C Bar Cafe Opens in Cinnamon Shore Town Center Marks a Major Milestone for the Mixed-Use Community
The developers of Cinnamon Shore, the first wholly master-planned New Urbanism development on Texas's Coastal Bend, announce a major milestone in Phase 3 construction-the completion of the C Bar Café, the first piece of retail property in the mixed-use community.
- Corpus Christi, TX (1888PressRelease) September 08, 2011 - With construction completed earlier this summer on the C Bar Café, the first restaurant at the Cinnamon Shore mixed-use community on Mustang Island, a grand opening took place on August 17, 2011. The opening marks a major milestone for Cinnamon Shore, the first wholly master-planned New Urbanism development on Texas's Coastal Bend featuring a close-knit, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood with modern-day conveniences. C Bar Café is the first finished piece of commercial property in the community, and it serves as the start of the developer's vision of a town center replete with convenient shops, charming restaurants, workspaces and gathering places coming to fruition.
Open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., during peak season, the C Bar Café is currently open Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to midnight, Sunday and Monday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and closed Tuesday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday nights feature live music, while Sunday and Monday nights focus on football on TV and happy hour drink specials. The Café can be rented for private parties and special events at any time, and hours will be extended during all holidays.
C Bar Café, located at 165 Social Circle, features a variety of organic gourmet coffees, artisan level espresso, fresh-baked pastries, assorted piled-high Panini sandwiches, frozen fruit smoothies and a full premium bar featuring microbrewery beer, an extensive wine list and super premium liquor. In addition, the Café boasts the Coastal Bend's only fresh made Italian gelato and sorbetto, crafted locally by David Bendett, proprietor.
Catering to residents and guests alike, C Bar Café is geared toward feeding the entire family for the whole day. From warm cinnamon rolls and muffins for breakfast to thick turkey, tuna or tomato basil Panini sandwiches (just to name a few) for lunch and dinner to refreshing after-dinner drinks and desserts (coffee and cocktails for the adults and Italian gelato for the kids), the Café has dining covered for the day. And for those on the go, C Bar Café offers a boxed lunch including a sandwich, chips, pastry and drink for approximately $8-great for a picnic on the beach or to accompany a game of golf on the neighboring Newport Dunes Links course.
Of all the tasty treats at the Café, perhaps the most mentionable is the Italian gelato. According to Bendett, "Gelato has been around for over 400 years, contains 2/3 less fat than ice cream and tastes way better. Fruit based flavors (sorbetto) have no dairy in them, making them even healthier."
Bendett, who also owns the Coffee Waves shops in Port Aransas and Corpus Christi, attended gelato school in Baltimore, Md., where he learned to make gelato from a small family-owned Italian company. He makes Italian Gelato just as they do in Italy and uses the most up-to-date modern equipment available to ensure the highest consistency and quality. All gelato served at C Bar Café will be made fresh just a few miles down the road at Coffee Waves Port Aransas.
Bendett says that, aside from his two Coffee Waves shops, no one else sells fresh made gelato on the Coastal Bend. With over 90 different gelato and sorbetto flavors rotating on a weekly basis, Café customers will never be bored of the sweet confection.
