So good

The lady at the counter was so sweet and really took care of everything and had an outstanding knowledge of all the gelato she was serving. The fact that it was made fresh in house was a huge plus!

Coffee Waves is a going home from the beach stop for us. We love the Lexington blend and like to enjoy it sitting in the Adirondack chairs out front.

My favorite place for a dish of gelato in all of south Texas! Lots of flavors and delish! Tuesday's are the best days because of the two for one deal, unlimited, on the small bowls! Such a deal!!

The coffee was strong, as it should be, and we tried an orange poppyseed cake and a coffee cake which were both very tasty. The atmosphere is casual and laid back, you can sit at a table or... More

My wife was ecstatic to find a coffee shop that served gelato, however when we went we found they had very few fruit flavors on hand. No biggie though, as the coffee was still pretty good and the service both times we went was great.

We always come here when in Port A. The coffee is good and the gelato is wonderful. It's a nice, comfortable place to sit and enjoy a good cup of coffee.
