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 :)

Not just great coffee

The food here is so good too! Carefully prepared and tasty. A nice selection of hearty breakfast items, and some great pastries too. It's a small place, and was a little too chilly to sit outside, which would have been fun. The place got very busy while we were there, and we got the feeling it... read more

Seriously, why didn't I know about this before? Their chai teas, coffee, macadamia nut pie, are all devine. Quality coffee in a very nice location - and a patio outside! We come from Seattle, and we know good coffee - this is it!

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
