I visit here often. Meet candidates here as it a quiet public place. Coffee creations are great. They baked all their own cookies, cakes, pies and cheesecakes. Roast their own coffee. They are very friendly and helpful. I think this is one of the nicest...More

Great selection of single origin coffees and fresh baked desserts. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It's attached to Half Price Books so you can peruse the stacks while drinking a delicious coffee. Weekend evenings they have local artists play inside the cafe. There's...More

Cafe Calypso is attached to Half Price Books. You can read while you drink your coffee or other beverage. They have live entertainment some nights - mainly weekends, I think. The performers I have seen and heard have been good - not so loud that...More

Awesome coffee and treats. Friendly staff. Only down side is cash only. Other than that it is a nice place to enjoy great cup of joe.

A hidden gem located inside Half-Price Books. Great coffee drinks, comparable prices and friendly staff. The plaza is located in front of Hobby Lobby - so ideal for me - books, crafts and iced coffees! ;)

Great location in Moore Plaza shopping center. It's a great place you can sit and drink your coffee or walk around and look at the great discount half priced books. Customer service is always great here and so is the coffee. It's too expensive though.

I like to go here for the atmosphere and the coffee. The owners and staff are wonderfully nice. The coffee is fresh and robust. The iced and hot tea is my daughters favorite. We enjoy the atmosphere of eclectic people. I like the vibe!

Discovered this place a few years ago when I would come to Corpus to visit relatives. After moving down here, it became my go-to place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee that was not a chain. Their roasts are excellent, and they have...More

They have very little. I went there expecting to have a selection of sandwiches, based on the picture here on TA. Sorry. Had three choices - ham/cheese, turkey/cheese and chicken salad. No tomatoes, lettuce or other items to put on the sandwiches. On either bagel...More
