The gelato is very thick and rich. Lots of flavors to choose from, plus you get a sample taste prior to purchasing. Their coffee is strong and flavorful, nice and fresh.

This is a great place to have a cup of coffee after a meal. Also a nice place to just kick back and relax. Internet access is fast.

Good coffee, helpful barista behind the counter, and atmosphere was great! We enjoyed the multiple paintings from what appeared to be local artists on display throughout the shop. Music just right, and WiFi worked well also. The Peruvian and Honduran coffee were pretty good...the barista (girl) did a good job of answering questions, and helpful. She also when no clients...

We didn't order coffee, but the gelato was great, very creamy with good flavors. My favorite was Mexican cocoa.

Best sandwiches and gelato on the island! And a nice place to have coffee and croissants for breakfast. This is a good place to learn what's going on on the island and to find things to do.

This was an excellent find as we could use the wifi, have coffee,cake, ice cream or a heated panini. Friendly atmosphere, lots of local artists sell their paintings there.

We've been to coffee waves a few times. It can be a little pricey but it's the only real coffee place on the island. Tried the gelato for the first time and was very impressed. Love the quiet seating areas they have. One of my favorite spots in Port A.

Very decent wifi, and lots of comfy places to sit in the cool on a 90F day in February. Decent little shops in the same strip mall.

Thank CharlieInAustin
