Higher Grounds is a great small town coffee shop. Coffee is always great. In my book, it is second only to Folklore in Etown (which has better hours, takes debit cards instead of only cash, has wifi-I think, and has better comfy seating). But that being said, I visit here often, and if you're near Mount Joy it's a great... More

Bright, comfortable, hang out do work and sip nice beverages sort of place. Tomato spinach quiche was tasty. Cash only, no wifi, but this is Mt Joy not Philly right?

A quaint awakening cafe. Love the decor. It's a daughter and mom establishment. Everyone on staff is very friendly. I like her coffees way better than main stream brand name. Iced coffee in so many varieties. Just ask Ashley to surprise you and you will not be disappointed. I have had coconut, salted Carmel, mocha, toffee nut and the mix... More

Love this place!! Family run and they know what they are doing! Coffee is perfect everyday and pastries are wonderful without being too overpriced; cash only, so come prepared; haven't tried menu selections

My first thought when walking in was that this place is cluttered and tiny. I saw they have organic coffee so I ordered that with steamed milk and cinnamon and hazelnut syrup. I love that they use Monin syrups which contain only pure cane sugar. I proceeded to the back room where I saw more tables and realized there are... More

I frequently go here to meet friends and get a great Mocha Latte. It's relaxing and has several good - and very different - areas to choose from for your seating. Then they let you alone to chat on and on! The prices are a little high, but service is good and drinks and food are tasty. Try the Baked... More

We stopped in on our way out of town and were so glad we did! Very cute little shop and my frozen coffee frappa-whateva is probably the best one I've ever had. Husbands mocha was good, and the kids berry smoothie was also delish. Would definitely return.

Higher Grounds has some of the most friendliest staff in Lancaster County!! When you go in you usually find a line because the drinks, sandwiches and soups are delicious and everyone wants to eat there. It's a cozy place to come with friends and chat and have a mouth watering "mocha mountain freeze". You can sit and talk to the... More
