This place have some great coffee! Starbuck wasn't good enough for me ever since I tried this place. I love the fact that any specialty drink I order actually have coffee taste and not just milk and syrup. Definitely my favorite place to grab coffee with my friends since the inside decor is pretty "homey". Give them a shot!

You can find coffee anywhere and this is just another place to get it. The atmosphere inside is nice but the product itself is just like you would get anywhere else.

I love to stop at Higher Grounds for an awesome cup of coffee. I am often on my way to a work assignment or it may be for a mid afternoon slump. The smell is divine and the service always prompt and friendly.

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
