I'm here all the time. Favorite place to be. Good price on coffee, quality and all. I have been coming here 3 times a week for 4 years. It's the place to go to relax, read, work or just enjoy a cup of coffee.

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! ;)

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
