Good coffee

Always love walking in there--smells so good with all the flavored coffee beans displayed. Staff was great, coffee delicious. Free wi-fi and comfy seating. We stop in there at least once every time we're in town.

The coffee was slightly above average. This shop also serves ice cream, but only 8 flavors, so the selection isn't great. I had the Mint Chocolate Chip, which was pretty good, but my husband had the Rainbow Sherbet, and he said it didn't have much flavor. The atmosphere is nice, as they have a couch and comfortable chairs, as well... More

This place had great coffee but was understaffed for a Sunday after church crowd. The poor girl was working alone but she never stopped smiling.

Higher Grounds always makes me the best sugar-free vanilla latte! Great people! I've visited many times and will visit many more!

Skip Starbucks while in Boone! Higher Grounds is wonderful. I have been frequenting this establishment for many years and the quality of everything I order is always consistently great. The owners, Matt & Gloria, are wonderful people who are usually there making my coffee and Sam is always nice and does a wonderful job. You must try Higher Grounds!!

I love this coffee shop hidden in a shopping center but worth finding. This is hands down one of the best coffee shops I have ever had coffee from. While the pastry selection is slim the coffee is EXCELLENT. The staff is helpful and very nice. They have a nice place to sit and relax with your coffee at cute... More

I love anything coffee flavored. I tried the mocha frappe and was not disappointed. They have sugar free syrups and will make drinks with skim milk on request. Would definitely go back.

When in Boone, skip Starbucks. We have many unique coffee shops and my favorite is Higher Grounds...for atmosphere, friendliness and most of all high quality coffee (and ice cream too!)

I had a nice iced coffee with a little bit of vanilla at Higher Ground. The barista, who was very nice and helpful, gave me the perfect amount of vanilla and milk in my coffee. It was so nice that I went up for a refill ($1 with the vanilla). The atmosphere was calm, quiet, and relaxing. Will definitely go... More
