Hester's has a delicious breakfast and lunch menu. There muffins are fresh, the omelets are loaded with veggies and the soups are made fresh daily. They have the best quiche in town. The atmosphere is lively and the owners and staff are friendly and welcoming.

We have never had a bad experience here. This city is laid back and all about convenience and comfort. It's a gem in a town with low standards.

Hester's cafe has amazing sandwiches, soups, salads and baked goodies!! I highly recommend - not your ordinary boring ham n cheese. Go to any location for good good, but if you want good good and ambience go to the art museum location. Bon apetit!!

A great place for breakfast or lunch. So many choices and no choice is wrong. Food is always fresh and delicious. The portions are generous. The griddle toast is a must for breakfast. The pasta dishes are great for lunch. Save room for dessert.
