Wonderful!

We visit this little coffee shop every time we are in Port A. A good selection of coffees and teas. We had a Boar's Head ham and cheese croissant for breakfast on our last visit and it was delicious. But go in the evening and get some gelato. It's the perfect end to a perfect beach day. The... read more

There seems to be little competition for Coffee Waves in town judging by the line in the morning! The coffee is not spectacular but it does the job.

Coffee lovers -- come often; worth the wait. Just be careful what you expect when eating. They do not have that part down yet but the coffee and service are well done.

We waited over 40 min for 2 drinks. They were understaffed & my Americano was bitter. Just not another Choice on the island

Went here after seeing it on Texas Country Reporter. Food was good, and decor was incredibly welcoming and cozy. Service was so slow though, 5 different baristas and only 1 was taking orders, cashing people out and making the drinks. I understand they are on "island time" but would not wait again that long for a cup of coffee and... More

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.
