Higher Grounds Café in Mount Joy can easily be missed but should not because the environment is so friendly and welcoming. The re-purposed facilities are connected with an atrium that might have been a shared backyard between two row homes. There are also many nooks at this coffeehouse, making it a great place to visit or conduct business. Coffee is... More

I have had iced coffee at dozens of coffee shops. Higher Grounds is my absolute favorite. We live in York, and are willing to make the drive just to get the iced coffee.

The chai latte there is comparable to Starbuck's, if not better! Small with a friendly atmosphere, my sister and I enjoy a light lunch there where we can sit and chat and enjoy the Chai as well as the quiche of the day.

Good drink choices but everything is expensive. Not many food for lunch or breakfast no eggs or pancakes or bacon or sausage. Drinks are the only thing I get. A drink will cost you $5 though one drink.

As always, the food and service was great! I had a chicken wrap, a decaf peppermint ice tea, and a chocolate chunk cookie, all of which were delicious. The sunny views of the outdoor trees and garden area were enjoyable to look at through the big glass windows. I definitely will go there again.

My wife says that they have the best coffee. The food menu is small but tasty. The ladies always have a smile.
