Great Coffee and in-house gelato

Beast coffee on the island. Gelato is also good too. The service is fast and friendly. The restaurant has plenty room for small groups or more isolated place for individuals who need privacy. Avenue J connects you to all major condos via golf cart.

The gelato is made in house and comes in a variety of great favors. Great place to get your morning cup of joe and a delicious cold treat after lunch, dinner, or after a hot day at the beach.

Worth a stop if you're in Port Aransas, excellent coffee and lots of great gelato. Open early until late and they have a drive-through.

Cool vibe in this coffee house with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. We needed coffee beans for our espresso maker, and they delivered a nice bean. Be sure to get there early for Gelato as it is mad fresh daily and goes on the weekends. I recommend the toasted almond!

Food, coffee and service = EXCELLENT!!! The only reason I did NOT give coffee waves 5 stars was because they allowed a big Labrador retriever hang out at the front counter for quite a while one of the mornings we were there :( :( :(. It was apparently a pet and NOT a service dog of any type. Not good.... More

We came to get a pick me up in the afternoon and were so pleased with the choices in coffee. The gelato was delicious and so many choices! The atphomous was so cool as we sat on comfy couches and sipped our brew. We contemplated staying longer because it was such a great place to relax!

Coffee Waves is the place to go for coffee for sure but it is also our favorite place to get Gelato! We go pretty much everyday while in Port Aransas. Nice comfortable atmosphere to relax and have a nice conversation over your favorite specialty coffee or with your gelato. On the main drag just past G street, you can't miss... More

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 salted caramel... More
