SUPER Yummy

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!

Hidden in a strip mall exterior, Coffee Waves is a cozy and comfortable coffee lounge. Coffee drinks are expertly made, if a little slow. We didn't try the gelato, but the many flavors looked amazing. A couple of guys were playing their guitars when we visited on Saturday afternoon. Great vibe!

It may have just been a busy time each time we came, but there was a huge line and they were on "island time." About 10-15 mins to get a cup of coffee. It was tasty, but I wouldn't got there again unless I was planning on lounging about there.

Coffee Waves did not look on the inside how I expected it to look. The outside looks contemporary like the inside will be bright and a little boring but it is quite the opposite. The inside has a very lounge like feel to it with dark brown sofas and a few tables. There are some fun art pieces throughout the... More

The chill sufer vibe presents itself in a classy but casual atmosphere. The coffee drinks are delicious and perfectly done, and there are different flavors of gelato every day-they're all delicious! The comfortable chairs are great to relax in while you enjoy the coffee and log on to the free wi-fi. This is a great place for work, study, or... More

Coffee Waves has some great coffee, and gelato; but the service was extremely slow. If you don't mind waiting, go! The prices were a little on the high side too.

OK, so maybe I'm a coffee snob, but I just can't do convenience store, and fast food coffee. Enter Coffee Waves... a great little slice of coffee heaven in Port A. All the normal faves, plus a few of their own concoctions... you gotta try the shot in the dark (a dark roast coffee with a shot of espresso. YUM!).... More

Enjoyed a great mocha...Perfectly balanced flavor. The Andes Mint gelato was some of the best gelato I've ever had. Nice atmosphere with live acoustic guitar / singer. Sign says they have the live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Very nice coffee shop.
