There are two Waves locations on 17th Ave and none in my area (NW) so it's a treat. I like that both locations offer a bit of parking but ultimately it's relaxing to dine in.

Why have we waited so long? Nice to meet my friends here. nicer staff. So much better quality than that 20 year out of date 'BAD EARTH' I had to visit before. keeping with the times, WAVES is a new cool franchise- hope to visit more of these

Stopped here when I arrived in Calgary. There wasn't a line up, but there were people inside. Ordered two lattes, tasted great. I would recommend going.

Though I am typically more of a Starbucks grab and go person, I find Waves has as good of hot tasty coffee , where they excel is that they have really nice snacks though and very friendly staff.

Got blended coffee and croissants there when I met up with a friend. They have a few gluten free options but seemed a bit over priced for what you get. Croissants looked good but were not as soft as I thought they would be.

All the espresso based beverages looked fantastic. I had a mocha -- with a choice of milk, dark, matcha, or white chocolate -- and it was terrific (I went with the dark chocolate). Also had a chocolate-caramel mousse which was divine. Limited seating; but otherwise highly recommended.

This is in a great location, always am able to find a spot to sit. the coffee is outstanding and a perfect little patio/outdoor area. I highly recommend the maple macchiato as a treat.
