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 :)

Great coffee!

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.

This is the best coffee house on the west side of the Big Island. When it's busy here, the waiting time for your drink/food order can seem long, but everything is made to order. All of the coffee offerings are great. And the staff are extra friendly. Worth a stop--or two.

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 was a regular stop... 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.
