So scrumptious! I've been going to Hester's for 7+ years. The excellent quality and taste of their food has not changed, only improved. Their Villa St. Jacques has been my go-to over the years but everything I've ever had has been good. (Especially the sweets. You can't forget to try the brownies!)

Hester's has become a must stop for the family every time we visit Corpus. The food is very good. Everything my wife and I have had has been excellent. Every time we have been there, all of the people who work there have been happy and helpful. Highly recommend.

My husband and I went to Hester's on our annual beach trip. There were so many delicious things on the menu, it was hard to choose just one. Loved the decor as well! We sat on the stools under the arched windows. Loved the location near great shops too. We can't wait to go back next year!

Looking for a place other than hotel restaurants or fast food for breakfast? Try Hester's. The breakfast menu includes traditional eggs, omelettes, French toast as well as healthy alternatives such as made-from-scratch granola and fruit. Hester's has two other locations, as well. The Art Museum location is supposed include a spectacular view of the bay.

I was really looking forward to trying the new location because I love the food and atmosphere at the Hester's at Six Points. This Hester's isn't bad but I didn't think it was anything special. I felt it was overpriced for the experience. I'd rather eat breakfast at IHOP (International House of Pancakes.)

This is a quaint, trendy little restaurant that we found on Yelp. We wanted breakfast in a place with some atmosphere. Also, there was a bit of an ocean drive for us to get there, so we loved that. The food was hot, fast and delicious. We did a usual breakfast, but they had some fabulous looking panini's on the... More

I highly recommend all three locations of Hester's. The original location at Six Points serves a great breakfast; the Lamar Park location is terrific for a nice luncheon; and the Art Museum locations is not only yummy, but beautiful, with its views of the water.

This venue has magnificent views of the water side of Corpus Christi - the Aquarium, the Port, it's in the beautiful Atr Museum of South Texas, and the food is good. The variety of food selection is limited due lack of a dedicated kitchen. However they do good job of preparing sandwiches, and similar foods. Very good service and popular... More
