A trip to Corpus Christi includes all the fun at the beach, but for foodies, the dining options are just as exciting! From micheladas that are basically meals to a fresh seafood dinner with the most brilliant sunset, there are so many scrumptious dining experiences that are just as much part of the travel experience!

Doing Brunch Right in Corpus Christi

Muse Bistro is a popular spot for brunch so make sure to get reservations ahead of time if you can. Their chicken and waffle kabobs is a fun option and you can’t go wrong with the cajun chicken and waffles in honey butter syrup or the shrimp and grits. They also offer different fun mimosa flavors like a guava mimosa.

Coffee Break

Island Joes Coffee and Gallery is a colorful spot with different containers all stacked on top of each other to create a building that’s a work of art in itself. Stop inside for a quick cool off from that Texas sun and delicious coffee and non-coffee beverages.

Massive Micheladas

Now the burgers at Burger Hideaway are something to talk about with unique options including their donut burger, but they’re also known for their drinks that they pile high with candy, chips, and other food items. Their ultimate offering is the surf and turf that comes with a lobster tail, steak, and mixed veggies.

Dinner with the Best Sunset

Doc’s Seafood offers dinner with a view! As it’s located right along the water, people will often drive their boats in and docl for a meal, drink, and yard games. Doc’s is known for their fresh fish so make sure to ask about their daily specials to see what they have in for that day. Doc’s is also well talked about because of the sunset from the restaurant. They’re perfectly located so you get one of the best views of the sunset that Corpus Christi has to offer.

Food, Drinks, & Music

The Executive Surf Club captures the lifestyle of beach living in their restaurant that provides casual dining, burgers, fish & chips, and some fried pickles very much worth mentioning. On weekends they have live music that often brings in locals and tourists alike. Stop by the wall filled with celebrities that have visited before and enjoy all the surfing tributes incorporated into the decor around the restaurant.

The Cutest Pink Bisto

Bien Merite is a one stop spot for fresh coffee, pastries, a great brunch, or some fabulous lunch options. The entire restaurant is pink and they have a beautiful floral wall that makes for some lovely pictures.
