This is a great location and could be dynamite with a little ingenuity. The coffee is good, but the interior is drab and the seating haphazard. There is no creative outside seating on this great people-watching corner. Waves on 9A St/17 Ave is much better.

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.

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.
