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 :)

This destination in Waimea is a must. Small, charming, and full of Aloha, unique food and coffee specialities. The lady who does the designs in the cream toppings of your drink is a masterful artist...watching her was a treat. The place is small with seating out on the lanai. We enjoyed the Happy Noodle dinner on Friday. A great spot... More

Big Island is well known for its excellent Kona coffee but to get really good expresso is a problem, sometimes. However, we enjoyed it in Waimea Coffee Company a lot. It's a nice cosy place and their desserts are also worth trying, we liked them a lot.

Very authentic coffee shop serving nice coffee and pastries; had breakfast here on the way to Waipio valley. It's located in a small shopping center once you reach Waimea city.

If you are driving through Waimea be sure to stop into Waimea Coffee Company. Small so sometimes hard to find a seat but very homey. Loved the house blend. Actually enjoyed it more than some of the 100% Kona I'd tried on my trip. Good bagel sandwich (the classic). Good service. Sweet location.

I've been here a few times after trying the southwest burrito melt which a co-worker recommended. It's the best burrito I've ever had and I drive from across the island any chance I can to eat here. The pastries and coffee are also great!

As the title suggests, pretty much everything except the coffee is worth a visit here. Very friendly staff, a nice selection of standard cafe fare -- smoothies, baked goods, soups and sandwiches -- plus a charming, cozy atmosphere. My wife and I came here twice. Both times I had the breakfast melt: eggs, bacon, cheese, with bean and tomato salsa,... More
