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.

I visited Corpus for a few days while my husband worked. I used Trip Advisor to find things to do. It isn't much. We were recommended Coffee Waves and were very happy to find. Everything good or neat to see, you have to drive to. Way out on Alameda S is this fantastic coffee place. Great service, good coffee, great... More

I've been here a few times and enjoy here more for relaxing than Starbucks. The menu might not be as long, but its quieter and they make gelato in house. They have some really good unique gelato flavors, like Lavender, that are worth trying. They have plenty of comfortable indoor seating and a patio outside. They allow dogs on their... More

Just wow. This light environment with a wonderfully caffeinated aroma lights up all five senses. The place is beautifully decorated and the crowd had a good mix of students to family ratio but definitely plenty of material for people watching. My better half froze in front of the gelato and began to explain how this reminded her of Italy. My... More

We were in Corpus last week and decided try Coffee Waves. We liked it so much that we returned every morning until we had to leave. Lattes, frapps and Americanos were excellent. Staff was knowledgeable and engaging. We enjoyed getting to know them. Great specials and rewards program. Lots of room, tables and electrical plugs. Awesome place to hang out.... More

Looking for coffee in the morning the first time we stopped by the coffee maker was still heating up at 8am. Stopped by the next day and got two cups of capachino and one hot chocolate for our daughter. The capachino was undrinkable and the hot chocolate was not much better. Stopped at the Valero around the corner and paid... More

The atmosphere is what you expect for a college coffee house. Nice heavy wooden tables and pleasant places to sit for reading or web browsing on your laptop.
