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.

I visit here weekly! My daughter insists on a visit or two when home from college as well. Food is fresh and with just the right amount of yummy things to keep you guessing ! Coffee is always hot and flavorful . The place is bright and cheery - pick any of their 3 locations and you won't be disappointed... More

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

I have been coming to Hester's for years but they've made some upgrades recently and the restaurant is much nicer and has more space for patrons. I do wish they offered simple deli items. Fantastic breakfast served all day. I highly recommend the Duke Ellington. Griddle Toast is like French Toast and perfectly done!

While on a business trip with my husband, I had a wonderful lunch at Hester's! It consisted of the Monte Christi and a bowl of fresh fruit. Everything was tasty and well-presented. The staff was courteous and attentive. I dislike eating alone, but it was worth it for such a nice lunch. Be sure to visit The Bleu Frog Mercantile... More

Hester's has such a unique atmosphere and great food you'll think you are in Austin. Now Austin is known for it's food and cool atmosphere so this is a real compliment. I have had wonderful breakfast's and lunches both business and solo.

Ordered Texas Wave sandwich with chips and.the California Crab Cake sandwich with salad. Both were delicious and nice sized portion. Chips seemed homemeade as they were warm and tasty. Crab cake sandwich was very good, but ate with a fork for neatness. Salad was nice greens with balsamic vineagarette dressing. Lemonade was excellent as was the berry blueberry tea! Texas... More
