While I was in Placencia, I visited above grounds coffee shop a couple of different times. The coffee is reasonable and always hot. The staff are lovely and it is fun sitting up high, looking down on main street just to people watch and see...all the daily activities happening.More

Above Grounds is an excellent place to go for coffee and a small bite. The coffee is good and strong, and the pastries are very tasty with a different selection each time I went there. Be sure to go on Sunday for the cinnamon buns,...they were my favourite. Nice that you can sit on the balcony and watch the world go by, or if you want a quieter spot you can sit outside on the landing at the back.More

After a walk around the village a stop for coffee and a little something is always a good thing! Prices were reasonable and the deserts were fantastic.

We got coffee from here to go with street-vendor banana bread and also tried their toast with guava jam, which was yummy.

We love visiting Above Grounds while we are in Placencia where you wont find a chain coffee shop. Great coffee and tea drinks plus they have ground coffee to purchase to make your own. I always get a latte and we go to Above Grounds...every time we are in Placencia.More
