We are just sitting here and are so happy to have found such a place in La Paz! Coffee excellent as expected reading the reviews, BUT THE chocolate quinoa cake with chocolate custard is just orgasmic!

Top breakfast place. Just the art work on the coffee is worth more than one visit. Staff friendly and helpful.

The coffee here REALLY hit the spot after 2 weeks of bland instant coffee and Americanos throughout my travels in Peru. It was so good, I had to come here twice for breakfast/coffee during my time in La Paz. The vegemite, egg and cheese toasted...More

Higher Ground delivers the best of Bolivias, Coffees, Beers, Wines, Cheese and fresh produce. Open early we serve Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch Dinner plus an amazing range of Cheese Platters. Our Bolivian coffee beans are amongst the most sought after beans available. Higher Ground delivers that rich flavor known to particular coffee connoisseurs. We are so much more than a café - Our restaurant delivers a fusion of Bolivia with the West with foods to remind you of home. Our Coffee Beans are locally sourced from Caranavi, Yungas Valley. An área well recognized as one of the worlds best regions for high altitude coffee bean production. We have a great relationship with our café planation and roaster. Within hours of the beans freshly roasted we have them in our Italian built grinder. Few places in the world can deliver high altitude platation café beans this fresh!
