Description: Food: We use the freshest ingredients available, in most cases, farmed right here on the big island. We have an herb garden out back which we use to make all of our own homemade soups and sauces. We shop at the local farmers markets for many ingredients. We care about what goes into our bodies and our community! This means we don't believe in microwaves, GMO foods, or artificial flavorings. We do believe in organic, local, and gluten free alternatives. We believe that fresh foods are better for all of us. All produce and baked goods are sourced locally! Come check us out :) Coffee and Tea: We have friendly, knowledgeable baristas here to craft you a delicious beverage. We use cold brewed coffee as our iced coffee. We feature our islands best coffees, available for personal pour overs and french presses. We also have 100% organic and local teas available for those who do not like coffee :)

We came across this place quite by accident and we are ever so pleased that we did. We have fantastic coffee in Australia and this is the first time that we have found anything close to the coffee we have at home. I am an avid tea drinker and I have found it hard to find a decent cup of... More

Quality local coffee and a tight crew run this privately owned shop. The food while slightly pricey, is delicious. Gotta love the emphasis on using only local quality ingredients. The coffee is better than Starbucks, and the loyal clientele proves it. Waimea Coffee offers free wifi to customers, and is a favorite among locals.

Its a great coffee shop. I had a mocha, and my husband had a kona coffee. Good drinks but I'm not sure what all the hype was about. If you are in the area its worth a stop, but I'd say I found good coffee almost every where I went on the big island.

Definitely come here. Forget Starbucks!! Delicious iced latte. Mocha is rich and creamy. Ask for less chocolate if you want to taste the coffee. Wonderful service and warm atmosphere.

Stayed in waimea and came here everyday - coffee is great and the breakfast burrito is one of the best I've had ... Good vibe to chill alone or with friends :)

I think this is a better coffee house than restaurant. I had the chicken pesto wrap and my wife a Jenna salad. Both were good, but not great. You have to order your meal up front and then they bring it to you. There are very few tables, inside and out, so sitting is a premium. People were friendly but... More

The espresso was OK, a little too acidic for my taste. There are definitely better beans on the island. Service was as clueless as it could possibly get. In the first 10 minutes we were there, 3 orders were wrong. However, the worst being that they have also succumbed to the pumpkin spice latte meme. Come on! Have some pride... More

Consistently good coffee, friendly service and yummy food. Support locally owned business and visit Waimea Coffee. Eat in or outside. I always see people I know here- nice clothing and gift shops to visit in same building. I get the iced coffee and everything bagel for breakfast. Worth the stop to Waimea Coffee vs. nationally owned franchise coffee spot in... More
