The coffee is always good and their flavor of the day drip coffee is my immediate go to unless it's too hot in which the kona frappachino is a must have. The service is fantastic and so friendly. There is plenty of seating and it provides a very chill atmosphere. I'm a student and it's my favorite coffee shop in... More

This coffee shop was well-worth the effort to find it, tucked into the corner of a strip mall with a Lowe's grocery store. The morning barista was so friendly too. Coffee is so good, we went twice in one day. Looked like a fun place for couples, families, and just to sit and bring a laptop by yourself.

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
