Review of Cafe Calypso

Cafe Calypso
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 9, 2012

It is located in the front of the Half Price Book Store in Moore Plaza shopping center. Great coffee shop, run Erdal and Marcy who are there and involved nearly every day. They employ dozens of college kids and they are always pleasant and knowledgeable regarding the many varieties of imported coffees. A true community resource.

I live in Austin, Texas. I go visit family regualarlly in Corpus. Everytime I go, I visit Cafe Calypso at least once if not twice a day. I always bring home Freshly roasted coffe for myself and friends. I am now ordering it and having it shipped to me, since I cannot find any other to match. The service is extremely friendly and impecable.

It is not exactly a cafe, housed as a concession in Half Price Book Store in Moore Plaza shopping center. Great cafe, run by an American Turkish man and his wife. They have helped dozens of college girls have employment to pay for their education. Good coffee drinks hot or cold, bagels. FRIENDLY! Go there!

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.
