We've been to Higher Grounds quite a few times over the last few years. They're easy to find with plenty of parking. It's right in the center of the main part of Idyllwild. The coffee is good...not fabulous, but good. They have seating inside and out. The inside areas are usually full but we've almost always found a place to sit outside. That's enjoyable to watch people walking around town and nature but cigarette smoke does waft through from time to time from other guests. I tried to order a cold drink the last time I was there but they were out of several choices. I ended up getting iced, black tea but it was not good and it was cloudy (weird)...I won't order that again. But, I will probably go back for coffee again. Although, I did notice this last time that there are some more coffee shop choices up there now to try.
