The detail to service and the friendly people that take your order make the coffee taste even better if that's possible! I had a latte and the foam was sublime. Bought a very cute tank there as well and love it. The pastries and savory food was exceptionally tasty as well. I will be visiting here again and again!

This place became a daily stop for my girlfriend when we were staying near Waimea. She raved on the quality of their coffee every morning. The staff were friendly and quick to serve up the liquid stuff. The food, though, took a long time and was a bit lame. We got the bacon & egg bagel, only to find that... More

This may have been one of the best cappuccinos I've had in Hawaii, which is saying something, white milk foam almost overwhelmed by deep chocolate brown coffee essence. The breakfast sandwich--I asked for a croissant instead of a bagel-- with egg and bacon was likewise superb. A friendly, slightly funky, delightful place.

Somebody recommended going here for their fabulous coconut macaroons and we were not disappointed! My husband and I both love anything coconut so we had to try these when we were driving through Waimea one day a couple years ago. Yum! Very delicious!!! So on our next trip to the Big Island in 2014, we had to make a point... More

Great coffee, great food, great people. I love this coffee shop. It's got inside and outside seating and local art hanging on the walls. An amazing place to spend a morning for breakfast and an afternoon for lunch.

The title says it all. It is not uncommon to wait 20 minutes or longer for a mocha; add food, add time.

Great place to stop for coffee or food in town. Drinks were great and atmosphere was nice. Lots of great shops to walk and browse while enjoying your drink.

Stopped by here as it seemed such a 'local' place with good vibes and we weren't disappointed. The coffee was lovely and although we didn't eat anything, the menu looked varied and the cakes on offer looked inviting! We'll definitely go back if we find ourselves in the area again.

Open early, coffee was comforting. Didn't try the food but menu seemed farm to table type dishes. Service was great, lots of Waimea history posted throughout, good to see locals enjoying fresh brewed coffee.
