We stopped to get a quick breakfast on our way to the botanical garden. But it took 30 minutes to get a bagel, breakfast wrap and egg sandwich. The food was excellent when it came, but don't stop here unless you have time to spare.

We eat lunch here weekly & enjoy their coffee drinks & sandwiches or panini with good soups & purple potato salad. Sometimes it's hard to find seating inside or along deck. But food is fresh, tasty, varied, in a good local small cafe atmosphere.

I love making a good Breakfast Burrito at home, But the Waimea Coffee Company's Burrito is Excellent !! Not Heavy or Greasy but Large enough to Split with my Friend !! & the Latte is Definitely 👍🏼

Going out of my way for coffee of the highest grade is always in order. While my wife shopped the local stores and galleries I popped into this local spot. Cool small little space with food and coffee. I was there for the coffee but ended up being diverted by they very custom home made chai latte and banana walnut... More

Coffee was great. This place is pretty much a hipster type of place. Friendly staff. Limited seating inside and outside. A little bit of a wait for breakfast sandwiches. Great pastries.

We traveled through the Waimea area a couple of times while on a visit to the Big Island. Each time we went through Waimea, we stopped at the Waimea Coffee Company. The first time was for lunch. The food was very delicious and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The second time we stopped, we only had coffee beverages... More

We've never had a bad cup of anything. Carrot cake was the bomb, service is friendly and efficient. Place is packed but it moves quickly. Entire shopping center is fun. Buy the hot sauce and the local pickles in the cold case.

This is truly a locally owned and operated business. The coffee is tasty, fresh and served with good old fashion aloha. On a clear day in Kamuela in September sitting on the porch is a great place to be. It can at times be crowded. Timely place to stop for tourist on their way to Hilo.

Thank KiminKamuela

Food: We use the freshest ingredients available, in most cases, farmed right here on the big island. We have an herb garden out back which we use to make all of our own homemade soups and sauces. We shop at the local farmers markets for many ingredients. We care about what goes into our bodies and our community! This means we don't believe in microwaves, GMO foods, or artificial flavorings. We do believe in organic, local, and gluten free alternatives. We believe that fresh foods are better for all of us. All produce and baked goods are sourced locally! Come check us out :) Coffee and Tea: We have friendly, knowledgeable baristas here to craft you a delicious beverage. We use cold brewed coffee as our iced coffee. We feature our islands best coffees, available for personal pour overs and french presses. We also have 100% organic and local teas available for those who do not like coffee :)
