Get the chai!!

The iced chai tea with a shot of espresso is legendary. I'll be dreaming about it until we can come back. Is it bad to have more than 1 per day?

We love this place. We come to Port A every summer and Coffee Waves is a must stop before we leave. This place is what Starbuck's wants to be.

We stopped here twice on this visit. The first time I got gelato, which was excellent. The second time they were delayed in getting the gelato area set up and only had a few flavors available (not the ones I wanted), so I passed. Even though this was a tiny bit frustrating, I would stop again next time I am... More

Surprisingly good. Got into town late. Coffee Waves was open until 10 pm. Purchased their brand of roasted coffee beans. My group also purchased gelatos - great variety and very good. Friend who works at a coffee shop in purchased a macchiato and said it was better than he could make. They also had a nice menu of sandwiches.

This is a very nice place with an excelent variety of coffee drinks and teas. It is very nicely decorated with comfy chairs and sofas. The minute you walk in you get inmersed in the aroma of coffee beans and ust have to decide what are you going to order. The wait is a little log but worth every minute!

The gelato was good and the coffee too. But the place was very dirty. I had to take my son into the restroom to change him and it was disgusting.

I stopped by while killing some time. The ambience of the place is very inviting. There are tables as well as many couches and comfy chairs. The wait time is a little long but the coffee was good. I didn't eat anything but noticed others and the food looked fresh. They also sell coffee beans. They have a great sign... More

Really good. It's a great place to study, too. Towards the back they've got comfy chairs and sofas, and then they've got tables and chairs towards the front. They've also got gelato. Keep in mind, if you go during peak times (spring break and summer) the line can be very long....
