The gelato here was great. It was very creamy and there was a good selection of flavors. Mexican cocoa was my favorite.

I love to visit local coffee shops when I travel. I really enjoyed Coffee Waves location and variety of drinks. The shop was open and inviting. There were magazines and papers to read. I recommend grabbing your cup of joe here and skipping starbucks.

Very friendly people, they know all about their coffee and tell you all you wonna know. - Also nice place to hangout, relax and refuel. They have pastries and gelati as well. And last but not least, three have a drive through.
