Needs gluten-free options

The egg dishes are delicious as are the salads. It would really help to have gluten-free bread and other options. This would make me go to Hester's more often.

I come here about once a month to have a ladies lunch with the other girls in my office. I love the food here. Great choice of delicious sandwiches, soups, salads, and DESSERT! I've ordered several different things and everything has been amazing. I do feel it is a bit expensive, but definitely worth the money I spend every time... More

Love everything I've tried at Hesters. It's located within the Art Museum and has great views of the bridge, the aquarium, the bay and the ships coming into port. The desserts are fantastic as well.

While touring the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas, I stopped in at the Art Museum's cafe. The manager, Chris, visited with us, and added delightful information about the cafe and the exhibits. We had the lunch special, which was beautifully prepared, and reasonably priced. The view from the cafe is magnificent, particularly when one of... More

Their coffee and breakfast selections are among the best in Corpus. At Hester's, they focus on fresh ingredients with multiple healthy selections. I often get a more traditional breakfast - either an omelette or bacon and eggs.
