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 little cafe”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I stopped for lunch at this little cafe just by chance. I was driving through Waimea and this was a place that had parking spaces and there was a break in the traffic to turn into the parking lot. I'm glad I did stop! The cafe is small and has both indoor and outdoor seating. Coming from the warmer, more humid Kona area, it was great to sit outside with the cool breeze blowing. I had one of their salads, but as a wrap. This way was actually cheaper! It was delicious and so was the iced tea. The food is reasonably priced for the area and you get your monies worth. There is also a great general store next door that I also recommend stopping at.

“WAIMEA COFFEE TO START THE DAY”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The perfect little coffee shop to start the day with a custom Mocha or Latte.
Loved the outdoor seating and the bakery. One morning I arrived as they were taking sticky buns out of the oven. HAD to buy a few for the family.
Also tried their chocolate chip cookies and bear claws, amazing!!!!
Sent several granola bars (homemade) back to the mainland for family to enjoy with rave reviews. The lunch salads are so tasty and wonderful as well.
Fresh ingredients. Yummy sweets! Yummy salads.

“Great little coffee shop with light snacks.”
Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

Forget Starbucks and their foreign coffees. Waimea Coffee Company is locally owned and serves local Kona coffees among other blends. Great light snacks to sandwiches to accompany someone who want a little something.... Try it, you'll like it!
