Intent on supplying diners with healthy choices by making flavorful, readily available food, the chefs at Urban Fare Cafe craft a menu that mingles Mediterranean, Indian, Asian, and African cuisines. Piquant soups such as the carrot bisque with ginger and mint pair with guiltless sandwiches and wraps such as the Montreal-style roast beef. Alternatively, whole-grain-wheat pizzas stand in for starchier pies, and cooks prepare rice bowls with either white or brown rice. Baristas emit the aromas of roasted coffee beans throughout the eatery by brewing espresso drinks and practicing levitation with café mugs.
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Corpus Christi: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
A towering chalkboard announces the menu at Chef Mark's restaurant, which certified executive chef Mark Carpenter erases and redrafts each day. Drawing from nearly 40 years of experience, Carpenter oversees an experienced kitchen staff as they whip up hearty comfort breakfasts and lunches from scratch. The restaurant's countertops steam with freshly made platters of pot roasts, meatloaf, and pork chops, and a salad bar showcases colorful vegetables and dressings. Meanwhile, a dessert bar is piled high with trays of warm cinnamon buns, crusty rolls, cookies, and pies. After selecting their meals, customers retire to a sunlit dining room filled with white-clothed tables. The welcoming, communal atmosphere is accentuated by decorative flower arrangements, a bookshelf of reading material, and a prohibition on duck hunting of any kind.
In 1982, Jeanne and Mark Samii could barely squeeze their old-fashioned cheesecakes into a 300-square-foot bakery. These days, they need a 25,000-square-foot factory to craft a sprawling menu of cheesecakes, tortes, and pies. More than 30 varieties of cheesecake—including key lime, amaretto almond, and fudge marble—pair sweetness with smooth textures, like a saxophone that emanates unsolicited compliments. Available with two or three stories of batter-based bricks, layer cakes showcase gourmet ingredients such as mascarpone cheese and dark-chocolate ganache. The bakery also peddles creamy, sugar-free cheesecakes, towering wedding cakes, and snack-size treats such as cookies and brownies.
The comestible crew at The HoneyBaked Ham Co. assembles a menu of classic sandwiches out of spiral-sliced ham, roasted turkey, and prime roast beef, awakening pococurante palates with the heavenly tastes of baked honey and gourmet deli trimmings. Smoked up to 24 hours so each slice is as tender as a toddler’s toothless smile, hand-selected hams lend 10 types of boxed lunch sandwiches a rosy hue and a distinctive salty sweetness. The HoneyBaked ham classic proves that pigs can fly with its heaven-sent ham on a fresh baker’s roll stacked with swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato slathered in sweet and rich hickory honey mustard, and the turkey bacon ranch finds its own wings with savory smoked turkey paired with bacon, swiss cheese, and ranch sauce on multigrain bread. Meanwhile, the prime roast beef sandwich's succulent beef captains a flaky croissant through squalls of zesty horseradish with a crew of red onions, lettuce, tomato, and cheddar cheese. Each boxed lunch arrives armed with a pickle spear and choice of chips or a homestyle side such as potato salad, macaroni and cheese salad, or the alliterative broccoli bacon bliss salad. Patrons can slurp down their chosen drink as an included cookie or brownie eases taste buds back down from euphoric meat-laden heights. As an added bonus, Groupon customers may purchase an eight-pound ham at a discounted price of $51 (normally $57.72).
Grassroots Coffee helps guests go from bleary-eyed to blissfully buzzed by serving up mugs brimming with freshly brewed, locally roasted coffee in a comfy café setting. Sink into a padded wooden chair with a cup of blum java ($2.50–$3.50), a slow-poured, ultra-filtered brew, or awaken the senses with a Jolt ($2.25–$2.50), a drip-brewed coffee topped with espresso and seasoned with lighting-rod photons. This caffeine canteen also provides coffee-free options, such as the caramel—a joe-less caramel latté drizzled with caramel ($2.25–$2.60)––and fruit coolers available in strawberry, peach, Island, and Coolada flavors ($2.10–$2.90). Couple a jump-starting libation with an asiago-cheese bagel ($2.40) or a cinnamon scone ($2.75). Or finally find the courage to end a long-term relationship with Famous Amos by locking lips with peanut-butter fantasy cookie––a dreamy chocolate cookie stuffed with creamy peanut butter ($1).
