This is a "proper" specialist coffee shop that has very good coffee, by which we mean it is rich and flavorful without bitterness. Has food also and inside and outside seating. Is quite small inside. Located adjacent to Longs Drugs Interestingly they said they use Malabar gold coffee - not Kona coffee ( which tends to be overpriced and not... More

After breakfast we saw a sign for a coffee shop across the street. We were blown away as soon as we set foot in the place. The place oozed "relaxation" with the friendly baristas, music and general atmosphere. We came back four times that week and had breakfast, smoothies and great coffee - all at very reasonable prices.

Loved the coffee. VERY expensive. Don't ask for room for cream. They don't fill the cup up anyway. The scones muffins and breakfast sandwiches are really good. This was our morning ritual. Friendly staff. Good service.

Waimea Coffee Company made one of the best cafe mochas we had on the Big Island. Definitely worth a stop!

Our hotel concierge recommended we stop by here for a quick breakfast on the way to the volcano. Wow, this place was so slow, and the food was just okay. The eggs in my breakfast sandwich were either fake or microwaved. We agreed we would have been better off stopping by the McDonalds that was a minute further down the... More

Really great coffee is what you can expect here. We also enjoyed some delicious meals, snacks and such. The atmosphere here is conducive to lingering and conversation. Take your time and enjoy. You can also enjoy brousing in the attractive shops just outside and beside. We loved sitting outside at the little tables they have provided. Charming!

Although the food is tasty, the service is inadequate! Visited 3 times and all 3 times, there was a mistake on my order. Still gave the place a chance because it's in my home town & I wanted to support my local business. The last draw was a phone in order I tryed to place to pick up on my... More

It was raining so we didn't drive all the way from Hawi to the east side of the island. Thought we'd eat lunch at Merriman's, but they were closed so we decided to shop at the little center across the street. The coffee shop smells great, the pastries are delicious, and the barista was outstanding. Loved the tip jars and... More
