Good food but way too noisy for a pleasant meal. Only location I will eat at is at the Art Museum where it is quieter.

Great Breakfast place and very good coffee. The restaurant is in somewhat of a historic dining area in Corpus Christi which adds to the atmosphere. The staff is friendly and they offer good service.

Hester's is always good for a salad or a sandwich at lunch time AND it is particularly good for Saturday brunch. We met friends of ours from out of town at Hester's in Lamar Park at 10:00.

I had a soup and sandwich lunch combo. It was delicious and filled me up. We were able to shop next door while we waited for our food. Will definitely go back!

Too pricey. Desert was good but expensive, but mushroom soup was bland. Also, dining area is pretty small. Crowded.

Probably hands down the best dinning experience we had in Corpus. We are planning on having breakfast here the remainder of our stay.

My co-worker and I visited Hester's for breakfast. I got an omelet that was fresh and amazing. She had a quiche and an apricot muffin! Everything was excellent. The atmosphere was perfect!

This is a trendy, yuppie, breakfasty, brunhcy, lunchy, counter service sort of place with good food and athmosphere. The staff is very professional and friendly. They are all ages. This is probably a family owned restaurant/experiment. Try them out. The food is eclectic and pretty good. Lots of seating inside and it flows over into the antique shop next door.... More
