Higher Grounds Coffee Bar Open
for Patio Service

Welcome back to our patio! We are open for beverage service on our patio with adjusted hours:

Monday-Friday 8 AM-3 PM

Saturday 9 AM-3 PM

Sunday 9 AM-1 PM

ORDER ONLINE

We are currently only accepting online drink orders in order to ensure the most safe and sanitary environment for both you and our staff. Our new ordering system will track purchases so you can earn rewards for drinks, beans and other products. Use the QR code below or just click here to view our menu. 

NOTE OUR NEW WINDOWS!

We have two new transactional windows: one on the left for picking up your drink after ordering online, and one on the right for browsing our retail merchandise and packaged coffee, or to chat with a barista at at safe distance.

 

WEAR YOUR MASK TO PICK UP DRINKS

We require all guests to wear a mask covering your mouth and nose unless you are seated at your table. Our patio is measured to ensure tables are six feet apart and placed away from where you'll form a line to order. Our logo appears on the ground to indicate where to stand while waiting for your coffee. Help us keep our community safe and healthy!

 

WE'VE GOT NEW "MUGS" FOR NOW

In accordance with health department guidelines, all drinks are served in compostable cups. They will compost in a backyard compost pile, but that takes some time. They will not decompose in the trash. If you leave them with us, they will be commercially composted.

 

OUR ROASTERY TEAM IS STILL BUSY
Our production staff is still roasting, packaging, and shipping coffee, and we have taken careful steps to ensure safety in our facility, in accordance with CDC and Grand Traverse County Health Department guidelines.

Another great way to support HG and keep your coffee mugs full at home is to order packaged coffee online. We can ship anywhere in the continental U.S. and are offering free home delivery in our local area when you choose "Doorstep Delivery" at checkout.
