This place doesn't have any competition on the island, but it is a very suitable stop for those hooked on Starbucks. The frozen hot chocolate and dark chocolate Mocha were good as any. Very nice Barista also.

Every time I visit Port Aransas, I have to stop here. Every person working here is friendly and nice. Took my father-in-law last visit and now he goes here all the time. Best relaxing, safe hang out place.

My wife and I spend a week in Port Aransas in April and another week in October every year. We go to Coffee Waves almost every day. Great atmosphere to sit and read or browse or update your Facebook page with your latest pictures from the beach. Serious coffee drinks. Definitely try the "Chai Train," a unique blended ice drink.... More

I have been here 3-4 times last couple years and have never really enjoyed the coffee, kinda a weird after taste and not smooth. This last time, it was a Saturday and looked like they were significantly understaffed and line was to the door. Only one person was making drinks, yikes! They do have a tasty and wide variety of...

My family and friends and I visited Coffee Waves on Port A. I had a Vanilla Latte. It was okay but I had to add cinnamon and sugar, as did my son. My youngest had Salted Caramel Gelato and said it was delicious. The atmosphere is awesome, but the food and drinks a bit pricey. A perfect place to chill... More

Our barrista was good - nice latte w/ art in the am. Also recommend the affogato which is a shot of espresso over a scoop of gelato for an afternoon snack.

Great coffee (both hot and cold)! Delish sandwiches (the turkey with avocado and pesto was amazing)! Awesome gelato! Friendly staff! Can I say more?

Brought the kids in for gelato on the way out of town. Great variety, great service, great atmosphere, great gelato....wish I could have curled up with a book and blanket and listened to the rain (sans kids).

I cant speak for the coffee, but the gelato here is great. There are many unique flavors to choose from. The buildings exterior is deceiving, as the interior is a cool coffee shop look. Make sure you choose the samples you want wisely, only two samples per person!
