I am going to be in town for business for the first time in Corpus Christi. I'm staying downtown right by the marina. I'm trying to find a coffeeshop or someplace similar I could do some work in the evening. Coffee waves on Williams St looked like a great place, however they close at 6 pm. Are there any other suggestions within walking distance I'm missing? I won't have access to transportation since I am flying in.

Also, if anyone has any recommendations on breakfast or dinner places in downtown I'd appreciate it. If there are any other suggestions for the marina area other than bars, please feel free to offer them up.

There is the Downtown Coffee and Espresso Bar on Water St. It is open 24 hrs.

Only been in there once. Not to have coffee or eat, but it is a nice little cafe.

Although it's not a coffee shop, you can probably sit and do work til 9 or 10 at the Downtown Grill. It will be quiet on a December weeknight. Their webpage makes it look much fancier than it really is. Downtown Grill Restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas - Mesquite Fired Grill - Steaks ? Seafood ? Salads

There's a very good pizza/pasta place called Mesquite Street Pizza (on Mesquite Street) which would be good for dinner. Also the two Water Street restaurants (Water Street Seafood, Water Street Oyster Bar) are good, as is the Executive Surf Club if you want something more casual. Breakfast, I'm not so sure of, but there is a Sunoco gas station on I-37 and Water Street, a block from the bay, that has breakfast tacos on fresh tortillas that rival those of any restaurant.

Is it safe to go out late at night like that in CC? It is safe in Midland, but Midland is a lot smaller than CC. Thank you - just still trying to get a feeling for how liveable CC is in terms of freedom to drive to 24-hour pharmacy, hospitals, coffeehouses, etc.

Yes downtown CC is fairly safe. Of course there is a sizable transient population, but they mainly keep to themselves and hide out. As far as crime goes, if you aren't involved in criminal activity, or are hanging out in sketchy areas, you wont have anything to worry about.

There are no 24 hour pharmacies nearby that I can think of, but there is a Stripes. If you need a grocery store, the Walmart at Parkdale Plaza is closest, which is about six miles away. I think the Walgreens across the street from Walmart is 24 hours as well.

There are two 24 hour pharmacies in CC. A Walgreens and a CVS.
Dinner downtown you've got the Water St complex, as well as Harrison's Landing. Breakfast I always recommend Hester's.

Stay west of I-37, and avoid the area around Leopard & Staples, and you'll be fine.

Also, I second the previous recommendation for Downtown Grill. You can also go to the big 2-story Whataburger, but it's not really a coffee shop.
