great food

Hesters is probably the best sandwich place in town. it's location is off from the south side of town however, the 15/20 minute drive is worth it.

First time at Hester's. Really enjoyed the simple, but unique decor. Very, very clean. Coffee and finger foods were excellent. I would love to go back for breakfast as recommend by a family member.

We are regular Hester's visitors. Brunch is good and lunch is good! Me and my husband enjoy dates here with their cozy and friendly environment. we LOVE the deserts and have not been disappointed with anything on the menu. We even had our wedding rehearsal dinner at Hester's at The Museum! You can't go wrong here!

At Hesters, you order at the counter (and get to view all the sweet goodies in the case) and then they bring your food out. Always clean, usually crowded. All three locations have a different vibe. I've eaten at all three over the past couple of years.

Their quiche is good, as are the sandwiches, and if you are fatigued from murmuring over too much art, you can grab a... More

I've eaten here once in a while. The omelets are delicious and the baked goods always a treat. The place reminds of the some of the restaurants like this in Austin.

Hester's is a very well known quaint restaurant for brunch and lunches. The atmosphere, drinks, entrees and desserts are unique and delicious. The service is always very good and personal. I recommend this restaurant to anyone living in or visiting Corpus Christi. It is always a pleasurable experience.
