Order at the counter, sit down and they bring you your food. He got the Curlew omelette and I got the Louie Armstrong. Both of our potatoes came out cold. Bacon was thin. He said his omelette had no taste of eggs. No one checked on is after food was brought out. Not sure what the hype is about this... More

We have been to Hester's several times now during our trips to Corpus and they never disappoint, for breakfast or lunch. They also have a great selection of coffees and fresh bakery items, which we load up on for our trip back home.

This place has a great vibe and food to match. They have a wide variety to meet any palate. I especially like their quiche choices and their homemade soups. You will not be disappointed.

I had a business lunch here after a recommendation. You wait to place your order and it is brought to your table. There are a lot of eclectic combos like poblano corn chowder with half a roast beef with goat cheese sandwich. Lots of uncommon choices for the Corpus food set. I had one of their quiche combos which was... More

Good variety of food for everyone. I had eggs with fruit and griddle toast only to find out it was french toast and it was fabulous!

Hester's was a "must see" on our list of things to do in Corpus Christi. And am I glad we went - amazing coffee!! We only had breakfast, but the menu was quite extensive. We had eggs, toast, fruit, oatmeal. Make sure this is on your to-do list as well.

This is the kind of place you would expect to find in a much bigger city like San Antonio or Austin. It has a varied menu and I would say the breakfast and the coffee were good to excellent. We would definitely go back. My only complaint was that I ordered the "Garden of Eaten" which claimed to be topped... More

Have had their food several times.. Is OK. Almost as if they try too hard. Try to get too fancy. For example.. They serve a BLT made as a pannini that for some reason they feel the need to add avacado. The sandwich without avacado is OK.. Nothing special though. Overall I suggest you look at the menu online before... More

I've only ever been here for lunch twice. Cute location, but for some reason I just don't get comfortable eating here. I've gotten the sun dried turkey and the panini on the Gruene. Both were tasty, thick with turkey and greens. If it were closer I would stop in to take with me.

This place is the reason I love yelp! Never would of found this place, and even if I happened to see it driving around I wouldn't think it was this great of a place. I really have nothing bad to say about this place. The coffee was great, the Duke "Ellington" was ridiculous (Both because of the size and the... More
