They help with menu contents and allergies. The waitress helped with choices in the menu. I recommend the desserts. Death by chocolate.

Another waitress recommended Hester's for breakfast, so we gave it a try. Small, eclectic café - order at the counter and they serve you. Combination bakery and café with wooden tables. I ordered the egg / cheese breakfast sandwich on sourdough - delicious with a creamy latte. My friend ordered the mushroom, bacon omelet that was creamy and tasty. Of... More

I toured the art museum with some friends. We had drinks and desert afterwards. I enjoyed my visit and the treat.

I like everything in Corpus Christi and have been to Hester's numerous times and it never fails to be great - no matter the location. My favorite location is the one at the Blue Frog Mercantile but that is because of the great shopping attached. Business or pleasure, it is a fun place for a girl lunch.

My friend is a vegetarian, and she had the eggplant, veggie sandwich and chips, and I had a piece of quiche with a salad...then their awesome key lime pie to split for her birthday! We ate, watched ships sail by, then toured the museum. It was a fun afternoon! I'd certainly recommend eating there! Great food!

The quiches and soups are especially delicious. Their cookies and scones are great, too. We'be been to functions that they have catered. Breakfasts are really good, too.

We had an amazing breakfast here. First we had a homemade cinnamon bun that was great (and not too sweet) and I had the copano omelet (shrimp, bacon) and my wife had the granola with yogurt. My mother in law had the French toast and all of them exceeding expectations. I wish they were open on Sunday and we would... More

This is a great place for lunch and dessert. Had the Cubano sandwich - very tasty. Not quite all of the ingredients on a Cuban sandwich, but good none-the-less. Save room for dessert. Just check out the display before you order.

Allow me to preface this by saying that I have seen Hester's start from a small coffee shop to a full-blown restaurant slash coffee shops. This is a great place to go with couples and Friends the food is prepared simply and is exceptional in its flavor. The staff reflect the attitude of the owner which is uplifting fun and... More
