Great food and coffee, realllly slow service

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.

Have been to this place a few times now. Love the gelato, especially coconut and sea salt caramel flavors! A little pricey but worth it!

I am a frequent customer at Coffee Waves (5-6 times per week) The coffee has always been first class and I have even branched out and tried other menu items other than my regular at the recommendations of the staff and have not been disappointed. While the coffee and baked goods are satisfying enough, the staff and service provided are... More

I oftentimes go to this location to pick up my coffee and an occasional gelato short. The product is always great and the value that your receive for your money is beyond fair. Tonight I stopped in, and brought a guest as I usually do and was extremely dissapointed. On one other occasion I have had a less than pleasing... More
