Caffe Mela is Wenatchee's premier coffee house, live music venue, and gathering place. Roasting world-class coffees, offering a grab-n-go lunch menu, in-house bakery, free wi-fi, kid's area, and an escape from the stresses of the day. Lots of room for meetings, or curl up on the couch with some gourmet tea and a good book.

Great food, cost a little inflated

This is a very whimsical place and that perfect kinda little funky place that serves the range of good deli sandwiches to espresso. The ingredients are great and the selection is fantastic, but as an avid eater of top deli's I am willing to pay for the good stuff, but their menu is a little higher... read more

Stopped in for my first visit late afternoon during the week. This is a local hangout other times but it was great to have a quiet place to read and listen to music. The shop had an art exhibit installed which added interest. Barista knew every single customer in the shop except for me. This was nice to see. I'll... More

Apparently, the Caffe Mela is quite the local hangout. But the cappuccino I had was so bad that I poured the remains in a planter once I stepped outside. The atmosphere of the place is rather dark and gloomy. There is a stage in the back which dominates the interior, which doubles as a place for local bands to perform.... More

Came in late afternoon on a holiday so take it for what it's worth.... Just a few patrons in the store but still had to wait a long time in line just to pay for a soggy sandwich and a can of soda. Staff members coming and going, chatting among themselves, but not making eye contact or acknowledging our presence.... More

Within walking distance of the Coast Wenatchee. The coffee is great though not all the baristas were so friendly early in the morning. We also had an above average hot breakfast one morning. Not fast but well worth the wait.

Popular hang out for getting together with friends. Good coffee and good, friendly service. Yfi availability so people also work there. More "homey" than regular coffee shops. Also has live music (and competitions) on certain nights.

We bought tickets $8.00 for an evening of great music with a local blues band Bucket List Blues and a high action blues band Shoot Jake. The beverages were good we had a variety of coffee , smoothies, local beers and wine. What we really liked was that we could take the family to enjoy a evening out and listen... More

Wow. So enjoyed the expertly prepared latte at Caffe Mela. We travel to Wenatchee a few times a year yet this was our first visit to Caffe Mela. Can't wait to go back. Service was outstanding and the coffee even better.

I was out for a walk in Wenatchee and found a tremendous coffee place. I had a latte that was rich and made with well roasted beans, just perfect on a cool morning. I bought a pound of beans because I want that experience at home, too but I won't get a smile and kind word like I did at... More

Great place to have some of their very own brewed coffee (downstairs), enjoy local wines, and in the weekend evenings hear great music!
