I've never had a bad meal at Hester's! Salads, sandwiches, and tempting desserts. They use fresh ingredients, whole grains, it feels healthy (okay, maybe not the desserts!) Treat yourself to delicious!

We went on Monday around 0900 at the one in LAMAR PARK because apparently the other locations are closed Mondays ; the place is not packed ( which is nice ) . You pick from the menu written on the wall ( cool) order at the counter and then you seat yourselves. The food tastes good. Being that it was... More

Hester's is our first pick for weekend breakfast. The food is not your usual and it never disappoints. Gourmet coffees and muffins, pie and coffee cake are are always fresh and to die for. Its often crowded, but they have added more tables in the specialty shop adjacent. After breakfast check out the Blue Frog Mercantile.

This is my favorite of the 3 Hester's locations. The Lamar Park site has the best atmosphere, the AMST location has the museum and the view and this location (6 Points) has the best food. Impeccably prepared and served quickly, its wide array of standards and more unusual offerings never fail to please. The ideal lunch spot.

Good gourmet deli food. All dishes are fresh. Service is good. Gets really busy during lunch. The carrot spice cake is delish. They also offer a great catering service.

Don't let the prices put you off if you're from out of town....it's worth it, especially if you're visiting here The food is ALWAYS fresh and nothing like most cafe stops. Even something that sounds as typical as a tomato basil soup and avocado applewood bacon panini is elevated to a new level.... The Monte Cristo sandwich is excellent. Breakfasts... More

Reminds me of a place that would be on Diners, Drive-inns & Dives. Good comfort food at decent prices.

This place is far above average for Corpus Christi with a great menu of brunch and lunch foods, tasty deserts, and good service. Coffee could be stronger. Seating is limited, and the restaurant is sometimes a little warm.
