My family and I have visited Hester's many times on various visits to Corpus Christi. This quaint breakfast/coffee spot always delivers high quality food and friendly, helpful staff. My favorite menu item is a 4-egg breakfast plate called the Ella Fitzgerald.

I love this little place as it's a small, quiet place to have coffee or even a small breakfast as well as chat or have a small business meeting. The prices are fair and the coffee is great as well.

My first visit to Hesters included a fantastic breakfast of two eggs and the best french toast Ive had in a while! Known as "Griddle Toast", the Texas version of the french variant, they were relatively as thick. Great coffee, personable staff and fresh fruit...More

Lamar Square location. I had expected more from the TA reviews I read. I ordered the Curfew omelette. It was OK, too lite on the feta cheese. I expected a more flavorful taste from this combination. The whole preparation was dry and somewhat rubbery in...More
