This cafe offers plenty of space and seating options and just has an all around great coffee shop atmosphere with people reading or working on their laptops. It is definitely worth a drop-in if you are exploring the Kensington Neighbourhood. They serve 100% organic and fair trade coffee and my favourite part for Harry Potter fans: they offer Butter Beer!

This Cafe has a great calm atmosphere and the drinks are delicious. It does get very busy during the rush hours so finding a table for friends can be tough. However most of the staff and customers are pretty nice and will most often share a table with you if you ask. It's a great place to study if you're a student as well.

Higher Ground Cafe is a great little spot in Kensington. Not too expensive and the foods great. It gets a little busy sometimes though

First to Review

Higher ground is an awesome hang out spot. It's a local spot where you can curl up to a book or work on your laptop. Things I love about HG:
Open late
Cozy cabin atmosphere
Noise levels are relatively low so you can have conversations with the person across from you
Great lattes, even better teas
**Free internet** although I connect wifi through starbucks
Chill counter service
Good food, great price and good portions
Massive cork board at the back with lots of community events notices

Easily a regular hang out spot, plus there's plenty of parking in the area.
