Higher Grounds Coffee Bar & Roastery

Higher Grounds Coffee Bar & Roastery

Higher Grounds offers organic, fairly-traded coffee from coffee growers around the world, roasted in small batches five days a week and served in our adjacent Coffee Bar. HG is located in the historic Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a former state mental hospital, home to one of the nation's largest historic adaptive reuse projects. A beautiful solution to urban sprawl, the Village is comprised of completed and in-progress renovations of the buildings that once comprised the Traverse City State Hospital, formerly the Northern Michigan Asylum. In addition to now being home to independent boutiques, artisan shops and restaurants, the 63-acre site is an oasis of natural beauty, with hiking trails, artesian springs, arboreta and community gardens. We're housed in what was formerly the asylum's laundry facility, a beautiful and funky high-ceilinged warehouse saturated with natural light. We share this building with Left Foot Charley, Traverse City's only in-town winery and tasting room.
