Great coffee

The coffee here was great! The people watching was also interesting. It was very crowded the day we went and there wasn't very many places to sit. The porch outside was a nice feature.

The service here is not as thrifty as Starbucks, but the coffee is way better and the staff is super friendly. We went out of our way to get coffee here as it was excellent.

Right behind Urban Outfitters this is a great place to start your day. Funky but accessible and hip but not too hip for the room. I would go back.

Out of the way for me but yet another great coffee shop in Louisville. Those who work behind the counter are usually pretty friendly. Try out one of their breakfast wraps, they are pretty darn good too.

I'm a big fan of a great coffee shop, and this place has so much potential. Maybe we caught it on an off day, but there was no conversation in the restaurant. Everyone was on a laptop or phone, whereas I'm used to coffee houses with bustling activity and great conversation.

Tried this place for the first time and was impressed. Many different choices to choose from. There were three in my party and everyone loved their order. The coconut cream freeze is out of this world along with their flavored whip creams. I always wondered why coffee shops didn't offer this as an option. If you are looking for a... More

Coffee was bitter to us. We drink our coffee black. We will try a cafe Americano next time to see if the different processing improves the taste of the coffee. We liked the casual, comfortable nature of the shop.

I would have to give coffee quality to Sunergos. But as for having a fun, warm environment coffee shop, Highland Coffee is the best. Some reasons I like this place so much... *It's awesome to come and relax, study, conversate. *They make the BEST Swiss Yerba Mate's. No one else can make them close. Honestly. *The atmosphere is nice year... More

Highland Coffee is one of the warmest coffee chop I have ever visited. Not weather warm, just family friendly warm. If there is a line the staff promptly moves to the line to take orders. The flavored coffee selection is always changing, which I prefer. I have tried many of the unusual flavors and like them all.

I love Highland Coffee. The baristas are helpful - just tell them what you are in the mood for and let them take it from there. You won't be disappointed, I never have been. I just wish this place was closer to me. Definitely one of the places I miss after moving out to the suburbs! Oh and they make... More
