We decided to try high five out based on close proximity to our rental, good reviews, and it being locally owned. Baristas were friendly and fast. Excellent selection of teas from Dobra. The basic coffee was just ok. I think they really shine with their specialty drinks. Nice little selection of bagels, croissants, bars, and breakfast sandwiches. Cute place, very... More

We visited High Five Coffee during a snow day, so there weren't many people. However, they were the only coffee shop we could find that was open!

This is a good coffee shop that serves serves croissants and other snacks. The cubano is really good and the diablo is also great, if you like more spice in your life.

I like the alternative feel of some of the coffee shops in Asheville and, for that, this one is pretty good. Their lattes are good too. I like the fact that they are socially conscious and offer a basket of condoms at the counter and also have social issues posters near the door.

Really tasty coffee and cookies. Done with style and great service. Noticed the great local blends and local made fresh cookies and had to go back. Worth stopping in to get a great coffee fix morning or evening.

Great visit and we all had the baristas choice: the salty nut cappuccino. Delicious. The people watching was excellent and it was a nice space. The breakfast sandwiches looked good but we didn't try them

Love the coffee shop- cozy little place for our morning cup and a delicious bagel. We got a Chemex and a Cortado- both were on point. The service was great, friendly baristas 🙌🏻. (We went to the Rankin location.)
