds of specialty coffee. Can get overrun with Wyndham guests at times so expect a bit of a wait for your order. Friendly and locally owned.

Love the staff and coffee. I come here at least twice a week to enjoy a latte! Prices are fair and I love the atmosphere and food. Wish they still sold crepes, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing about this place. Love it!

We ordered a bagel with cream cheese. We got a # to place on our table and waited...and waited... and waited. Finally, a customer asked us if we had ordered a couple of bagels. They were sitting on the counter (for who knows how long). The customer said they yelled out our order and left it on the counter. If... More

So sorry to hear about this experience, as the locals choice here in Pagosa Springs it is certainly not what we strive for nor is it typical. I have personally addressed this with the team on staff that day and hope that you do give us the opportunity to give you a better experience in the future. More

Great coffee even offers seasonal flavors, a must drop-by kind of place. The atmosphere was like your typical coffeehouse.

Higher Grounds is the place to go for breakfast and coffee/tea. The food is good and fresh. The service and friendly and the atmosphere is laid back casual. We go there almost everyday we are in Pagosa.

Consistently the best coffee that I have had. We stopped here several times on vacation and even my wife, who doesn't drink coffee, eventually began ordering coffee at each stop.
