Great espresso drinks here, but the brew doesn't match it's strength and flavor. Good people and a nice selection of treats.

As my title suggests we didn't have the intention of stopping here as we were actually looking for another coffee shop when we noticed this place. We decided to stop and give it a shot and I am sure glad we did. I had a blended mocha and a chocolate filled croissant, both of which were fantastic. The girl that... More

First time here and loved it. Wasn't sure going in due to the outside appearance but once inside it's a great cozy place to have a cup of coffee and the decor adds a nice ambience. They also serve sandwhiches, bagels and croissants. The Costa Rican Medium roast and chocolate croissant were supurb and staff was very pleasant.

The coffee was good, the food was great, and the staff was friendly. I got the Alpenglow breakfast sandwich, and it was sooo good that I decided to I better get a second one.... More

This locally owned coffee shop is AMAZING! Great location and has a nice patio to sit and enjoy your coffee and soak up the sun. I love that they get their coffee from local roaster (Rimini) - it's delicious!! Service is great, very friendly. Oh and their oatmeal and pastries are yummy!! Checkout the local art too displayed in the... More

I am so glad I happened past this place! My caramel apple chai was every bit as great as it sounds. The server was fast and friendly. This has everything I look for in an excellent coffee shop: great drinks and service, open on Sunday, a comfortable couch, pretty patio, chess game and books, plenty of business, good music (soft...

I felt like trying something new and was in the area. I arrived early in the morning and was first confronted by the worst parking lot. The Grand Canyon sized pothole at the entrance of the lot scraped the entire bottom of my car, only to be compounded with no place to park. I finally got through the door to... More

I read about Higher Ground Coffee in my local newspaper a few weeks ago. I am not a regular coffee drinker but I will splurge on occasion. While I am known to visit Starbucks, I prefer patronizing local shops when feasible. This little coffee shop is great!! The coffee was excellent (I had the White Chocolate Mocha Mint and it... More
