Hester's Cafe at the Art Museum is a lunchtime fav for many local Corpus Christi clubs and lunchers. The view of the bay is incredible! Hester's offers many (but not all) of their sandwiches and soups. Really good food and splendid atmosphere! Recommended: the Swinney Switch Salad or one of the daily specials!

We found this place after our horrible dining experience with another restaurant in Corpus. It was the best French Toast that I have ever had. When first looking at the menu, I thought that they were a little pricey. But when I saw the portions and tasted the food, I changed my mind. It is a little noisy, but we... More

Found this place on Tripadvisor and decided to try lunch. They offer a variety of sandwiches and salads and baked items as well as a good breakfast selection. I usually wouldn't order an omelet for lunch but it sounded too good to pass up. It did not disappoint. I forget the name but I had the one with ham and... More

Read mixed reviews, like most places. After wading through the high and low, we figured we would take the chance. So glad we did! Food was well above average, our waiter was great! Prices were very reasonable too! I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking for a good place to eat :-)

My beautiful wife and I were craving a good cup of coffee. We were in downtown Corpus Christi on a Saturday morning and googled the nearest coffee shop. Hester's came up. It was just before lunch, brunch was still being served. I had the Jenny Wren. It was awesome. It's basically eggs Benedict on a cheese scone. The scone was... More

I went to Hester's for the first time yesterday, and it was amazing! I had the Fairchild, which is a turkey sandwich with Vermont cheddar, and granny smith apple slices. It was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. The homemade kettle chips had a seasoning on them that was perfect. I also tried the German chocolate cheesecake. I... More

I was visiting Corpus Christi on business with my husband. After tasting the coffee at the hotel, I knew I needed to find somewhere else for my morning coffee. I decided on Hester's after reading all the reviews, and although I am now back in my hometown, miles away from Corpus Christi, I am STILL craving Hester's coffee. I have... More

Staff was courteous and helpful to our family of five securing a larger table. Omelet eggs were dry, Otherwise the soup and paninis were good but not great. Generally lacked additional flavor that we were expecting.
