Outside doesn't look like much and parking in front you'll think it's an abandoned building however all the action is in back. Do go in for a culinary delight awaits! The omelets are delightful made with fresh ingredients along with their pan fried red potato's and toast, yet don't sell their muffins short they are to die for soft and... More

Doesn't look like much from the street. Walk inside and it's a cute, clean, bustling cafe. Great breakfast and house coffee was excellent

The coffee is great and so is the Griddle Toast! The staff is friendly and prompt--make sure to go. There is a really cute shop connected to it.

We wanted to try this place based upon the positive reviews on TA. When we arrived the line was short and the service was prompt. Everything is very carefully prepared with a level of attention to creating a memorable meal. Be sure to be prepared to wait in line depending what time you get there. Within 30 minutes of us...

If you want greasy breakfast, this is not the place to go. Although they were very busy on a Saturday morning at 8:30, the service was excellent! Highly recommend the Ponderosa Omelet and the Corpusborg Omelet (which has a south texas flair), Food was served hot and with courtesy. Lots of choices for different coffees. Pastry and breads home made.... More

If you are military, you will understand what this phrase SNAFU means. I ordered a coffee, a glass of orange juice (OJ) and a Monte Christo sandwich. My husband had the same sandwich and a hot chocolate. Alright, the orange juice is $2.50 a glass. No problem. However, the glass came only 3/4 of the way full. I took a... More

I love coming to Hester's for breakfast. The food is great! They also have a variety of fresh bakery items to choose from. The atmosphere is nice and clean, although the place can get a bit crowded at times.

This is one of my favorite places in CC and I've been going there ever since it opened. I moved away to San Antonio, and this is a required stop on all my trips back to CC. I always get the Texas Wave on foccacia bread, but I have tried other items including breakfast and everything is yummy. The service... More

Popular neighborhood café with a variety of breakfast and bakery items to choose from. Next door to a gift shop. My cousins discovered it in their travels for breakfast items. Very enjoyable experience.

We walked here from Cole Park with our dogs for breakfast. I had the Garden of Eaten omelet. I substituted eggs for egg whites and it was extremely tasty with lots of grilled veggies inside. My husband had two enormous kolaches with jalapeños, sausage and cheese. I have eaten here many times for both breakfast and lunch and they never... More
