This is a well-run coffee bar that would put that "other" coffee shop to shame. Dark, eclectic décor displaying work by local artists and big, soft comfy chairs invite you in for a nice lengthy stay to enjoy a nice coffee or cuppa. Standard coffee house fare PLUS cold-brewed coffees, sandwiches and gelato. Opens early and stays open for night-owls. Check for times because Port Aransas eateries and shops tend to close depending on business traffic.

Last summer I spent a lot of time here finishing up a project for an online class that I was taking. Staff was polite and never gave me grief about spending hours on their wi-fi.
This last weekend I spent a nice hour here on a Sunday morning with my bagel and coffee. The place is a little dark, but seating is comfortable and there are seats by the window. Staff was efficient and polite. Nice break from the beach atmosphere.

We read the reviews and headed up to Coffee Waves for a morning cup of coffee and hit chocolate for the kids. 20 minutes in line for decent coffee, but there were 4 employees behind the counter who just couldn't seem to catch up. While waiting in line, we enjoyed the nice decor and saw the big leather armchairs, but were horrified to look up and see air vents with all kinds of floating dust and stuff dangling. The Mgt should be sure to look up every now and again...

We came here every day on our trip to Port Aransas for coffee or gelato. The coffee is better than Starbucks and the gelato is excellent. The service is great. The menu selection looked good for lunch also. Loved the décor here and the seating was very comfortable.

Well, it was breakfast time and I imagined a big hot melty cinnamon roll. I found a rather large pile of little hard plastic wrapped cinnamon roll looking things. Didn't stay for coffee. Believe it or not, we went to Whataburger for the second time in our lives. Saved the day.
