After wrapping up a cold and rainy day on grandfather mountain, we were looking for a good spot to get some hot chocolate. Googled it and ended up here. They have Ghiradelli Hot Chocolate which my kids loved and I had the Ghiradelli Mocha which was fantastic. My boys also loved their ice cream and my wife and I enjoyed... More

Good coffee and great setting. Very relaxing and the aroma when you walk in makes you want to stay awhile.

Stopped in for coffee , which is good , but what a shabby coffee shop :-( Couch and chair furniture is torn , dirty , worn out , bathroom filthy with broken toilet seat . You'd think the owners , who are local, would care more about the appearance and upkeep of their business . If you care about the... More

I was in desperate need of decent coffee, having been exposed to swill at the hotel and in coffee shops in the area. I found this coffee shop near the hotel and it was the best part of my trip! The coffee was PERFECT! The people there actually knew how to make coffee! The lady who served me was kind... More

So it's not in the middle of downtown, but it is worth the couple extra miles. Great selection of beans. Only a couple of drip selections (which is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5).

Higher grounds is a great place to grab coffee. The staff are very helpful and help you customize your drink. My favorite drink is the chai latte is my favorite non-coffee drink from higher grounds.

The place has a very cool vibe (what place doesn't in Boone?). I was a bit overwhelmed with the coffee options so I went with my usual request when it's a coffee in the middle of the day: "Give me something strong over ice" I received an Americano that was exquisite and strong and cold. I inquired about the smoothies... More

My family and I stop at Highgrounds for a quick pick me up. They have perfect size smoothie for kids, they can also add sprinkles! The frapp often gets me through my day! Free WiFi, tables, chairs and couches. Great place to stop for a few minutes or sit and relax.

Higher Grounds has THE BEST Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte anywhere! I have ordered them at coffee shops all over NC and TN and am always disappointed because I am comparing them to Higher Grounds. I made the mistake of letting my teenage daughters try it and now they are hooked! Every day they want to go by and get one.... More
