Higher Grounds was a surprise. It was a pleasant one. I did not get a coffee in this location, as I discovered it on a cold, rainy night. I got an almond milk tumeric chai latte. It was exactly what I needed. Upon arrival, I thought it would be a grab and go location.
I was devastated as soon as I walked in because it was so cool. I wanted to stay forever. The vibe was cozy. There were comfortable chairs set up, it was quiet and students were littered around the place studying and hanging out. It was as if you’d stumbled into your grandma’s house and immediately felt that warm homey feeling grandmas give. The chairs were odd, the walls were weird and everything fit perfectly.
