Great visit and we all had the baristas choice: the salty nut cappuccino. Delicious. The people watching was excellent and it was a nice space. The breakfast sandwiches looked good but we didn't try them

Great little coffee spot downtown. Took the grandkids here for hot cocoa. Never disappointed. Fresh food and goodies.

Love the coffee shop- cozy little place for our morning cup and a delicious bagel. We got a Chemex and a Cortado- both were on point. The service was great, friendly baristas 🙌🏻. (We went to the Rankin location.)

Us Aussies are fussy about our coffee so generally stick to Starbucks because they are consistent. High Five is out of the way for a walking tourist (saw people with take away coffee and asked where) We'll be back here tomorrow for another round. Their coffee, ambiance and friendliness is 1st class and can't recommend highly enough.

Met someone there for a business chat over coffee. First time visit. Atmosphere is hip and energetic with excellent vibe. Coffee was outstanding. If you are looking for a great spot to stop for some coffee during your stroll around Asheville, High Five is a good one!

Loved this place! Ample seating and great coffee was met with a smiling face and cool atmosphere. Quick service and I walked out the door with a tasty latte on a cool Saturday morning. Most pleased we stopped by!

Got cappuccino. Was the best thing I've ever tasted. Not the the best coffee; the best anything. Period. No joke. But I don't live in Asheville so I'll never get cappuccino this good again. Kinda tragic.

We got coffee from High Five in Asheville one morning. The drinks were just above average and the prices were a little high. Service was really average. I like to support local shops, but it was nothing special.

This is a really nice downtown coffee shop. People are in & out all day long. There are always people sitting doing their computer work which is ok during quiet times, but when you want to sit & eat & can't find a place to sit because everyone is using it as their office....it can be annoying. Otherwise, the place... More

The staff here must absolutely hate their jobs, didn't get one smile out of them the entire time! The coffee was a little burnt too.

Thank Hanni T
