    A nice quiet traditional book store, where adults can purchase books for children. No coffee bar in site. No long lines. No standing room only crowds. Browsing and buying are a pleasure, the proprietors are helpful, informed and low-key. The variety and range of childrens book is extensive. The tie-in toys for storybooks are not the usual tacky junk.

    Loved this hotel. Stayed one week to be closer to the office. At the last minute and with high occupancy that week, the staff provided me with a smallish but charming room on one of the conscierge floors. The staff was quite, efficient, and helpful. A full breakfast and afternoon "snacks" (more like a meal) were included everday in a quite dining room on the same floor with an attendant on duty. I would have moved in if I could have. I tried out the pool -- it was excellent for a lap swim.

    This Whataburger is right on the bay. Don't drive through eat in, on the second floor.

    This is one of my favorite bakeries everything is good. However, I found out from the staff that lots of food is thrown away if it doesn't sell -- I was shown huge bags full of edibles (I couldn't have fit them in the trunk of my car.) This is shameful, in other cities here in Texas, such food is packaged and delivered to "soup kitchens" so that it can be incorporated into meals. One kitchen said that they could use anything edible to create meals. I was disgusted that in Austin of all places that such an upscale business would throw away food that had been for sale only an hour earlier.

    Great fun especially for the younger set. The fountain at the front gate is a great place for a family photo with the gate as a back drop.

    This Shipleys does not make the chocolate filled devils food. In our family, that's not acceptable.

    After a lunch of migas and black beans, I always have a dessert. The selection is extensive. Try something new each time.
  • Luby's 5730 Saratoga Boulevard, Corpus Christi, TX 78414 (361) 992-3262

    Although the location and dining rrom service are good. the selection of desserts is a big disappointment. Whether it is a failure to plan or lack of imagination of the management, the situation remains the same usually three or four selections only of very similar types. They are layed out in a haphazard way on the multitiered shelves to appear as if there is a wide selection but there aren't ever really. I remember in the past Luby's had lots of different kinds of desserts. Now it's mainly whipped cream type fluff on top of fruti or custard in a sad pie crust shell. For variety there's sometimes a piece of cake iced with whipped cream type fluff colored with a bit of cocoa.
