Stumbled upon Higher Grounds while we were waiting to see a movie. They are hidden in a shopping center store front, and rather unassuming from the outside. The staff was very warm and friendly. I had a latte and my son had a machiato and both were very well done, smooth and without any bitter taste, I could have done... More

I had to run to the pharmacy there in the shopping center and I decided to grab a couple of drinks for my wife and I. She had the White Chocolate Mocha (which she seemed to enjoy thoroughly) and I just had a basic decaf latte. Wonderful service and nice taste to the drinks cause me to give this place... More

Does not have the hip, coffee scene vibe I like. An ice cream bar near the counter was rather off putting to me. I like a coffee shop that is all about the coffee. Ordered a raspberry truffle latte. Not too sweet. Good balance of expresso and flavoring. Large cup and definitely cheaper than Starbucks. Place is tucked into a... More

Great coffee shop with wonderful owners that know how to make a place cozy and relaxing. Would like a little better selection of treats but what they have is fresh and not pre frozen.

Called in quite late to this little gem and ordered drinks. Despite being late the welcome was perfect and efficient. The Mochas were perfect. Not too sweet well balanced between chocolate and coffee. They all sell roasted beans which gives a great smell when walking into the shop. Definitely a place to go

Higher grounds is excellent coffee place to visit! They have fresh coffee beans and friendly staff. Abigail was my barista and she did a phenomenal job! She is very bubbly and friendly and hopefully when you come she will be there. Higher grounds offers lots of options and you can create your favorite coffee. Inside the coffee shop there's room...

The coffee is always good and their flavor of the day drip coffee is my immediate go to unless it's too hot in which the kona frappachino is a must have. The service is fantastic and so friendly. There is plenty of seating and it provides a very chill atmosphere. I'm a student and it's my favorite coffee shop in... More

This coffee shop was well-worth the effort to find it, tucked into the corner of a strip mall with a Lowe's grocery store. The morning barista was so friendly too. Coffee is so good, we went twice in one day. Looked like a fun place for couples, families, and just to sit and bring a laptop by yourself.
