“A favorite for coffee! A hidden gem!”
Review of Cafe Calypso

Reviewed November 16, 2011

Since we moved to Corpus, we have been at Cafe Calypso at least once or twice a week. My husband maintains they make the best cappuccinos he's had anywhere. The owners are wonderful - friendly and helpful. Marcy's baked goods are outstanding! Besides everything else, if you want something to read, Half Price Books is attached so you can pick up something to browse while you enjoy your coffee. Love supporting such a great locally owned establishment! Don't overlook this gem!

Since they remodeled the bookstore it's been getting a little hectic for me, but Cafe Calypso is my favorite place in Corpus Christi. The service is always great and they have a good selection, and even some live music on certain nights! I would say go check it out.

Great coffee and terrific snacks and serious food (try their chicken salad) right next door to a bookstore. They also sell their coffee and will grind it for you if you want right before your eyes. The coffees of the day change and include some interesting coffees. In good weather we like to eat outside, but the tables inside are fun too, with postcards and pictures of places you'd like to go. It is a real expresso place, with everything made the old way. Smells wonderful too. The cream italian sodas are a taste treat...try the strawberry or some other berry. We simply don't go anywhere else any more. Oh, and the service is so friendly you'll think you know the owners.
