The iced tea is amazing. Various changing flavor combinations. The locally made doughnuts are great as well as the chocolate popsicles!

This place is a gem! We loved their coffee (may be the first coffee that hasn't given me the jitters) and their homemade jams with toast. Enjoy their patio to people watch too.

Above Grounds Coffee has established a direct connection with small independent farmers in Guatemala. Hand-picked, processed & roasted by small family operations. Their 100% mountain grown and 100% Arabica coffee beans are shade grown, hand-picked and then processed to organic standards. All fields meet elevation requirements for Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) grade and some meet the Fancy (F) grade. These two top grades (Fancy and SHB) total less than 2.5% off all coffee produced globally!
