Lamar Square location. I had expected more from the TA reviews I read. I ordered the Curfew omelette. It was OK, too lite on the feta cheese. I expected a more flavorful taste from this combination. The whole preparation was dry and somewhat rubbery in texture. Potatoes we inspiring. Wife and mom in law had Duke Ellington scramble. No complaints... More

This is a great lunch spot. Set in a shopping center it has inside and patio self -seated dining. Easy to find and get in and out in an hour. Great selection of sandwiches and salads as well as yummy desserts if you care to indulge. It does get busy over the noon hour as it is very popular; so... More

Excellent food, reasonable prices, and staff extremely nice. I took my parents for breakfast and we all walked out very satisfied and dad is one of the pickiest eaters I know. Worth making a stop for the bakery if you dont have time for eating a meal.

They help with menu contents and allergies. The waitress helped with choices in the menu. I recommend the desserts. Death by chocolate.

Another waitress recommended Hester's for breakfast, so we gave it a try. Small, eclectic café - order at the counter and they serve you. Combination bakery and café with wooden tables. I ordered the egg / cheese breakfast sandwich on sourdough - delicious with a creamy latte. My friend ordered the mushroom, bacon omelet that was creamy and tasty. Of... More

I like everything in Corpus Christi and have been to Hester's numerous times and it never fails to be great - no matter the location. My favorite location is the one at the Blue Frog Mercantile but that is because of the great shopping attached. Business or pleasure, it is a fun place for a girl lunch.
