We aim on visiting CW every visit to Port A. Consistently good Gelato always with interesting flavours and the coffee is just the same..great! Try the sandwiches, made fresh with quality fillings. A must do when in Port A.

Nice local atmosphere. Good quality. Average Starbucks type customer should be pleased. Got breakfast pastry plus grabbed a sandwich to take to the beach for lunch. Convenient and good quality.

Grabbed coffee after lunch and it was a quality experience. Nice service, great product selection and decent prices. Got iced mocha, smoothie and regular coffee. All excellent taste!! I highly recommend it.

We were impressed with their drink and food selection. We both ordered iced coffee with almond milk which was good, not great. Just be warned, it took 30 minutes of standing in line to get to place our order.

Not many places to get good coffee on the island and I think this is the best. Broad selection of drinks. They also serve pastries and gelato. Cozy table areas to read and chat. They also have roasted beans to sell and grind if you want to brew your own.

Coming back this year, we were so excited to try our favorite coffee shop. And it IS great coffee! 5 stars. But 20 minutes at the drive thru (not including wait time behind other cars) is unacceptable.

We absolutely fell in love with this little place. It's very community oriented, comfortable, laid back but also quaint enough for an enjoyable get together. Not only is their coffee delicious but their Gelato is fantastic as well! Once we discovered this gem, we returned twice more before leaving Port Aransas. In my opinion, Coffee Waves is a must see...

Perfect perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the morning. Possibly the best cappuccino ever had. Would like to have had a few more food options. Service great.

The atmosphere is very friendly and clean just like their very friendly staff. They also have free WiFi and lots of outlets and seats for working. This is the place to... More
