Whenever I'm in Louisville and staying at my brother's home off of Bardstown Road we always go to Highland Coffee in the morning to hang out with the locals. Usually there are three choices of brew. Great coffee and good times! It's derby time right now and we had to get to the airport super early. HC was open and... More

I always go to Highlands Coffee when I'm in town, which is frequently. For a decaf drinker, taste is essential. What they do with a skinny latte is magical. It is full-bodied and delicious. I get the largest cup they offer, drink it until it's cold, then add ice to make an iced coffee. You'll be hooked too and get... More

It had been 4 years since I found this great coffee shop during a cross country trip. Another road trip, and I was so delighted to find Highland Coffee Co hadn't missed a beat! Great coffee, nice atmosphere, good tunes, and wonderful house made tempeh! Thanks for fueling me on my trip!

Highland coffee is one of my favorite coffee spots. Flavored coffee, kosher coffee, straight & strong, etc - what do you want cause they have it. But what makes this place really special is that they have a number of unique offers that I haven't seen anywhere else in Louisville. Flavored whipped cream made from scratch! Blackberry, chocolate, but the... More

Cool shop w easy parking in front. My husband and daughter reAlly enjoyed their lattes. Mine tasted just like steamed milk- they may have forgotten the expresso shot. I'd go back.

I loved my experience at Highland. We walked in to a bluegrass band playing which was totally unexpected and kind of nice. I had never been to Highland before and the guy at the counter was incredibly nice and even helpful when talking to us about the drink options. I ended up getting the Caramel Almond Royale iced with toasted... More

This place is the perfect coffee shop. Their selector of coffee is amazing (holy grounds personal favorite). They have a huge specialty coffee drink menu (bourbon whipped cream!!!). The food is wonderful, A LOT of gluten free and veggie options. I am addicted to their energy bars. The music and art there is always refreshing. Staff is kind. Always recommend... More

The coffee here was great! The people watching was also interesting. It was very crowded the day we went and there wasn't very many places to sit. The porch outside was a nice feature.

The service here is not as thrifty as Starbucks, but the coffee is way better and the staff is super friendly. We went out of our way to get coffee here as it was excellent.
