Excellent stop for lunch, located by the Blue Frog. We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed every single bite. The food is unique, freshly made and delicious. The staff are very helpful and cordial. This is just one of the three restaurants they have in Corpus Christi and they are all placed in wonderful spots-by the Blue Frog, the... More

This place offers an excellent variety of soups, sandwiches and salads. Went here with some friends for lunch and was blown away by the quality and selection. The chicken salad was awesome, and the cobb salad was incredible. A great atmosphere with food this good...I will definitely be back!

Hester's has become so popular they have now added two more locations. Each location has a slightly different atmosphere and menu.

Highlighted in the March 2015 issue of The Bend Magazine as being the #1 breakfast in Corpus, I decided to visit along with my daughter earlier this month. It seems to be in a run down area of town, but I am not familiar with Corpus-- with parking and the entrance on the side, not on the main address street.... More

The breakfast items are tasty. Not fond of their sandwiches though as the bread seems on the dry side. But it is a regular stop for us.

They have wrought iron tables and chairs with umbrellas. Price is a little on the high side (mine was $9.29 plus tax for a sandwich... More

Every time I eat at Hester's I can't wait to go back! Now we have two locations to choose from! If you want to go for lunch get there by 11:30 or the line will be out the door! And you MUST save room for one of their homemade desserts! Everything is made fresh daily. Also, Hester's is connected to... More
