I no longer live in Boone, but my dad still does. On visits to Boone I always look forward to stopping in to High Grounds. The baristas are always kind and on their game and the coffee (no matter what I get) is always perfect!

Freshly ground coffee! Venti Vanilla latte was superb. (I got only 3 pumps of vanilla) Better than Starbucks caramel macchiato. I highly recommend this for your caffeine delight while in Boone.

Higher Grounds has a nice selection of coffee choices, and will customize whatever you would like them to do for you. Employees were friendly and very polite. Impressive! Coffee was just the right temperature and done to or requests and liking. For eats, a nice selection of muffins, scones, rolls, and many different flavored coffee beans.

Stopped here quickly on our way out of town, good drip coffee and mocha. Was hoping for a few more food options but there were muffins and cookies.

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!

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).
