We were looking for a coffee shop and Annee from Latern Dancer suggested this shop. Had a little trouble actually finding it but it was worth every U-turn we took.

This place has coffee however you like it, but it also has foods that are delicious, and health conscious if that is your thing. There isn't much else to say about this coffee shop except you should try it at least once.

Cute coffee shop in uptown. Coffee has never been very good IMO, but they do offer some food that looks tasty.

Quality Lattes and talented Baristas. Ask for a Cubano. It's off the Menu but really good! And most of the baristas know how to make it excellently. Fast service, and friendly staff. Food menu is good too! We love their breakfast burritos, quiches, sandwiches and...More

As the town's longest running coffee house, Higher Grounds was established in 2004 with the goal of bringing the country's then-emerging craft coffee scene to the quaint mountain community of Pagosa Springs. Exclusively serving organic fair trade coffee, fresh in-house baked goods, and a curated selection of local beers & spirits, we continually strive to be THE destination for both locals and visitors.
