  • One of the best Latte's in the city!
  • Soy chai latte. Best thing other than nutella!
  • As a local coffee shop to meet up in, I love Higher Ground. It is open late, the complex drinks are sweet and delicious and most of the staff are pretty cool.
  • The Fujian edamame is my favorite. Or, try an Italian soda with cherry and vanilla, or rasberry and vanilla, or lime and vanilla. It tastes like a creamscicle!
  • Sit next to the firepalce and relax. The flatbread dip is awesome.
  • Really good tea!
  • Love the crowd who comes here. Great joint for group outings and study sessions. No one will judge that crazy laugh of yours.
  • Get the smoothie , it's so good
  • Check out Michael Sturgeon's fine art photography displayed for the month of January 2013. More info at sturgeonmd.blogspot.ca

  • The Cafe Rolo is to die for, but beware your growing waistline as a result.
  • This place feels like 'Tales from the City'
  • The Snow Dragon drink is AMAZING!!! Saturday evenings are the best time to come in and write.
  • Coffee is great, sandwiches are weak
  • Go to Higher Ground on the last wednesday of the month for the Acoustic Jam sessions. Order yourself a Steamwhistle and relax.
  • The baked goods taste like they're from Safeway or Costco and their coffee and chai latte tastes like dirty water. They have seating, wifi and bathroom though...
  • Delicious coffee! Havent tried anything but the regular dark roast but its pretty good.
  • Great hot chocolate!
  • Lots of great specialty coffee and tea options. I was only in town for the day and wished I could try them all!
