Very cool place somewhat reminiscent of NYC. Exposed brick and stone. We went for coffee in the morning and the food (donut and kolache) were actually very good. Highly recommend

Only old-fashioned coffee house in the city. A very pleasant place to spend some time talking with friends. Prices are reasonable and staff is very nice. Fun to visit anytime!

My group was in need of an afternoon snack and coffee and were SO glad we found Coffee Waves. The shop had a great coffee, exceptional iced Chai, tasty gelatto, and beautiful, original artwork on the walls. I highly recommend a stop here!

ordered a macchiato and it was room temperature. asked barista if he could warm it up and he pointed me to the microwave. awesome. I did microwave it and it was still great tasting espresso....so that is why they got an average rating. Also, I have been coffee waves in Port A.....and they are excellent.

Bet you can't pick just one flavor Gelato!! The gelato is the best part of Coffee Waves, the coffee and the menu choices just aren't as good as they used to be. Staff are friendly, conveniently located down town.

We visited every day for coffee and gelato. The Americana coffee was perfect. Many flavors of gelato are available and it was so good. The atmosphere and service were terrific.

Groupon turned us on to this place. Bought a great Groupon deal for 3 trips to Coffee Waves - each trip was a $7.00 coupon. First trip we bought Panini's for lunch. They were delicious and perfectly cooked. The server was very personable. She talked to us about the company and the different items on the menu. We noticed the... More

I am not into foo-foo stuff, but my wife is so I took her there. It was fairly quiet there and the Italian Ice Cream was good.
