“better than STARBUCKS!!! a MUST for coffee lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

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 tables and there is some soft seating as well. Please stop in and support this local business!! I will be stopping every time I am in "the high country"

“Awesome Frappe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

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.

“Favorite Coffee shop in Boone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

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!)

“Kind and relaxing coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

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 back.

“Great Frappe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Caramel Frappes are excellent here. Free wifi is fast and it's usually quiet enough to get some work done if you need to. The people are nice and the service is good. Lots of parking.
