Great little breakfast place in Corpus. We had some delicious griddle "French" toast and an amazing spicy shrimp omelette. Worth the stop on the way to the beach.

Great breakfast within walking distance of our home. Food choices can be very healthy or decadent, your choice. All are delicious. Tempting pastries in the case. Service is very good and friendly!

Hester's is quaint and bright. Delicious food and coffee. Attached to a little store with lots of knick knacks.

Love this place! There are three locations in town and all are great! The sandwiches are very good and the house chips I wish they would bag and sell to the masses. My favorite is their lemon blueberry cheesecake! Don't ask, just try!!!

Nice people with good wholesome food. I get the half sandwich (still huge) with a bowl of tortilla soup ( best in town). They bake all their own bread and pastry.

Hester's Cafe excels at taking the typical and making it flavorful. Their dishes reflect local color with coastal bend flavors. Enjoys breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Great place for family, best friends, or business.

Great healthy food. Laid back relaxing atmosphere. We expected a line but walked straight in 11.15 on Saturday. Staff very helpful. We would definitely come back next time we come here.

The concierge at our hotel told us about Hesters and it was fantastic!! Their food was fresh, coffee was delicious and service was fantastic. We would go back here in a heartbeat. This is the kind of local place we're always looking for when we travel and it did not disappoint.

The menu is limited, but still has good variety. The portions are sufficient. Desserts are yummy. The location in an art museum and on the water can't be beat.
