“Best Poblano Soup Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

A very eclectic cafe with a definite "Austin" feel to it. Great menu; we were there for lunch. Several salad and sandwich options were on the menu, but the must have star of the show is the roasted poblano soup. Creamy, spicy and all in all well balanced.....get the soup...it's why you came in......The homemade desert selection looked awesome as well, but we did not try any this time....I'm thinking soup with desert trip.

The very friendly efficient wait staff completes the package.....great cafe in Corpus Christi!

“Really Like Nuevo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2011

The Poblano Soup is the reason you go to Nuevo! They are a lunch only restaurant that gets really busy around $12. They serve salads and sandwiches. They are not by far out of this world sandwiches and salads, but still good. The art in the restaurant make up for where that lacks.

Great poblano soup and sandwiches. Get there early on weekdays or you will be waiting in line. Closes at 3pm.

“Real Decent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2010

Soup and Pimento sandwich. Tasty and enjoyable. A bigger veg selection would be nice. I still return as the atmosphere is quite pleasant and service friendly.
