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!

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.

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.
