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

Consistently good coffee, friendly service and yummy food. Support locally owned business and visit Waimea Coffee. Eat in or outside. I always see people I know here- nice clothing and gift shops to visit in same building. I get the iced coffee and everything bagel for breakfast. Worth the stop to Waimea Coffee vs. nationally owned franchise coffee spot in... More

I haven't had coffee in about 4 years, but I broke down and had a cup of pure Kona at this local gem and it was delicious. Good thing I live on the mainland, or I would be there every day! Great coffee, good ambiance, nice staff.

I just had the best iced mocha here,the perfect ratio of coffe to chocolate and pretty sprinkled whipped cream! Great atmosphere and fun people working here too. Be sure to try the Berry Mint Magic Iced Tea also, it has this wonderrful lingering of mint after the sweetness.

Stopped in just by chance driving around the big island, on our way to Volcano National Park. Pleasantly surprised by the great coffee and breakfast. Service was a little slow, but we weren't in a rush any way.

We stopped in at the Waimea Coffee Company hoping for a quick lunch. We stood in a long line to order food and drinks, then waited 25 minutes for the food to be brought to our table. Meanwhile our hot drinks were getting cold and the cold drinks were getting warm. In the end the food was good, but not... More

The atmosphere could not be better. A u-shaped building off the street with a good mix of businesses. Peaceful. Have enjoyed coming here over the years, be it with younger children or as lone adults. Friendly, accommodating yet laid-back staff. The coffee quality and brewing are perfect. The coffee is a treat alone.

The cafe was in a lovely and authentic "cowboy" town and plaza. The coffee and tea was delicious (although pricier than other cafes). I would strongly recommend their coconut macaroons, which tasted like heaved! All their treats were incredible. The atmosphere was homey, with tones of outdoor seating.

I much prefer an independent, locally run coffee shop, rather than the big names. This place had a great vibe and great coffee and food!
