Last week, I took the opportunity to take a stroll in the beautiful spring weather and stop by Higher Grounds Star, located at 127 W. Berry St. in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne, IN. Not only was I greeted by a beautiful building and decor, but I was also greeted with great smiles and nice conversation with the owner, Scott Thrasher-Herndon. I had to know what the best sellers were and here’s what I found out: By the pound: Cinnamon Summer: Shoaff Shake Winter: Peppermint and Cinnamon Year-round: Pumpkin Latte (which other shops only offer in the fall) and The Zebra They are open Monday-Friday from 7am-5pm. Along with coffee (including Brews of the Day), espressos, smoothies and shakes (made with hand-dipped ice cream - it doesn’t get much better than that!), they also offer bagels, scones and a few other snack items. Whether you are on your way to work or if you need to ward off that 2 pm feeling, stop by Higher Grounds Star for the caffeine to make it through your day (and a smile to go with it). You can also check them out on Facebook.
