Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people to wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of café fare and drinks at Coffee Waves. This Groupon is valid at both of the shop's Corpus Christi locations.
The baristas at Coffee Waves brew fair-trade and organic beans to augment a menu of paninis using Boar's Head products and other café staples. Morning commuters stop in to kick-start work rituals with a tall caffe mocha ($3.98), and self-conscious noncoffee drinkers fake it with a tall hot chocolate ($3.39). The lunch special flaunts a panini, chips, a beverage, and dessert ($11), creating a chew-a-palooza so extensive it allows patrons ample time to admire local artwork mounted on the walls or bask in a slight breeze on the expansive outdoor patio. Visitors can dig spoons into cups of house-made gelato in the evenings, when live tunes emanate from musicians' guitars, or they can pamper their laptops with free WiFi and more outlets than a gifted 8-year-old at arts-and-crafts camp.
The iced toddy, a cold-brewed coffee over ice, is one of the many special artisanal drinks on the menu at Coffee Waves. You can get a caffeine boost with both cold and hot drinks here. Grab a drink like the grasshopper frap and feel free to lounge among the cozy seating area, which has local art hung on its exposed brick and stone walls. In addition to drinks, you can order panini stuffed with Boar's Head meats and pastries selected from local bakeries. Feel free to use the free wireless internet to get some work done or post updates about the current temperature of your coffee. The Coffee Waves downtown location just had its grand reopening after being closed for renovations.
