Hester's uses the freshest ingredients and food is consistently yummy. The desserts are so delicious! I'm a fan of their decorated sugar cookies.

Grab lunch. The best. Sandwiches are great. I like this part of town. Nice shops close by and only a couple minutes from downtown.

Had breakfast here twice. Breakfast was great each time. The key lime pie was to die for. Wish I could have taken a whole pie back home with me.

This bakery, Café, coffeehouse was a great find. My Florentine Panini was delicious; Pete's Ruben panini was very good and Hollys quiche Florentine Monterey was yummy. And then the deserts were spectacular. Even the gluten-free peanut butter cookies was delicious! We will come back for breakfast!

Always a treat to have lunch at Hester's. It's unique location inside the Art Museum of Corpus Christi offers stunning views of over Corpus Christi Bay, Harbor Bridge, Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington. The food and service are superb. Don't leave without sampling the yummy desserts. I take my group of Road Scholars to Hesters each time they... More
