The chai latte there is comparable to Starbuck's, if not better! Small with a friendly atmosphere, my sister and I enjoy a light lunch there where we can sit and chat and enjoy the Chai as well as the quiche of the day.

As privately owned, small town coffee shops go, this one is a great place to meet with friends or colleagues. I was here recently with two associates to discuss partnerships. The coffee and iced tea were good. There is much more seating available inside than appears would be from the outside. Colors and atmosphere are bright and welcoming. Staff was... More

Good drink choices but everything is expensive. Not many food for lunch or breakfast no eggs or pancakes or bacon or sausage. Drinks are the only thing I get. A drink will cost you $5 though one drink.

As always, the food and service was great! I had a chicken wrap, a decaf peppermint ice tea, and a chocolate chunk cookie, all of which were delicious. The sunny views of the outdoor trees and garden area were enjoyable to look at through the big glass windows. I definitely will go there again.

My wife says that they have the best coffee. The food menu is small but tasty. The ladies always have a smile.

The coffee is very good, staff is super friendly, and atmosphere is warm and perfect for conversations. The food is very good too, they have a variety of breakfast items-including quiche-and breads/pastries. Be sure to bring cash...my only complaint about this adorable place!

I first went to Higher Grounds with a friend to catch up and grab a cold brew. Little did I know this would turn in to a new favorite coffee spot. The options for iced coffee are endless and the menu is small for food, but all looked delicious. The staff is so friendly and have great recommendations. The service... More
